Here's a break from tombstones and books. Since the late eighties Mark and I have tried to be with our Vermont friends Bob and Sue at Christmas time in Montreal. We've missed a few years ... went to Boston one year, to New York City in 2001, and to Newport another year. I like pictures with hoardings in the background.
Bob and Sue, aside from their regular jobs, raise alpacas on their ten-acre Coyote Creek Farm in Vermont. Alpacas are absolutely adorable. Bob and Sue are also. I miss them every day.
