I hate Christmas. Can't have a real tree because the girls are allergenic to the pine needles. So we have a fake tree and the cats love it. They climb into it at night and their weight bends the branches down. No stupid decorations for this old grouch.
I lost my Christmas spirit many moons ago. I can't hardly wait for it to be over and done with. Also my wife was born on Christmas day. But we don't buy for each other anymore. But I will sneak something for her every year.
Somehow the garland around the door just doesn't work for me but a really nice effort - certainly would get first place in Soap Lake and a picture with you and Melissa in the Grant Co. Journal (page 3 not the front page.)
