"But all along the Rockies you can feel it in the air, from Telluride to Boulder down below. The closest thing to heaven on this planet anywhere is a quiet Christmas morning in the Colorado snow.'' (Colorado Christmas)
Goin' home tomorrow with C for about 10 days. Just found myself missing everyone and everything Boulder and this seemed like an opportune time. The fact that I had to use or lose my vacation time at The Standard before 2006 also played a significant role in the decision. In the meantime, I leave you with two Hong Kong/Shenzhen moments of the last week.
Snapshot #1: A female teller's nameplate at my bank recently: Friendly Ho.
Snapshot #2: Conversation with a Hong Kong Canadian on a bus from Shenzhen to Hong Kong.
Me: "Yeah, I live and work in Hong Kong but I also rent a small apartment in Shenzhen."
Him: "Oh! You have a 'second wife' in Shenzhen? You're so lucky!"
Me: "Um, no. No 'first wife' in Hong Kong, either. I'm too old and tired for that stuff."

Wishing you Merry Christmas in Boulder with C!!
 
Thanks Tim and Anonymous! Merry merry, happpy happy to you also. And Tim, yes, Jackyll it was. Mercifully I'd purged it from the memory banks but sometimes it's better to face your fears.
 
About this quiet Christmas snow here in Boulder... Umm, it's about 67 degrees, brilliant blue sky, and the number of runners and bicyclists heading by the house far outnumber the kids in snowsuits dragging saucer sleds. Shorts and flipflops in December. Haddy Grimble, Justin!
