|A snowbound winter is great when you're insulated and warm inside, everything fresh and a tingle in the air... 'logs that pop and spit'
that's exactly what they do.
One of the friends looks like he's got the script for the next Grumpy Old Men movie.
And the other with his songs of Experience I can relate to very well as I drink my scotch and wry.

two old friends talking

|Good winter mustings here for you. May we all survive winter cause it has been so frigid a winter so far with more snows than last year and seems so long, but I suppose spring is just around the corner too.I left that old blowing pine tree, that was leaning over so much, at the trailer where I moved from. I don't miss it at all though cause Tom died under it. So sad, but there is a pine tree tall and straight outside the front door of this apartment house as a reminder always too.|

|So vivid, I'm sitting there. I feel the cold. I hear the wind-even the plaintive dog's cry. I taste the gin and scotch. My hands are cold. I'm going to turn up the heat. That log fire would be nice right now.|

|oh my goodness...that was catchy!! In a very good way to intrigue of course! "one, sipping gin, plans to write a play
about two aging writers who
challenge their years and friendship
in loving the same woman;"
and the story unfolds...at least I hope to know more about these 2 dashing gents!! Oh Yes Wonderful Poem Gene :)

|Ooh...the dog cries. I love this poem. It sounds so cozy, but too much and I'd have cabin fever also. Great write. Liz|

|Marvelous. Listening in on conversation and drinking is always interesting, and in these lines new discoveries of how two plot to undo the other. Let me know when the play opens and the drinks are ready. - Bill|

|this is a great saga in poetic form Gene -- how creative of you -- your rendering is one terrific canvas -- I was there with a glass of wine watching the fireplace and our woman -- the latter, very carefully -- take the high road and live in peace and great joy my friend -- JMW|

|this is such a little glimpse of two stories that it could go many ways...but with the intro “night air crisp and biting, the pines bending under a two-day accumulation of snow; inside the cabin, logs pop and spit” I lean towards stress building, especially with the conversation drawing the lines of deceit...but then again I could be completely out to lunch...Regardless entertaining read Gene.|
