It's snowing tonight in New Hampshire. None of the major snowfalls of the past few weeks have come this far north. Snow-lovers are very happy tonight.

We had dinner last night with Gina and Jarrett Krosoczka at the Restaurant at L.A. Burdick Chocolates in Walpole, NH. Here they are in the chocolate shop. The restaurant is a wonderful place to spend time with friends, and the chocolates are incredible. Tomie sent several gift boxes of chocolate penguins to his publisher, PENGUIN Young Readers Group, for Valentine's Day.
Ken Burns, part owner of the restaurant, his wife Julie, and their daughter Olivia, were also at the restaurant and we were able to talk with them for a few minutes. Olivia is reading the "26 Fairmount Avenue" books.
We don't see G and Jarrett enough!
