Winter Solstice at the Carden Estates
It got a little grim up here in Rhodes Cove last week. The temperature dropped to 17 degrees, my cat, Booger came in for the winter and my car doors were frozen shut. That is my old hot tub in which I bobbed and bubbled for three years while I listened to Nina Simone... before lightning struck it (twice). In the distance, you can see my barn (click on the picture) on which I once painted two game roosters fighting. A rumor started that I was holding illegal "cockfights," and I was "staked out" by some silly state investigators with binoculars. Somebody is always giving me credit for being more exciting/illegal/depraved than I am.
