It is snowing here on the ranch. I am determined to someday live where I can see palm trees daily, but today is not that day.

The most exciting news is the acquisition of a new vehicle for Son 2. Ok, not new. New to us. It's older than he is and is the highest-mileage vehicle on the place. It also came via a neighbor who is a mechanic and has worked on the vehicle for many years, so we figure it will make it to school and back. Most days.

We hopefully only need it for a year or two when Son 1 goes to college. After that, the old Suburban can retire to a part-time life as a hunting vehicle.

While we wait for the Huskers' bowl destination, all eyes are on the volleyball team as they begin their national title defense.
