    1. Thank you. Some aspects of winter are OK. I'm hoping we won't have many subzero days. A mild winter is tolerable. ;-)

  4. Merry Christmas Beth! I love the Santa ornament. It's funny but even now, decades afterwards, the reminder that the days will now be getting longer remind me that's what a senior bank executive said to me after her bank acquired the bank I worked for in a hostile takeover (as I was working with her through the transition).

    1. Interesting that it jogged this memory for you, Kris. The short days are so hard for me. Around the end of February it gets much easier. I know that's a long way off, but even small steps in that direction are a welcome change. ;-)

    2. Beth, I agree with you. February is the hardest month for me. I am glad it is the shortest.
