Thanks for this post, Dana. For me, Martha' Vineyard sounds even better in the winter than in the summer. I like the fact that there are fewer people around, and there are more community-based activities to enjoy. As for my perfect winter weekend getaway, just give me a comfy chair by a blazing fire, a good book and some hot tea, and I would be happy as a Martha's Vineyard quahog all weekend!

Thank you, SandyLA. We lost Diamond in 2012 (her picture is my avatar). The dog we just lost was Gia, a purebred Dalmatian who was Diamond's best friend -- we adopted them from a Dal rescue at the same time. Our terrier mix Ruby is the only one left now, and hopefully she will stay healthy for a good long while. Gia overcame several health issues in the last few months, but the cancer was too aggressive and she was already debilitated. She did seem happy and comfortable until the past week, and we did not want her to have to suffer through an incurable cancer.

Thanks for the link, Coop! I've been preoccupied for the past few months with one of our dogs (we had to let her go due to cancer on Tuesday), so I haven't been able to keep up with the blogs as well as I'd like. The photo makes me want to grab a snow shovel and start digging (I love shoveling snow, weird as that sounds!).

I wonder what the DH looks like in the snow? Charming, I'll bet! Read Susan Branch's post about the blizzard on Martha's Vineyard -- she makes it sound like a blessed event, and her photos of the town blanketed in snow are just gorgeous:

I'm almost regretting that we live too far south to have gotten any of that snow!

Looking forward to that -- I'm ready to curl up by the fireplace with a cup of tea and my computer for a cozy evening of perusing!

How about adding on a turkey eating contest? Now that would require quite a bit of skill! And invite the Florida sharks to participate -- although I think I know who would win!

Here is one northern lake where the contest is still happening:

Definitely not on my bucket list!

It looks like Austin is the place to be for a frightfully delightful Halloween (and that dance is truly horrifying!):

This used to happen for Halloween in Lake Coeur d'Alene (although I couldn't find any recent mention of this contest):

Brrrr! Not my idea of a fun Halloween activity, but it certainly is different!

Happy Halloween, everyone!
