Christmas Cards: Love 'Em or Leave 'Em?
I found my 10-year old horse Santa hat while looking for John's stall stocking yesterday. So I tried to get a good photo of him wearing it, while not being at all sure I had the hat on right-side forward. He didn't seem to care. He was in what I might call a grinchy mood: he had a full week off again, which I really don't like. But our weather was ghastly so the barn trips were just not advisable, Monday through Friday.
We rode out into the woods and had a lovely time. The temperature had climbed into the teens, and the sun was full out. We startled grouse and herded deer, and John took quite an interest in the deer tracks along the trail:
Lisa was able to come with me and Brandy was in fine fettle too, quite frisky:
I had thought of making John in his cap into a Christmas card but I think I have left it too late. Or maybe I have a head start on next year??
My feeling about Christmas cards or holiday cards is rather so-so. They are a lot of trouble and expense, but they are nice to get; it's neat to see a photo of friends and family we don't otherwise see. But for the past few years I have found it increasingly hard to get up the 'spirit' for card sending.
What about you? Love 'em, or leave 'em go?
At least John's stocking is hung on his stall with care, in the hope that King Peppermint soon will be there.
