'Tis the season . . . ? Yes, I suppose it is, our first card arrived today. And, on the decorating front, my neighbors are way ahead of me, as usual :-? although, they haven't yet added the Santa figure which perches up in the tree with these howling hunting hounds beneath. It's a cute display, I just thank my lucky stars that they haven't thought (yet) to add sound effects Meanwhile, in my front yard, (Gee, I wish our grass was as nice as theirs :-| ) the Maple is at peak and the obligatory pansy. 8) My pumpkins and Mums are still on display, I guess I'd better get with the program, huh?
