The year’s first holiday-vibe moment happened last night at the Smoke House, where Tatyana and I went after the 7pm Disney lot screening of The Last Jedi. Nice-smelling wreaths, soft amber lighting, twinkly Christmas lights, carols playing softly, friendly vibes.

French champagne received today from friends at Amazon…thanks!

Holiday greetings from Pete and Madelyn Hammond.

Tatyana and I have fallen in love with these little amber-tinted table lamps at Smoke House.
