    Tinsel.....lol

    One strand at a time, perfectly hung vertically, allowing it to move and shimmer in the light.

    Fun times......

    I don't really get into Christmas. To me it's just my wife's Birthday. That's enough for me to celebrate. I'm not into gift giving. I'll get her something for her Birthday. But that's the end of it.

    If it was my way I wouldn't even put up a shitty tree. Just leave everything the way it is. Don't need all that other crap.

    Save your money, I'm not really a beer drinker.

    Ok, Old Man. I'll leave you to it. You could have at least pretended being as it won't happen anyway! ;)

    OMJ needs about 5 shots of tequila, followed by 3 or 4 bong hits....
    Then 2 cups of coffee and some skinny jeans, to go with his skinny water, and a red puffy jacket, to go with his now red puffy eyes....
    Might make Christmas tolerable for him.

    I'm really a mild manner kind of guy. I used to drink like a fish. I got a bottle of Yukon Jack and a bottle of Jim beam. Both pints. Got them over 3 years ago, still full. I find it no fun to drink alone. I can't even get a slight buzz by my lonesome. I bought a 4 pack of 16 oz Miller beer. It took me over a year to drink 3 of them. I think I threw the last one away when we moved this spring.

    I have an amazing collection of fishing shirts
    I've learned that anyone wearing a Xmas sweater out in public is pretty much guaranteed to be friendly.

    Struck up a nice conversation at the eye doctor yesterday with a lovely lady who was wearing a fun holiday sweater. I learned a lot. She loves Xmas. Her house is currently a mess right now with decorations but she's getting organized cause her grandkids are coming soon to visit from Minnesota. She's likes a fresh snow, warm tea, and classic carols. We chatted for about 15 minutes and pretty much left best friends.

    Test my theory. Meanwhile, I'm stocking up on my sweater collection.

    Way to go Jo! (based upon the Matt Liar thread you initiated, I was going to say "way to go girl!" but thought that might be misconstrued...... ) ;-) That was a very nice act on your part.
