Two book signings this month. First on Dec 1 at Burnstad’s Holiday Extravaganza, and another on Monday Dec 12 for the retired teachers of Monroe County. Its been a quiet week here in Lake Tomah, paraphrasing Garrison Keiller. No snow here in Tomah, Wisconsin so far this season. I do like snow, ’cause I took up cross-country skiing last winter, the first winter I was retired from teaching. Like to go up to Milliston to the Black River State Forest. They do an excellent job of grooming the trails. I bouoght a season pass. Went about 8 times last winter. Got the Christmas decorations up around the house. We do a modest amount. Our whole row of 6 houses are very beautiful. Invite you to drive by and see them.
