Why is picking out a Christmas tree so hard? I can remember growing up my parents lugging us around as we spent all night or day searching for THE perfect tree. Nothings changed apparently now that we've moved to Georgia. It's our first time to have a tree since coming here. Four year with out the ole' Tannenbaum was so sad. We cruised three locations and settled on Home Depot. A 7 footer. Man, loving the prices out here compared to Cali!

No doubt about it, retirement does give me more time to do some things, including looking through the Christmas collections. It also has brought me to the conclusion that I must stop buying cards or get a name stamp with my signature. The cost of stamps would provide me enough change to buy a really nice bottle of wine. So if I've sent you a card pretend you are sitting in front of a beautiful fireplace with a burning yule log and sipping some of that bottle.

Today while walking the dog I discovered a horrible scene! There lying practically in the street was a Santa helper, with more helpers in the yard. It looked like scouts sent by Old St. Nick checking on the neighborhood kids and after realizing what they had to report, were utterly deflated.

This is just unreal to me. In Livermore during the Winter we would see $400 electric/gas bills. With Christmas lights, lots of company and cooking we could even see a $600 bill. This house is double the size and the coldest month in the house so far and we have a $128 electric/gas bill? Unbelievable but I'm very happy! Those windows are paying off!

Ending our Friday night at the Garden Lights and halfway through our visit with Yolanda. Today it's time for goodbyes so we're up and out to take Landa to the airport. Time flew and now she is flying back to her husband Steve and son Ryan, who were nice to spare and share her for a few days. Landa wasn't impressed with the stairs in and around our home and since she, Steve and Ryan all have some type of knee problems, it isn't promising that there will be a visit by the entire Maciorski family in the near future. :-(
