Well, this year had a theme, and for me it was a "Tim Taylor" or… - Paint It Black
Living the American dream one heartbreaking piece at a time
Well, this year had a theme, and for me it was a "Tim Taylor" or "Home Improvement" Christmas. I got tools, tools, socks, tools, a tie and more tools. I think my father has been planning this flood of handy-man implements for a while... one does not just "spontaneously" amass drill-bit kits, tarplins, powertools, tape measures and socket sets.

Saturday we go to see my cousin Priscilla. Currently she's staying at my uncle's house in Minneapolis, she's not in good enough shape to make the trip home to Northern Minnesota. I talked to her for about ten minutes on the phone today and she sounds great. She's very excited to be out of the hospital. After spending two straight months I can understand her pleasure at finally being "on the outside."

My dad loved his neon sign and my grandfather was brought to tears(!!!) by the ship-in-a-bottle that I got for him. I took a few pictures and I hope to share them via my gallery when I get home.

I got a great deal more than I expected and far more than I deserved this Christmas -- some of which I haven't written about yet, some of which is too personal to share beyond a small circle. May everyone else have a Christmas just as filled with hope and joy.
