Welcome back to my village.
It's more mine than usual right now because there are very few employees here. It's easy to have the cafeteria to myself, and on this morning's first walk the only person I saw was exercising in the gym.
A flock of waxwings exploded with a roar of wings.
The place is so empty, I can stroll along the road.
But I can't go here.
Several people have encouraged me to get skis, and I'm sure I'd enjoy the experience, but skis seem like a too large and impractical purchase for a non-driver who doesn't want to be dependent on others to get to most of the places to use them. My snowshoes are ordered.
Starting next month I'll have medical, dental, and vision insurance for the first time in years. It will cost about 1/3 of my paycheck and there's only a tiny medical clinic anywhere I can get to until next October, but there's nothing else to spend it on but beer and my favorite brand isn't sold here anyway. I'm going to have to find a supplier from Gardiner.
