Unfortunately, I don't know any Italian.

It is a chilly and sunny day here. 


It's chilly here as well.  We are supposed to get snow tomorrow.  Depending on where you are in the state the expected snowfall is between 3"-6".  I'm hoping we are in the 3" range and the snow is light and fluffy.  Our snow blower has a gas leak and is in the shop for another week or two.  
I no longer long for the old view!


I'm in Burbank hanging out with Marie and Dan and new baby Anderson who is one week old today.  Despite the fires we have had good weather--more affected by the wind a few days ago than smoke per se.  The closest fire was about 12 miles away, referred to as the Creek fire for those who are following closely. Temps this week in the high 70s and low 80s. Snowing lightly at home in Lake Bluff.

I haven't figured out how to post pictures here yet but there are several of Anderson on Facebook and Instagram.  #andersonwillis

He weighed 7 lb. 11 oz at birth and now weighs somewhat less, as is normal. I'll be here a few more days (my main job is shopping and cooking--oh and laundry).  Then I am coming back with the Wills on Dec 21 for Christmas.  Marie and Dan are doing a great job of taking care of him. They both have flexible work schedules and are hoping to manage without hiring outside caregivers, for the time being.

Congrats on the new grandchild, Diane! (Congrats to Marie and Dan, too.) Now I have to remember if I have an Instagram account...
But us, old friend,
What's to discuss, old friend?

(Yes, I do, and love Dan's sweatshirt. I assume Marie has one to match.)

He's just beautiful, Diane! Congratulations to you and to his Mom and Dad. 


Thanks.  He is very cute, and still very sleepy most of the time.

Dan's secondary Instagram account has a few pictures, especially under Instagram stories (of course those only last a day).  The account is @buck_fever.  His primary account is @thewhalingclub.
