Before my husband had a cell phone (and long before we dropped our land line) he had my phone along when he went to pick up his tux for our daughter's wedding. This was in Phoenix, a good 1200 miles from home. Not being used to carrying a cell phone, he left it on the counter in the tux shop. When he got back to our daughter's home, we realized he didn't have it. My daughter called the number and the phone was answered. "Did you find this phone?" "Yes." "Is it at the tux shop?" "Yes--we called and left a message!" And indeed, when we got home a week or so later there was a message on our home phone that he had left the phone at the tux shop and they would hold it till he came back for it.
No, they are expecting me to be off somewhere on the mountain on snowshoes looking for winter's natural sculptures. They will not be disappointed. But first and before I decide among the shots I sought out in my files last night, let's take a look at some other bits and pieces.
