Good afternoon!  It was 52 here in Miami and will only get to the high 60's.  I've been in meetings all morning.

    It's 1:20am in Springfield, so I'm going to be the first Dec 4 post in this thread - then I'm off the bed.

    My question today is, how is Leslie going to top yesterday? Maybe an interview by the BBC? Then lunch with Jeff Bezos?

    It's chilly here. About 25 and windy. I'm glad I brought my toque.

    That's the problem with Springfield.  It's so flat, the wind really can blow.  I think the winter there felt colder than my winter spent in Missoula. 

    Is there any snow?  My parents live 3 1/2 hours south and said they were having flurries the other day.

    Howdy fellow Kindleteers!  Fuzzy decided she wanted out at 5 and at about the same time my dogs decided to bark at some phantom so here I am.

    At this very early hour it is dark and a cold 36 out.  I plan on going back to sleep soon and when I wake up again, it should be much brighter out and about 35 degrees warmer.

    Harvey, be sure to bundle up and drink your Ovaltine. I hear Annie has a secret message for the drinkers o Olvatine.

    Morning all,

    29 degrees and clear this morning, with a very pretty sunrise.

    Another restless night with weird dreams. These weren't the funny kind, they were the "wake up and I don't want to go back to sleep and start re-dreaming that dream" kind of dream. Sigh. That happen to anyone else?

    Harvey, I am not sure I can top my two mentions yesterday! Maybe my goal today will be to get some work done. LOL. Not too much of that happened yesterday.

    Oh, excellent. Dori, do you want to join me for the Larry King interview? I'm not sure I could hold my own alone with him.

    I knew the pickles would work. What about Debra Winger?

    The temperature is 34 degrees deep in the heart of Texas.

    There is just a touch of snow - maybe half an inch. Roads are very icy.

    I think "Winger" translated to "Wisconsin" as in I was moving to Wisconsin and not very happy about it!

    Good morning Kindle buddies, it is 50 and raining today. Supposed to drop to 32 tonight. I've had my first cup of coffee and made the drive to work. It is the perfect day to be home Kindling!

    Hope everyone has a good day,
    Linda

    Linda I wish you could be here to Kindle Koffee too. I like to make my own coffee pods because the ones that are made are not strong enough for me.
