Photo du Jour: Collette in the Snow

Collette in the snow.

The snow melted overnight, but we have this memory. Happy New Year to all.

Update: I forgot to mention... January 1 is this old dog's birthday! She's 14 years old now - that's 98 in dog years. Talk about an old bitch...


  1. It's funny, you'd never think Collette was 14. In this picture, she looks more like 13, don't you think?


  2. Bonsoir Walt,

    Superbe, cette photo de cette chère Collette dont j'ai eu le plaisir de faire la connaissance en sept. 05 quand elle est montée en Normandie ! Elle n'a pas besoin de "lifting" ! Amitiés. Marie

  3. Ah, Walt, you are a godsend! You were writing this just for me, weren't you? The guilty gal who buys frozen pie crusts. I made my own at Thanksgiving, and I had a hard dome on top. It was so embarrassing, but I felt I almost should have gotten a Buckminster Fuller award for my structure.

    I will try again with your good advice (and my food processor) and maybe I'll succeed.

    All your photos are amazing. You should go into the pie and tart business!

    Thanks again!

  4. Ginny,
    I didn't know I could have been in the running for the Bucky Awards all those years ago... Maybe that's why I went to architecture school; inspired by pie crust! :)

  5. I am guilty, too. The New Year's quiche I made was in a store bought crust. I admire your persistence ... years to perfect the crust. I would have given up ages ago.


Tell me what you think!
