Winter Solstice - Dislike

If you have been a reader of theMangoTimes for any length of time, you know how much we love summer sunshine around here. I've blogged before about my favorite day of the year. So it goes without mention, that today being the winter solstice is my least favorite day of the year. Short, dark, and wintery cold…three of my least favorite things when it comes to enjoying life in California.


Looking on the plus side…every day get's longer and sunnier from here until June. I'm already planning on this year's "Longest Day of the Year" party. In the meantime, you will find me sitting next to the fire listening to Jimmy Buffett and Bob Marley… :)

Quietly making noise,


Andy Fletcher

Andy "Fletch" Fletcher has been married for the past 22 years. He and his wife Kendra are the proud parents of five sons and three daughters, all of whom keep them laughing and on their toes. During the day he can be found fixing people's teeth, but in his spare time you can find Fletch stretching out a pair of flip-flops, creating a new pizza recipe, playing the drums, or rescuing a piece of his tie-dye wardrobe from his wife's donation pile. You can find him online where he writes on his personal blog: theMangoTimes and cohosts with his wife on the podcast.
