Much Better Now

Standard

On the twelfth day of Christmas, my true love brought to me

twelve snowflakes flying

eleven ski runs open

ten powder stashes

nine wayward urchins

eight feet of falling

seven fan guns blasting

six chairlift buddies

five pints of beer

four Belgian waffles

three lifts a-running

two brand new twin-tips

and a tube of emu pain-relief oil

About Lori Holder-Webb

I'm a Southern Woman by birth and a Texan Woman by upbringing...and yet I find myself living in New England and married to a New York City boy. Up here we use the same currency as we do at home, and I don't need to travel with a passport, but the commonalities pretty much end there. The language is different, the jokes are different, the people are different, and the weather and terrain sure are different too. I moved away from Texas in 2002, and ever since then, I've been the stranger in the strange land... I've had some questions about the name of the blog - if you were not alive, or living abroad or under a rock, or in grad school during the late 1980s, Oldsmobile attempted to shuck its stodgy image with a series of commercials intended to bring brand appeal to the younger generation: this car, they said, is not your father's Oldsmobile. If you have a morbid curiosity, hit YouTube for William Shatner Oldsmobile...it will take you right there.
