The Ghost of Faffner Hall

Got a letter from Joanne today ... click here.
The link to Joanne's page, where she posts most days, is in the Lookee Here column on the left.

Most afternoons I ask Everett, "Wanna come for a walk with me?" Today I almost fell off my chair when he said "Yeah, I guess so." I squealed. I can't remember when's the last time he said yes.
So off we went. He had the camera this time. It was the kind of day when the skin on your hand would freeze pretty quick, but only 20C-below so we've had worse. It wasn't bad till we were out beyond the shelter of trees and the wind got to us. We didn't go too far before turning to head for home.

Casper and Jenna love the Hand-Me-Down Mink

The step always needs sweeping


  1. Haven't thought about her in awhile. Thanks for sharing.

  2. I just noticed the Rilke quote, which I absolutely love!

  3. what a quirky little video. I almost didn't pay attention to the music....I got fascinated with the earrings and the teeth. then I got scared silly by all that winter. We have winter here too, but it's contained by buildings and bridges. None of the people I saw yesterday were hand-me-down mink people either, although faux-mink seemed popular.

  4. This would be Phil and I - me wanting to walk, him not so much ... until that day he floors me. So nice!
