    *shuffles in through the snow, closing the cold and wind out behind him and moving to the fire place*

    Ugh....long morning, don't ask.

    *gets the fire blazing and moves back to the counter*

    So....good Holiday everyone? I had yesterday off.

    *starts the coffee and hot water for tea*

    Good luck out there everyone.

    *sneaks in through the back door, hangs his snow covered cloak on a hook and pours some tea*
    It's official. It's wintery out there.

    *rests himself on a bench next to the fire*
    How is everyone this fine cold day? I myself am a bit sleepy. I have a cat who appears to be on a mission to keep me up each and every night as of late. He's lucky he's cute and lovable, otherwise he'd be spending new years out in the yard in a snow drift.

    *notices the new face surrounded by snowy hair*
    Welcome stranger. You really should get a hat. That would solve that snow-hair problem in a snap. I'm sure there's a tailor lurking about who could craft you one if you asked nicely.

    What brings you to Catskills on this fine day?

    *nods to Black Sun*

    Good day to you neighbor. I was wondering if we could work out some deal where you prevent the snow from moving farther east, just keep it there in your area. It always seems to hit you first so you are in prime position to help me out. I could compensate you handsomely, say some kitty sitting?

    *moves his attention to the young lady who has entered the tavern*

    Good morning m'lady.

    *smiles softly in return"

    Coca you say? I think I can accommodate that request. Why don't you have a seat by the fire *motions to the sofa* and I'll bring it over when it is done.

    *sits on the sofa and stretches out*

    You know...I just so happen to have peppermint sticks as they have been requested by other visitors so you are in luck.

    *opens a drawer under the counter and retrieves one*

    *pours the coca and puts the cup on a plate, sets the peppermint stick beside the cup*

    Just about ready...

    *walks it over to where she is seated by the fire, setting it on the coffee table*

    There you are m'lady.

    *takes a seat across from her and warms his hands on the fire*

    I do love a good flame.

    Keep the snow? Oh, sorry friend. I have family out your way and they would so hate to miss out on the white stuff if I were to keep it. I believe you have a shipment headed your way now actually. Passed by here less than an hour ago, looked to be heading your direction.

    *notices the woman sprawled out on the sofa*

    Glad to see you found a comfy spot.


    *eyes Podolak and his new friend*
    Is there something you two would like to tell us?

    *allows a slight laugh out as he is pulled to the spot on the sofa next to her*

    Well it isn't every day that I snuggle up with patrons you know! Though there is a comfortable looking meer who comes in now and then. Who doesn't want to warm themselves on something so furry?

    *frowns at Black Sun*

    I hear you are sending it our way and why do I get the distinct impression you added a little something to it?

    We know all about you types on that side of the fence, you and your giant lake adding a bit more to the mix than we'd prefer to get. Oh yes indeed. At least it is soft and fluffy.

    *rests his arm on her shoulder*

    Snow is nice at times but in smaller quantities. The blizzards of late have been trying to the point of making even the heartiest of us consider a short trip south.

    Something to tell them? Um...

    Sure! This is a friend of mine, Claudia.

    *makes the introductions*

    Claudia, Black Sun

    Black Sun, Claudia.

    Claudia is a guard at Aegis. Black Sun is the leader of the Senior Citizens of Catskills. Probably a place I belong actually.

    *whispers to Claudia* They have all long forgotten about my evil deeds of old.

    How is SC*C? We're a dying breed I'm afraid. (no pun intended) Most of the guild has migrated off to Siege. Just a few members still visit cats on a semi regular basis. I've often thought about recruiting new members, but the type of folks I feel comfortable with are generally old timers who are pretty well settled in guilds of their own. Although Podolak, if you're interested in joining, just say the word. You'd fit in just fine.

    More snow you say? Black Sun I think we might want to move this gal up our way and see if she sings the same tune don't you think?

    *chuckles a bit*

    I don't think I'd do well for the Senior Citizens reputation.

    Relocating this time of year can be a pain. I'll just send the snow your way.

    Yuh...it is convenient that the Erie Canal connects our cities. Though I must say your city does a much better job of keeping it up.

    No...you haven't missed much besides Black Sun trafficking snow.

    *points to the window*

    When your eyes adjust and you have your wits more about you go to the window to see a splendid wintry storm. We may even get snowed in if this keeps up.

    *chuckles at Black Sun*

    You are lucky our weather patterns don't generally travel from east to west!

    Well lucky for you cookies we have in abundance, especially so soon after Christmas.

    *makes the coca and adds several cookies to the plate*

    Hmm...that'll do.

    *sets the plate down in front of her*

    Lets get this fire going a touch better shall we?

    *grabs the poker and stokes the coals and remnants of the log, adds several logs and watches as the flames lick around them*

    Well the important thing to do is stay warm and hydrated. Fortunately we have plenty of logs for the fire and a tavern without plenty to drink is well...no tavern at all.

    I have several blankets and even a few cots to accommodate overnight visits. Though truthfully that doesn't happen too often.

    Oh, I think I'm pretty well set for now. Hot tea is for the morning. Generally by this time of day (and always in this weather) it has since turned to iced tea and is perfect for afternoon sipping.

    Um...lass...you are offering to do the cooking here? Goodness...do you know what you are signing yourself up for? We haven't had an actual cook in ages and everyone has been getting by on my paltry attempts. I'd say an offer like that most certainly deserves a bit of cuddling.

    *retrieves a cozy blanket and wraps it around her. Slips next to her wrapping his arms around*

    Now if I could just find someone good with a broom...

    Well I have never know much about that seasoning thing and throwing onions on the skillet hasn't happened recently so you are already doing better.

    This dough kneading business is almost hypnotic. *watches the woman work*

    Very interesting...

    *is lost in his gaze as someone else does his work for him (what a productive day ha!)*

    *her muscles tensing and relaxing as her hands work the dough into a ball and then flattening it out again*

    Can you make me a bit of that steak a little rare? By a little rare I mean make sure it's stopped mooing and warm most of the way through. Then just toss it on a plate.

    Me? Oh I don't think so. I'm a confirmed bachelor, I wouldn't give up my glamorous lifestyle for just one woman.... unless that woman was Scarlett Johansson.

    Unfortunately she's already taken, so I suppose I'm doomed to this hedonistic lifestyle that I've grown somewhat accustomed to.
