New Coat...

Since we've lived here I have been surviving the winters with my Seattle winter coat. A coat whose best use is that of keeping out the rain, not the balmy -40 we can get here occasionally.

Fabulous Babe got herself a new Parka last year. Since it's been well over 5 years since I got one we had decided that this year it was my turn: My new coat.

Already it's a thousand times better. I believe it was Amelia Earhart that once wrote about being so excited about a new leather jacket that she slept in it. I well understand the feeling.

I felt odd transferring all of my gear to the new coat but my old friend will stay in the closet a few more years. No trips to Goodwill just yet.
