So here's the question at hand . . . has everyone "de-decorated" yet??? Or are you still hanging on to those wonderful holiday decorations for sentimental reasons? Holiday decorating is always fun . . . the season is new, we're looking forward to visiting old friends, family celebrations in festive surroundings at home, exchanging gifts and wonderful dinners out.
But now, as they say, the worm has turned! It's over! The coldest month of the year has arrived, the tax man cometh and you have a first quarter colonoscopy to look forward to. And, oh yeah, you have to freeze your butt off and take all that "Crap" down outside. Hey wait! Didn't we just call that crap "Holiday Decorations"?
Perspective! . . . Weird Huh?

Well, That's a wrap!
Till Next week / be safe and I'll see you on the Turntable!
