Walkin' in a Winter Wonderland

Yes, it's sweltering hot outside. Yes, we're all miserable and melting and praying the power grid doesn't go down so we can keep our fans and air conditioners running. But I was inspired by a local radio station, which is periodically playing winter songs, such as "Frosty the Snowman," during commercial breaks, to share this picture with you.

By the way, the station is WEOL, 930 AM on your radio dial. It comes out of Lorain/Elyria, and it plays Glenn Beck from 9 to 12 every weekday. Maybe some of you that can't pick up 610 to hear Herr Beck could get this station??

Lastly, although I don't think there are a lot of former wanna-be preppies out there, I had to share this folder I found with you! It's like, so totally cool, I said "Fer sure!" If you go to their web site and find the items in their "Prep Cool" collection, you can see the rest of this gnarly set, but their website design is poor (in my opinion) and does not allow you to link directly to a collection.

As a former preppie, and owner of the The Official Preppie Handbook, I must say--the spouting whales rock! LOL! That's just sooo early '80s. I sort of wish with this awful heat that madras was making a comeback, but I somehow doubt it.

I have actually seen some madras in some catalogs lately. I've yet to determine whether it is coming back or the designers are pushing it.

I can't wait for winter so that I can wish it were summer again.
