Went to the annual Christmas Stroll last night (aka Downtown Stroll, Holiday Stroll)…as expected, it was wonderful! Damn chilly, though – didn’t plan to spend more than 30 minutes or so, just a “token” appearance, so to speak, but it was such fun that I stayed for more than two hours. Had to buy a hat to cover my ears – brrrrrrr! But such good cheer, everywhere I turned! More later — off to a volleyball game for the kidlet right now.
