Here is Toto. His humans are our friends Ron and Steve. We had the privilege of being invited over into their inner sanctum full of glittering lights, skillfully restored antiques, and kooky memorabilia collections. (One whole room was devoted to The Wizard of Oz!) They are among the very few people who have proven themselves to be friends here in this unfriendly place. Where kindness and hospitality are rare, you learn to appreciate the exceptions more.
Here is a frosty interior window this morning, and the Skullies holding down their narrowing space amid the boxes.
