This is a special pic of Annie pup a few years ago.
I want to wish all a very safe and happy holiday, a great Christmas and a high sizzle New Year.
I am off to Los Angeles now – though I’m writing this from San Francisco. In a few days, I’ll be off to spend some time with friends in Carson City, Nevada — and will watch my friends ski at Squaw Valley. I’m too afraid of running into a tree to do that sort of thing — but I’ll be blogging with lots of snow around.
And then, I’ll be flying on New Year’s Eve morning to New York where I’ll be for the first moment of 2009.
All the best to everyone.
