I love that first quote!

You are right about those kind words warming us! The lure of frozen characters waiting for me at Rice Park, camera in hand, has been so horribly paused, as old man winter has been working his hardest to keep us from going. But we don't care, -8 degrees isn't stopping us today. Why? The sun is out! See you later alligator! Peace, Karen
