For those of you who asked, the East Texas Christmas saga has just been posted on my blog texknitter.blogspot.com. complete with more pics from the weekend. For those of you who just don't care, you probably shouldn't anyway and I probably wouldn't blame you if you didn't.
And Mike.... the Algonquin, with the exception of just a few, embraced me dearly. There is one in particular that you know literally charms the pants off me!
All I know is my accent was a heck of a lot thicker when I returned.
Happy New Year y'all.
