The Wreath of Khan

It seems like most of the month of December is filled up with adding holiday decorations here and there (until Christmas Day in our house, anyway); will most of January be spent taking them down little by little? I suppose we could just leave ’em up until next year rolls around again — it always happens sooner than we think, anyway. I somehow suspect that our neighbors wouldn’t appreciate such an extension of the most wonderful time of the year, though. Bah, humbug.

David Banther kindly supplied Diana and me with a fancy wreath to hang by our front door. I’m not sure if it will attract carolers, vagabonds, or local wildlife, but it sure is a pretty thing. If only I could stop the ghost of Ricardo Montalbán from trying to steal it every time my back is turned. Last time I checked, he wasn’t in the lineup of apparitions who traditionally visit during any version of A Christmas Carol that I’ve ever seen.


Oh! And don’t forget: if you follow me on Instagram, you’ve got a chance at the iPad mini that I’ll be giving away on Christmas Day. Don’t know how to find me? It’s easier than boiling water if you just click on the following link:
