Abby and I put up our Christmas tree today. It’s an arduous task, but we made the best of it. Most of it is doable by me alone, but it was particularly nice to have Abby feed me some extra-long strands of garland. Afterwards, we were both dizzy from going around and around the tree.

I learned to decorate Christmas trees from my mom, and I do it well.

The kids (Chele and Tom and their son, our grandson Paul) are coming for Christmas.

Abby and I talked about Christmas music, and what were our favorites. One of my favorites is the Mannheim Steamroller version of Stille Nacht. I find it haunting and even sad…

As always, i deliver the goods: a spectacular Christmas tree.
