I’m reading Caroline Alexander’s great book on the Endurance expedition and I keep flipping to this picture of second officer Tom Crean with puppiiiieees. (Photo by Frank Hurley.)

Remembered this bit from Grace Paley’s “Friends" today. Auld lang syne, motherfuckers.
Here at my grandfather’s in Indiana. Except with more dusk, more snow, more dogs.
Where did you get your coat, Pam Mitford?

I was batty about the Alvin and the Chipmunks Christmas album as a kid and played it all through December. Once I couldn’t find it with the other records and asked my mom where it went. She had no idea. I found it later that day by standing on one of the lower shelves of the hall closet where we kept hats & gloves (Wisconsin!) and reaching up to the upper shelves and feeling around. It was on the very top shelf. I remember returning to the living room and announcing “I FOUND IT” and thinking everyone would be as happy and relieved as I was that it’d been located.
