home for the holidays. . . .

winnetka is a very sweet, very small town on the edge of lake michigan, scant miles but many years away from the modern world.  everyone knows everyone else.  the word “appropriate” is used a lot and not in any sort of ironic way.  education is important.  it’s why we’re here.  and i haven’t spent a lot of time here in the past year and a half even though i love my little home.  

the windshield on my car was blown out and dealing with geico and safelight is a little like dealing with the two of the three stooges.  but one day the pratfalls will stop and i’ll get my car back and can hit the road.  in the meantime, i realize i am home for one of winnetka’s most cherished holiday weeks. .. .

    I can really identify with u about geico. If people knew what cheats they were nobody would use them.

    Dear ArLynn,
    I was drifting off to sleep this past Friday night, with an empty mind. And then it hit me – a way to support & share one of my favorite functions on my iPhone 4S(32MB). Collecting free software applications, commonly known as appshp

    I can relate to the holiday…in fact (my friends hate it) I don’t even own a tv. LOL. I do have my computer and my one favorite show (Dancing With The Stars) I watch a day late on that. 2012 and I’m still behind…what to do (besides laugh with sheer joy?)…LOL. I love your blog! 🙂

    I like Winnetka.. it has my vote for having the best ideas for festivals. Once upon a time in Iceland there was no tv on thursdays and none during the month of July….. I found it quite bizarre when I first came here on holidays with mum, but now looking back I think that it was probably a good thing. Well done you! Well done Winnetka!
