I love your delicious haiku. The fruit, too--the sight took me home to the Dominican Republic. Thank you for that. :-)

A coup ... terrifying. I was in Havana in July of 1959 when Castro took power... we left in the nick of time. Memories to last my lifetime ...

To a happy holiday!

Love the mirror image of you and your granddaughter in her Minnie Mouse mask, . I'm not sure if I could handle 100 days of Christmas music. I've never heard of chennets before. Great still life of the fruit. Have a good week, Gillena.
