FLAMES ON THE PLAZA

Warm flames still attract visitors
to Station Plaza on chilly days
in downtown Kirkwood.

MY MEYER LEMONS ARE 
RIPE AND READY

Just in time for Christmas.

And to think
I didn't have time to get
Christmas gifts for
my friends.

Same thing happened last year.

Love my Meyer Lemon tree.

POINSETTIA

The "flower of Christmas."

Introduced from Mexico, it is widely 
propagated for indoor use during
the holidays.   

The bright red bracts are often
mistaken for flower petals,
but are actually leaves.

Despite its earlier reputation,
no part of the poinsettia is poisonous.

THE SMELL OF 
FRESH BAKED COOKIES

Visited Joy Stinger's house yesterday.
Picking up jars of her fall crop
raw honey for holiday gift giving.

As I entered her kitchen, 
the unmistakable aroma of 
fresh baked cookies filled the air.

She grabbed a still warm 
chocolate cookie, and said
"open wide."

What a treat.

What great timing to visit the 
Stinger household.


Thanks, Joy.

79th ROGUE UNDERGROUND DINING

23 lucky "first respondents" attended
the 79th Rogue event last evening,
and were treated to a decadent
"7 Deadly Sins" themed menu.

Lots of butter, and more than
one dish smothered in cream
and foie gras.

OMG.

Perfectly paired with the 
themed decadent beverage.
For the holidays.

ST. LOUIS GINGERBREAD ARCH

Gingerbread houses are a traditional
Christmas time favorite.

The Chase Park Plaza hotel

featuring a 6-foot high St. Louis arch
and the surrounding neighborhood

Stop by and see this gingerbread
