Tweener Week

The time between Christmas and New Year's is sometimes called Tweener Week because it falls be"tween" the holidays! It is not to be confused with the term "tween" which refers to people who are ten, eleven or twelve years old and thereby too old to be considered just children, but still not yet old enough to be teenagers. Tweeners can be distinguished by their devotion to their king, Justin Bieber.



Not too much happening really. I saw Bucketman on the bus.



The UMass campus is a scene of silent serenity with the students gone for winter break.



With Christmas over, the Amherst/Pelham Boy Scouts dismantled their tree stand.



A scene from Raos Coffee Shop in Amherst.



A view out the window of the Amherst Starbucks.



We didn't have snow for Christmas, but Mother Nature soon obliged the day after, transforming the woodland path into downtown Northampton into an icy snow-way.



Arriving downtown, I saw our magical town made even more so.



With the snow piled high in the middle of the street.



The only remnant of summer's green was this pot leaf in the window of The Hemp Store.



Happy New Year everybody! I predict that 2011 is going to be a really cool year. If you want to follow me, better look up, because that is where I will be, rising towards the Big Time.

Tom, I don't know how you do it, walking everywhere or riding a bus. Even the floor of a bus is cold.
