It's cold and rainy and altogether miserable today, and I am in Day Three of a migraine, the kind of headache that feels as if someone has driven a knitting needle into my right eye, and is now trying to push it through the back of my skull. Not much writing today. Instead, photos, courtesy of the amazing Steve Litwin (who is the most dedicated protector of our family heritage that I know -- if you haven't thanked the Lord for Steve, you need to, today):
