I was surprised, even stunned, and then of course delighted with all the kind words you readers and viewers added as comments under my New Year’s Eve video message on Thursday night.
I read them while taking a day off at the coast, where it’s been raining pretty much nonstop since Thursday night. The weather didn’t stop me from venturing out on the bike, but it seemed unwise to continue as the wind got stronger and appeared to become a gale.
So I shot this very brief video and headed back under cover (better turn your sound down because of the wind noise on my phone’s microphone):
Rain or shine, though, I’m grateful for our life in Oregon. And to those of you who have sent me comments and Facebook messages the last two days, I was touched. Thanks very much. (hh)
