It is so clear out and the air is so crisp. Last night we could clearly see Anegada, that has only happened a few times! I hope it keeps on like this, my parents fly in tomorrow and I want them to see first hand what we always tell them about seeing all the other islands. Right now on the Northside, high up on Crown Mtn. there is no a breeze to be found. I dont want to have to use the dryer thinking

I'm having a great new year, I've been searching for an old friend from college and finally found him in CT. We were roomies at Goddard College years ago and shared a lot of interests. We finally got in touch and it has been so great to hear about and compare the last 30 years. I'm still looking for another old friend but no luck yet.

It a small thing but very important and fullfilling.

If the weather cooperates we'll be heading out to Buck Island with some friends today

I got 15 degrees F. with single digit wind chill, the 10:30AM (yes 10:30AM!) showing of Avatar in 3D is already sold out, and two kids that are going to be bummed when they wake up. Mind if we hop down from NYC and go snorkeling with you? Have fun!

Go J E T S! Jets! Jets! Jets! Jets!

I am so jealous. We are freezing here in Virginia. As much as I hate to leave the new grandbaby I am missing St. Croix, my animals and my friends. It is past time for JJ and I to come home.

I'll bet it smells so fresh on the island after that rain!thinking

It's been mid 70's and LOW humidity with a light breeze here in S.E. Texas and my husband and I keep saying it feels like we're on the island. Really giving us island fever BAD.

Hey Tammy! We really do have opposite schedules smiling We just left January 7th. I am in Vegas at the moment, then I hook up with Dan in Florida next Monday. We won’t be back on Island until the First week of April.

Did you ever find out who was “nosing” around in your stuff at the house?

Talk soon,
Dante

Hopefully we will see you in April Dante. No we didn't find out who was going through our things but nothing was stolen and he never came back. Maybe he saw the cameras. These cameras are great. They send us emails and we can look at our house no matter where we are via internet.

Thanks Lizard. I cannot say enough how happy we are to be back on island. JJ pitched a fit yesterday when I picked him up at school. He said I don't leave him there long enough. Wow, I hope that lasts all they way through high school.

I have to sing the praises of Sugar Mill Vet. Clinic once more. They took my dogs and cat at the last moment even when they really didn't have room for them. They kept them for 5 weeks, got 13 lbs off my very fat rottie and my pets were in excellent shape when we got home. No fleas, ticks and they were all very clean. Most impressive was how happy they were. Very calm and not stressed out at all. Thanks to all the staff at Sugar Mill, especially Bry.

Ok, I take that back about nothing being stolen from our house. As we get back to work on the house we are finding that things are missing. Hubby just discovered our blower is gone. Now we are really looking.
