Happy New Year.

1-1-17 SHORT HILLS: We came back to NJ earlier than planned and ahead of the storm that dumped about a foot of snow on VT and northern New England. All we got here was rain, a good bit of rain, but not a flake of snow. The snow that we had has disappeared.

Today we did a walk with friends Ron, Bebe, Lynn and Bill and friends of a different species Gus, Bally, Maizie, Bella, Pepper and Annie. It was about 50° today, cloudless, with a mild breeze. We saw pansies still in bloom.

We did have some cold weather and frost in December, but not enough to shut these flowers down. Tuesday is supposed to be even warmer.

I saw a Trump spokesperson interviewed on CNN by Chris Cuomo. He said the earth is 5,500 years old. At 5.5 billion years, the earth is a million times older than his said it was. Some trees are 5,000 years old. Fasten your seat belts, it’s going to be a bumpy four years to, sort of, quote Bette Davis in All About Eve. Link below.

Not what I expect in January.
