The turkey's brining, two bags of apples and one of potatoes await peeling. Many tons of stuffing and pie are just wisps of thought yet. But there's wine as far as the eye can see. We will eat like kings, the two of us. The house-building crew across the street started hammering at 7:30 AM today, just like every other day - framing is almost complete! I expect the painters or hardwood guys will be in there on Christmas morning. A pox on them and their's. Happy T-day to the rest of you.
