Dear Mother Nature - 12/30/10 10:55 AM
Dear Mother Nature, The snow you showered us with for Christmas was absolutely BEAUTIFUL! It's been 47 years since you thought about giving Pinehurst a 'White Christmas' and we are honored that you put us back up at the top of the list. Please don't take this the wrong way, but for future reference, a couple of inches of the fluffy white stuff would've had the same impact on us Southerner's as the 6" inches that you actually gave us. I'm just saying... You see..., I'm in the real estate business and most folks move here to Pinehurst to escape the winter (2 comments)

A Winter Wonderland In The South - 12/26/10 03:53 PM
When you were looking for a house here in Pinehurst: Did I say that it rarely snows here? Did I say we usually get a little dusting of the white stuff, but not until January or February? Did I tell you that the golf is great in the winter months? Did I suggest that you donate all your winter boots/clothes to goodwill? Did I laugh when I saw your snow shovel in the moving truck? Did I tell you that you would no longer need that 4x4 SUV? Well, my friends, I take it ALL back!!! It is a Winter Wonderland (36 comments)
Christmas Gift Suggestions to Live By!! - 12/22/10 09:27 AM
I'm not really into the gift buying 'part' of the commercialized Christmas. If there are children in my life, then I will buy them gifts. But, if you're an adult in my life, chances are you will be invited to my house for dinner or I will be giving you homemade treats with a card that explains what you mean to me. If you have a dog, then your dog(s) will be receiving homemade doggie biscuits from me, Basil & Bree-Bree! The post by Judith, below, is sooooo SIMPLE, but TRUE to the SEASON in my opinion. May your holiday be (4 comments)

Me & My Sidekick (Basil) And Our Kodak Moment - 12/15/10 05:10 PM
Me & My Sidekick (Basil) And Our Kodak Moment Wow, this contest is a really tough one! Sooooo many pictures, soooooo many 'Kodak Moments'...how do I pick just one?!?! I spent many hours looking through old photos that I have in albums, shoeboxes, bags, dresser drawers and on my laptop. After I'd quickly flipped through about 100 photos, I realized that I was missing out on what I was looking at. This was my LIFE that I was flipping through soooo quickly! So, I put everything aside...poured myself a glass of wine...got cozy with a blanket in my favorite chair and SLOWED (6 comments)

I rarely let my dog off the leash, but there is a trail up in the mountains of NC where we go on the weekends that isn't well known...so, we let Basil enjoy a bit of freedom this past weekend. During the fall months, I panic when I can't see him AND believe me I can lose sight of him very quickly with all the leaves on the ground. He blends in and disappears!!! Happy Friday Everyone!
