Christmas Craziness....Already Begun
My brother flew in tonight from L'viv, Ukraine. He's been there for two years now (maybe less, who can remember?).
And he brought with him one of our distant relatives. A 49 year-old man who is, after some tedious calculation, most easily described as my mother's third cousin (we think). He doesn't speak any English and it's his first trip ever to America....so he's pretty excited about his 11 day visit.
(To bad I live in Boston, otherwise I could show him some decent food, decent fun, decent weather, decent people, etc.)
Anyways, it suffices to say that I'm pretty busy at the moment - and will be for the next 1.5 weeks. So the blog is going to suffer a bit. Sorry.
Tonight's low in Boston is forecast to be *9 degrees* - the coldest it's been thus far since last winter.
When the Ukrainian visitors got off the plane today....they actually thought it was warm here!
