I went out and got the mail and found it snowing, just a little, like snow sprinkles.  It's December already and shoppers are in a frenzy. This year, more than any other, I am NOT doing the shop-til-you-drop thing, buying trinkets and goblets and niknaks, O My, for family, and friends, and acquaintences.  (Knowing full well, I will see all your purchases given in the “spirit of Christmas,” at every yard sale I go to this spring and summer.  For a buck!)
