All things considered, we had a pretty Merry Christmas around here. News flash, Christmas was two weeks ago but the Russians really don't give up the ghost until this Sunday so I'm still within the statute of limitations. Presents were jammed beneath the Christmas tree and were it not for the boy the pickings would have been pretty slim. He went overboard.
Least I forget, the best present of all came by way of Riga from Vlad, Natasha, Masha and Dasha. We received a new Acer PC to replace our seven year old desktop. It was wheezing, grinding and generally in its death throes when the new one arrived. Talk about a great stocking stuffer! Happy Holidays!!!
