A most wonderful time of the year

Here in the good ‘ol United States, I wish we did not start to think of Christmas until after Thanksgiving.  Such is not the case.  The [much bemoaned] commercialization of the Season often starts before Halloween.  I view this as nothing more than continued evidence of the human condition, a condition that has been seen even in ancient times.

Perhaps it is just my getting older, but being with family is becoming more important to me.  This is not to say that I don’t enjoy getting things that I need, but it is the extra things that probably fall into the ‘Want’ category that are being curtailed [maybe, … now I just had to throw that qualifier in there].

That said, I plan on celebrating Christmas in a semi-gaudy manner.

Stay happy,

A perspective on life and cycling in the Ozarks. I started serious cycling in 2008, after seeing my wife be on the bike for a few years. We have biked many places and hope to continue. I am no where near being a real good cyclist, but I have fun trying to improve. Who am I kidding? Me? Improve??
