We’ve lived here for ten years now, which makes this our eleventh Christmas in this house. It’s seven a.m. Ten years ago I’d have been awake for two hours already. Well, I’ve been awake for nearly that this morning. The difference is ten years ago I’d have been awake since 5 after having gone to bed at 2 or 3 after seeing Santa on his way. The lights are on in the living room of a house down the street where there are still small boys on the premises. Our large boys are still asleep. As is their mother. And our house guest. And his dog. So it’s just me and you. Whispering--->Merry Christmas!
Ten a.m. Everybody awake. Don’t have to whisper anymore. MERRY CHRISTMAS! From Lance, the blonde, Ken, Oliver, Uncle Merlin, and Art the Wonder Dog!
