“They saw their injured country's woe;
The flaming town, the wasted field;
Then rushed to meet the insulting foe;
They took the spear, - but left the shield.”
You do like to make it difficult for everyone, don't you? ;)Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas to you and yours, FJ!

FJ,Merry Christmas!BTW, we have blue-white lights on our house this year -- for the first time.Got the blues since November. Heh.
VERY appropriate! Merry Christmas, AoW!
May the merry and bright aspects of Christmas -- if there are an left -- remain with you throughout the New year and beyond.~ FreeThinke
PS: I like all blue outdoor lights. My father thought they were depressing. I always thought they looked calm, soothing and reassuring -- especially after a snowfall.For whatever it may matter, I prefer smaller, subtler, more modest, intimate Christmas displays than the extravagant, highly competitive Amusement Park style seen today, but, Chacun a son gout. They will anyway, no matter what i may think. At least I've learned THAT much in 72 years.Not very impressive, is it? ;-sHave a good one, whatever it mayturn out to be.~ FT
Thank you, FT.And I look for and appreciate "Love" and "Grace" not only at Christmas time, but throughout the year.No, I am not a Christian any more, but I do still love and appreciate all the symbolism behind the rituals.And I'm with you when it comes to the public displays, as I also appreciate that "less" is sometimes "more".You're a very wise man, FT. You've got 17 years on me, and I respect that.Have a Happy New Year!
look for and appreciate "Love" and "Grace" not only at Christmas time, but throughout the year.AMEN to that!
