Well it’s done; the tree is naked underneath, the big black trashbag is full of torn, shredded and otherwise destroyed warpping paper, the ham (or turkey, if you roll like that) has been eaten, the presents have been played with, and now are finding their homes. I hope you all got what you wanted/needed. I know I did. I’ve now got plenty of reading to do (Thanks to Neil Gaiman), and some money to be spent at REI, which believe me, I can’t wait to spend. Nicole and I have plenty of things on our short (but not really) list of things to buy to be ready for camping and hiking season.
