Re: Are you ready for the big day?
Not quite as yet.... the latest I have ever been with all my Christmas
Today should be the last day... my wife and I are going to spend the
morning shopping for all the final *stuff*.
I am a traditionalist when it comes to Christmas. I did not have much of a
Christmas when I was growing up, so I see that I have one now that I can
I send cards to send I pick out and enjoy. I write a line or two in each
one for I like to take a minute or two to enjoy my memories of each person
the card goes to. More for me than anything else, I suppose. I do all the
decorating in the house each year and like it that way. This year (now that
we have a new vaulted ceiling) I purchased a 7 1/2 foot pre-wired tree with
clear lights... frosted limbs. All my wife's gifts are wrapped and under the
tree along with other members of the family that we actually purchase gifts
for ... some get cards and money. Special for the wife this year is the
mandolin she has been wanting ... soft case, extra strings and a tuner and
had a friend tune it before it went into the case and was wrapped.
I will also do quite a bit of holiday cooking, making desserts the next
two weeks and we will have friends over for dinner.
Last evening we went out to dinner and a concert. The Louisville Orchestra
was playing a special program at an old catholic church about 45 minutes
drive from us. Wonderful program of Christmas music ... was like being at
the Boston Pops with good old Author Fielder. The conductor had a wonderful
sense of humor in this presentation and the music. Should have hear his
hybrid of Bolero and Little Drummer Boy....
And so it goes.... the little kid is not very well hidden behind the big
one named Gene

I mailed my cards today. Nothing is wrapped, and no presents have been
mailed -- yet. I still have up the Halloween wreath with a black cat and
the word "Scat" on it. Every year time goes quicker, and I get slower. ;-)
