Oh, Kate, I feel your pain!

Deb, without living in a place where it keeps coming, I do appreciate that feeling of being in a prison. Sometimes the heat of Arizona summers feels like that.

Keenan, I imagine that living in Alaska, you have to have a love-hate relationship with snow. I admit I've chosen to live in a place where it doesn't keep coming, just falls now and then.

Mark, I always thought the best part of living in Southern California is that you can find snow in the mountains if you want it, but don't have to live with it if you don't.

Susan, I can certainly understand your fear of driving in snow. Those little moments when the car slips and you don't know when the wheels will get traction again put my heart in free-fall, too! Love the story about your dad needing to finish plowing in time for you to open gifts!

by Kris Neri with the Femmes Fatales I love it when it snows. I love the beauty of the flakes floating down, and especially, the hushed quality that seems to settle over the landscape during a snowfall. It never fails... Continue reading

J.A., I'm so glad that you didn't flood or lose power during Harvey as well! And yay for another person who doesn't eat pumpkin -- I had no idea there were so many of us in this minority. I'm also grateful for my love of reading. I don't know how people live without it.

Deb, those sound like really great things to be grateful for! Bringing chocolate chip cookies after surgery is surely the mark of a true friend.

I'm glad your family is okay, too. I've always thought fire had to be the worst of the disasters. And it's great to know your mom doesn't like pumpkin pie, too.

Susan, those are good gratitudes. I agree about the small joys. I think they keep us sane. And yay for another person who doesn't eat pumpkin pie!

by Kris Neri with the Femmes Fatales These have become such dark times. Hurricanes seem to be getting stronger and leaving more damage in their wakes. My heart goes out to all of the people touched by them, including our... Continue reading

I love cheeseburgers in dives, too, Elaine! They tend to cook them the way people want, rather than assuming everyone likes them the same.

Elaine, thanks for sharing this. I'm so glad you, Don, and the cats are okay, and that your condo didn't suffer too much damage. As someone who has lived most of her life with earthquakes, which give no warning, I've always thought waiting for a hurricane to hit has to be the hardest.

Ellie, love the story about your brother and his grandson! I will look for a Basque restaurant. I know we don't have any where I live, but I'll look for them when I travel. Any place that does fries right has to be great!

Catroina, you've always struck me as a woman who carves her own path. And that's a compliment. Whatever you are, it works.

Susan, you sound like my kind of woman! I don't go to the mall on Black Fridays, either. Actually, I don't go to malls at all. Love the cargo pants/no purse idea!

by Kris Neri of the Femmes Fatales I am not high maintenance. I mean, really not. Sometimes I wonder if there’s something wrong with me, especially after I’ve rattled off my lunch order in a fraction of a second, while... Continue reading

Greg, it is a not-to-be-missed experience, but I'm sure you'll have other chances. You see them in lots of places. Your turn will come.

Toni, your flights sound great, too. How terrific to get a short, unexpected one! I missed the little glove box; too busy studying the gas canisters, I guess.

Donna, as great as balloon flights are, they might not be for you. They do float up ever-so gently, but then when you look down, it's clear the balloon is a long way up from the ground. If heights are a problem for you, you might want to pass on this experience.

Elaine, your flight sounds great, too. If Joe hadn't caught me getting out, my face would have hit the dirt. With all the stuff they cart around, they can't include a little set of stairs?

by Kris Neri of the Femmes Fatales I floated up where the clouds reign recently, and it was awesome. Joe and I took a hot air ballon ride through Northern Lights Balloon Expeditions in Sedona, AZ. In case you’ve ever... Continue reading

Margaret, I've found it interesting to learn all the construction issues, too, such as how to remove a load-bearing wall. Not that I'm doing it, but I didn't realize there was an option in the way of a header. And I've also been amused by how a house can't be sold unless it's staged with all new furniture. Aren't the buyers supposed to see their own things in that space? Do they have all new stuff? I really need to check out this British Baking Show.
