Another New Year! Oh......good.

You'd think I would like New Years!

A chance to party, often in a very elegant way.

A final kick at the can for the pessimists, a whole new chance to get it right for the 'glass half full 'crowd.

But it makes me uncomfortable.

Probable summed up best by W.H. Auden's poem, Well, so That is That.

Well, so that is that

Wystan Hugh Auden (1907-1973)

Well, so that is that. Now we must dismantle the tree,

Putting the decorations back…

So, who's this Merlot chick, anyway?

A good question.

My first foray into the world wide web,and I had the amazing good luck to land at 4MA (4 mystery addicts, at Yahoo!)

A minor mishap with my( and others) names, resulted in the list owner, Maddy V.H.(who is great) bestowing my nickname upon me. Given my preference for red wine, it seemed like a good match.(and it sounds a lot more dashing than 'Grants')

Merlot has all of my good points and none of my flaws.She can say things that I might not, and get away…

It's never too late to make new friends

Thanks to all of you who have requested me to add you as friends.

If I don't know who you are, does it matter? Or maybe I know you from 4MA?

I am SUCH a Luddite.

Bare with me please.

Merlot- loving this site, but very confused


If you don't know me, or in the rare event that I have forgotten who you are (CRS!), please say hello!

Hot damn!
I won my LCC 2009 registration fee! Amazing what you can achieve when you are no longer afraid to act like an idiot!

Your hat is SO cute! I miss a lot of stuff that appears on my page, too.

LOLOL! I'm awaiting new glasses so we'll see if that helps cure my ability to typo freely. Somehow I think I'll stay the same, with or without the glasses.
Spooky came to us as a foundling and took over our house. It was only later that we realized that the wild eyed baby with the huge head and tiny body was actually a Maine Coon cat, very intelligent, very well-behaved and the best of all animal worlds. Yes, I'm definitely owned. :-p

Things are far too tame here (cross posted from Jack's page). Is everyone sleeping? Saving energy for the Halloween bash? Reading? Guess the weather here is getting to the stage where lawn games are out but we could have a ski day soon.
