I finally finished my Christmas puzzle, 15 days after Christmas. I started it before Thanksgiving. I think I was a little ambitious thinking I could work on a puzzle with all the other Christmas stuff going on.

New Year’s Parties

My friend David had a Nü Year’s Party. He still had his “tree” up. It’s a manaquin in a camouflage hunting outfit covered in large LED lights. On New Year’s Day last weekend I was invited to three parties. None of them still had their trees up. It was fun to drive around the city seeing all the snow from our New Year’s Eve snowstorm we had this year.
