Merry/Happy Christmas

Hi there… Hope you have, all things considered, a good holiday season. Not here to argue about holidays, the economy, etc, just to wish you all the best that the Season can offer, by bringing out the best in people…

We have tried to do more holiday like things, to offset the heaviness of the pandemic, strife in politics, and all the dark of this year… Be baked cookies, like we haven’t in 20 years.

Homemade Cookies!

We have played more music, to lighten the season.

We have tried to be more kind, to all around us….

… And so, it begins…

Morning, kids… I’m realizing, again, that, from this point, Labor Day in the USA, that, we are on a downhill slide, so to speak, until January 5th, or so. Summer is winding down, and modding into cooler, darker weather. We’re ramping up for holidays, events, changes, and so many speeding days. We’re getting ready for autumn- a lovely time of year in the midwest, though, I prefer summer- then, Halloween. A BIG holiday for my family. Launch from that into the Thanksgiving season, again, here in the U.S. And then, Yule, Christmas, Solstice, and all the other holidays… The glide into New Years, and then… Quiet and cold…

So, hold onto your whatever, and, here we go!!!

Made it!

Well, Valentine’s Day is past. My lovely wife worked 12 hour days for a week, previous, and, 13 hours on the day. It isn’t all roses and candy behind the scenes, but it’s part of the job. Love was spread all around. Hearts were shared, and warmed. Hopefully, the feeling will continue for a while.
Valentine’s day…. It’s not just a calendar spot, but, like old Scrooge St, something to kept all year long…

We do…
