Well, Christmas season 2016 isn’t quite completely gone yet, but it is almost out of the picture. In some ways I have felt like the Bubble Boy – I haven’t really been able to get out and about due to pain and to concerns about contagion (no danger to others just to me).
The lights of the Christmas season have delighted me more this year than in years past. Again, don’t ask me why. But I have tremendously enjoyed picking out and laying the little strands of light around the tree. Actually, to be honest I should specify that Deborah has done all the laying out of Christmas lights while I’ve acted as sidewalk superintendent. This works out slightly better for me because that way I can be there to physically intervene should anything appear to start to slide out of the way downhill or whatnot.

Well, you can’t tell it to look at the photo in the upper left corner of this page, but a crucial time was ticking down here when I was taking this photo. The “fat bulb” light string depicted here was about to bite the dust. But on the other hand, the white and gold strand of garland shown here was making its international debut.

Well, let me tell you a little bit about my Thanksgiving. First and foremost, I found that this Thanksgiving at least, I was the ranking officer in the Carr household. I know this because for the first time ever, the family thanksgiving was held here, even though it was a tremendous inconvenience to most members of the household to come here.
