Here's our new "cottage".
I say "cottage" because the front of it has that sort of "cottage-ey" look to it. But it's actually a quite large house with a two car attached garage in the rear. And there's a great view of the Black Hills to the northeast. You can't see Mount Rushmore, though.
O.K. I know. THOSE Black Hills are in South Dakota. But someone named these the Black Hills, too.
At any rate, we're headed back to cooler but milder weather in just a couple of weeks so I'd better get busy packing.
Oh and one other bit of business from yesterday's post. Texas Tech's Red Raiders thoroughly humiliated the Arizona State Sun Devils in the Holiday Bowl last night. I turned the television off when they intercepted a pass in our end zone with about 3 minutes left in the game. So much for my pre-game bravado and, apparently, the opinions of a lot of sports pundits.
So now I think I've covered everything.
Happy New Year, everyone!
