The Zoo

The Friday after Thanksgiving is free day at the zoo! How could we pass that up? Sadly, the giraffes (shouldn't that be giraves?) were not out because of the cold. I wonder where they go during the winter. Do they migrate south? We did enjoy the other animals though, here's what everyone was up to:

The camels were gossipping about their neighbors, or was it about us?
The zebra was looking for his contact lens which had fallen out.
The mandrill was challenging all the visitors to a staring contest.
The ostriches were helping the zebra look for the lost contact lens.
The tapir had to pee and didn't feel like walking over to the bathroom.

Christmas Spirit


The Christmas spirit lives on Jackson Road. That's what the sign said out front and from what I saw, I'd say it's definitely true. From my aunt's house in Cornish, you just go down the muddy driveway, across the dirt road, along a stream, up a hill, around a bend, and you can't miss the glowing wonderland. It's only halfway decorated and already there's so much - they not only did their house but the mountain too. There are two tractors and a motorcycle covered with lights, a bunch of miniature displays in glass cases, numerous inflated holiday characters, a sleigh with Santa and his crew, a creche, Christmas music playing continuously, Rudolph's red nose shining up on the mountaintop, candy canes galore, I could go on and on. And that's only the outside - I won't even begin to describe the inside. Needless to say it was truly amazing. Clearly the highlight of our Thanksgiving in New Hampshire.

The Wig's Night Out

The Hallowig had its time in the spotlight this weekend. It felt so loved during the modelling sessions and photo shoots. It had such a good time in fact that it seems to have decided to stay in Arlington instead of coming home with me. I just hope you're happy wherever you are, Hallowig.

Two Years

This was my anniversary surprise! That's right, it was two years on Saturday. At night we went to Finale where we had the super duper quintuple chocolate plate. It may have had a slightly classier name than that but you get the idea. It was so good. Then I bought a winter coat. And rain pants. Romantic, isn't it?

Pilgrim Path

Pilgrim Path

On Sunday we went to Mt. Auburn Cemetery, America's first garden cemetery. We walked around, collected leaves, and climbed up the tower. I have to say it's the nicest graveyard I've ever been to. (Click on the photo to see it bigger.)

My Wig

Here's my Halloween creation for this year: the Hallowig. I'm tempted to keep wearing it after Halloween. It actually makes a great hat since it covers my ears and neck. Maybe I'll make more for the winter and have them in every color. Anyone want one?
