'Tis the season!
I did something really daring the other night. I was coming home from a class in Sag Harbor and made the potentially disastrous decision when I neared the end of Rt 114to keep driving across Toilsome and down Buell Lane to Main Street - instead of turning left at Toilsome to wind my way along to Newtown Lane. For the past few months a left turn onto Main Street from Buell Lane would have been impossible and an attempt would have eventually resulted in a right hand turn and then a loop across the little bridge to James Lane and back around the green to get home. But - it is late in October and I thought it was worth a try. I passed MHT Church, drove by The Barefoot Contessa's house, and to my amazement and utter delight arrived at the stop sign where I could quickly ascertain that there was not a car in sight - in either direction. Whoopee! I turned left, drove all alone down toward Hook Mill, and drove into my driveway without passing more than 3 cars going in the other direction.
Sometimes, life is just great, isn't it?
