    It's dangerous to have any skin exposed for long periods with the temperature and wind chill we'll have tomight

    It's a long drive for me. Instead of freezing my anatomy in Nashville I think I'll enjoy the warmth of my living room in spring hill. Have fun, I'll see you Wednesday.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
