Merry Christmas, Everyone

Hello and Merry Christmas, Everyone,

It is the middle of December, and it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.  At least a Florida Christmas.  The weather was been mild, and as usual, everyone is out preparing for their family get-togethers and office parties.  We are no different.  Last weekend, I had several people from work with their spouses to our house for dinner.  Tessa was the perfect hostess, and the house was decked out.  Maybe even a little more than last year.  But I followed through with my duties, which included putting up the house Christmas lights.  Of course, this year I was doing it only 10 weeks after having brain surgery!  But it was a challenge that I was more than prepared for, and I completed the task without incident or injury.  I like to challenge myself, but to be honest, this was a process that I have done many times before.  I didn't try anything silly like standing on one foot next to the gutter drip edge or anything.  (Although I did tell Tessa that I was going to dance and sing "If I were a Rich Man" from Fiddler on the Roof.) But my balance hasn't been compromised by the surgery to any greater degree, and I was able to walk easily along the roof pitch.  (Unfortunately, I couldn't find the "pitch" for my singing. ;-)  Of course, old shingles and tired muscles were my greatest adversaries.  But I finished my job in less than two days, and the house looked beautiful for the party.[...]
