What a difference a day makes…

…a few hours less than a day, actually. The toilet is all rebuilt with sturdy brass fittings and flushing merrily, the water around it totally mopped up, another holiday disaster survived, and all is once again well here in our unremittingly pleasant valley.

Sadly, however, all the Valentine's Day stuff is not yet installed on the shelves of the local drugstore, leaving the place looking somewhat disturbingly out of time, but we are assured that in only a day or so there will be no more trace of the jolly elf, and Cupid everywhere.. And then, Spring is right around the corner, and from all around the strains of that old, July carol, "Hot Dogs Roasting on an Open Fire."

It won't be so dark so early, either.
