To those who celebrate the holiday, I hope your Christmas is shaping up as a merry one. Like a lot of other folks, we've had some glitches, mostly weather-related, at our house, but we've learned over the many years to be flexible. Looks like my son-in-law, won't arrive until Friday to join our daughter and their baby. We'll just put the calendar on hold a couple of days and pick up with the celebration when he arrives. There, that wasn't so hard, was it? (To tell the truth, we'd been wishing we had a little more time for preparation. Ask and you shall receive.)
That said, here's your loose thread. Comment at your own convenience and on your own schedule.
