    Eli looked great last night.  I'd say reports of his "tired arm" were greatly exaggerated.  

    Earlier in the day I saw a report on Andrew Luck who took over Peyton's QB position at the Colts.  Showed a clip of his after game presser and noted how he thanked everyone on the team which was - and still is - a habit that Petyton began.  They also showed a presser from Peyton at Denver doing just that.  

    I seem to recall your mentioning a local glass blower that you would buy ornaments (?) from during the holidays.  I find that art fascinating.

    Sounds cold and raw up thataways, so stay warm today, my friend.

      His shop is in an old general mercantile store in a tiny hamlet in the middle of nowhere in North Carolina.  The place is called Toecane.  You have to go to Loafer's Glory and turn left.  The town was a little railroad town and the fine old hotel built to accommodate passengers is still there and occupied.  When it ceased to be a rail hub, the down withered away.  Judson bought the old store, which still has floor to ceiling ladders that run on rails so the top shelves can be reached.  

      Here is a link to the artwork page of his web site.  

      I mentioned him in the diary I wrote as a letter to my wife.  Down near the bottom of the page.
