Packed and loaded the Flex yesterday for our on again-off again flight to the snowy Northwest. One guy wanted to go with us pretty badly.
We recruited these wild and crazy dog sitters to babysit Uno while we are gone.
Drove down to Sky Harber at noon. After a two hour wait and 157 cancelled flights we finally got on a plane and after a 45 minute delay we took off and made it to SEA TAC and then on to our destination. We woke up this morning to this.
More snow storms followed by ice storms rolling in. Strangely beautiful to a desert rat.
Of course, the most delightful site to grandpa Ha ha is this one of grandkids doing art.

"When people say they love winter and snow what they really mean is the proof against it."
—Old Vaquero Saying
I've read the book four times. When the film first came out It was viewing in one theatre in our state 70 miles away, our kids were in Junior High and we took them out of school to see it. Years later we still talk about it. the movie is one of the most beautiful movies filmed and captures the book in its spiritual entirety. The film is lyrical and haunting and I agree maybe the best western of all time. Ron Hanson and Cormac McCarthy are two gifted writers who have equally captured the soul of the American West- I have gifted their books and film adaptions many times. Merry Christmas, True West!ReplyDelete
