This Is My House....

...on December 16.

This is my daughter's house on December 16.

Any more questions as to why I refuse to move to Michigan?

What Tam Said

About relics( Brick and mortar stores.  I had a particular gift in mind but I needed to see it for real rather than online.  So I set off to outlets and malls.  Only to find that once nice collections are now reduced to a couple of this and that.  It's a death spiral - people order online so not as much is bought at a store. So they stop stocking.  But if they don't stock it you can no longer buy at a brick and morter store because they don't have it. But the store is declining because you can't buy stuff there.  Because they don't stock it because it's bought online.


But I got the tree up.

Sister Update

The good news - the doc feels she cleanly whacked the tumor out.  The bad news was that tests dropped my sister right in the middle for probability of the cancer returning.  So she opted for prophylactic chemo.  It's not been fun, to put it mildly.  In addition to bone ache, nausea, and baldness, she is covered with a miserable, itchy rash. Two more treatments to go.

This isn't half bad compared to her face.
