Thursday Arch Series

Arch 2010-12-19  1

The year winds down and the quiet of the holiday season settles on amazingly snowless St. Louis. Our office is in theory open to mid-afternoon today but I don't think many people will be in except me and the receptionist. Even I won't stay all day.

It's going to be a good weekend. We've agreed that none of us will spend more than a nominal amount of money on stuff. (See the brilliant link on our colleague Wayne's CDPB in Vancouver.) My son Andy, of Chicago Flair fame, will be driving down tomorrow with his delightful S.O., Claire. Dinner at our house tomorrow night with this crew and daughter Emily while son-in-law and chef extraordinaire Brian finishes a visit with his family in Houston. Even bigger and better culinary events on Christmas itself, more about which later. NYC on Sunday!

Fantastic photo. I can send you some snow.

Not spending much money but made most of my presents this year. Much more fun but equal stress to get everything ready on time.

Like the effect on this photo. Sounds like good food is on the way! Wishing you a joyful Christmas!

It never hurts to re-evaluate our relationship to 'stuff' from time to time.

Thanks Bob, Happy Holidays!
