Hope everyone has a great Christmas...

...or any other holiday you may be celebrating at this time. Whether Christian, Jewish, Pagan, agnostic, atheist, etc, I wish you the best.

I'm happy to say my wife(SandyG) is doing better; her pain is pretty well gone, and the swelling is hard to see if you are not looking for it. My tendinitis hasn't let up, but that doesn't matter to me as much.

This is a picture of our little tree we have been using the last few years; nothing special, but it works.



In case you're wondering about the funny looking star, it is homemade. Back when we
had only been married about a year, our top ornament broke. My wife cut out a star from a piece of cardboard, wrapped it in foil, and had me put it on top (that was back when we still got tall real trees.) It has become a tradition here after 30+ years, so we still use it.

I'm not big on Christmas music, so my playlist is looking as usual.

I like your little tree and love the fact that you have kept the cardboard/foil star a tradition all these years.

Have a wonderful Christmas!

I am currently listening to (copy & paste): Third Christmas Mass as sung by the Monk's Choir of the Benedictine Abbey of St. Martin, Beuron.

Good list, as usual, Bob...
And a very nice tree to boot.

Around our house with ALL the s**t that hit every fan all at once, we've been singing the song from the SOUTH PARK Christmas show:
"Christmas Time in Hell"...LMAO!

Not as "hip" as Tommy Boyce's song": WHERE THE ACTION IS, but more in keeping with the situation...!

Hope you all had a VERY Merry Christmas!

OH my friggin Gawd we have the exact same Santa. Except I put mine on the top of the tree. How odd is that? Is this a sign? *laugh*
Happy New year Bob.
