part grinch

my feelings abt Xmas are complicated.  I'm not religious so that part of the holiday doesn't exist for me. & its commercialization can be repugnant.

but I do have pleasant memories of some holidays past.

already packd away is a box of Xmas "things." some are gifts. others from foreign travels. when I expect company I arrange them on the mantle of my fireplace.

other years this is the single item that comes out of storage.

Dad made the wreath with grapevines from the backyard on Winckles. Dug Funnell made the "joy."  for the past 2 decades I've put it in the window of the guest room.
