Thanksgiving is over and the hustle and bustle of the Christmas holiday begins. Except for I donít get to hustle and bustle this year. I hope that Santaís helpers put up at least one of my nativity scenes and my tree while I am in the hospital. Four days to go until surgery. I love to decorate for Christmas!
I have my hybrid cat series on hold. In fact, after receiving an email from a very knowledgeable person, I must begin again.

I made a mistake, made an error, oversight, blunder, and I could get much more colorful but I think I better not.
