I spent the day in the mountains with back to back meetings. Beautiful out, full sun and blue sky. The kind of day you should be enjoying the snow instead of the snow covered trees as you drive. And to rub it in I passed a ski area with just a few people playing on the slopes. We're going on the fourth winter since I strapped on my two planks. I really need to get out and play.
In other news I found the coolest toy store in town. They have all the good stuff, Doug & Melissa, Alex, Imaginetics, Puzzibilities, those funky european toys. I went in to get a gift for Keegan's friend and walked out with a couple of things for Keegan and Isabelle too. Too tempting. Maybe I should run a toy store. The guy behind the counter seemed happy. And I bet he is never subject to the whims of state government or miles of red tape. I mean really, how bad could a toy crisis be?
