A month of scarves: New Year’s Day

Alice's scarfTechnically this is not part of a month of scarves because it is January 1, and therefore no longer December. But today we scatter the ashes of Alice and Mark, my in-laws, near the home where Mark grew up in Montecito in Santa Barbara County, and I thought it was fitting to wear one of Alice’s scarves for the occasion. They were my stand-in parents after both of mine died, and now Dave and I are both orphans (though at age 52, I don’t know if that’s an accurate term to describe us).

Rest in peace, Mark R. Peattie and Alice June Richmond Peattie. You were very loved.
