Taking a break from de-constructing Christmas. Got the tree un-decorated yesterday, today will get hubby help me to take boxes down from the attic (actually I don't have an attic, but rather a two-story garage on the back of our property, we call the upstairs the attic) to get the rest packed away. Should be done by tomorrow, or at least mostly. Years ago I got tired of putting up lights in acceptable weather, then having to take them down in temps well below freezing, and gloves make the job difficult, then they're too stiff to store yet, so had to be brought in and left in the kitchen to warm, so that they'd be flexible enough to coil and store. Ugh! Gave up on exterior lights completely. SO now it's relatively simple.

Having grown up a redhead, I learned early on that men and boys love red hair. And I hated it like most girls do. I use to scream at my mother that it was all her fault. She married a redhead. My father had a headful of carrot top red hair. My second husband told me one day that the reason he fell in love with me was because of my red hair. When I started going grey, I couldn't wait for it all to come in. Now it is S&P. Just wish it would go all white. Only one child had red hair when she was born. It fell out and the blonde came in.

Thank you. They're taking a tumor out of his neck, just below his left ear. They biopsied & said no cancer showed up but they will know more when they open him up. Thank you for your concern.
