Merry Every Day!

Christmas for 2019 has come and gone.  Wow, that was quick.  I know that some folks enjoy an extended Christmas season.  Some based on their religious preferences enjoy the Christmas season on into the first week of January.  But not at our house.  The boss lady, who loves Christmas and enjoys every minute of preparing for the big day is completely done with it by the end of Christmas Day.  By 4:00 pm on the day after Christmas there was no sign of Christmas anywhere in our home.  The tree was disassembled and boxed, the decorations were all packed up, and all the furniture was returned to the original locations.  So, I guess that is the end of Christmas.  But does it really have to be?

Friends?  Really?

I must admit, I am not a big fan of the so-called social media, I think it is a mistake to use the word social as for too often it is anything but social.  Frequently it is filled with hate, rage, and anti-social commentary.
