Paper's buoyant, into the horse tank. Viola, bottoms up!"
I hear ya, Gloria, and good luck! I think I lost my first husband to the post Christmas-unwwrap. For days after the Yule-y holiday, I sifted through the scattered foils and other such spent Christmas present trim, but, sadly, I came up short: No "Annoying Dave" (<--That was my secret pet name for him.) to be had. I ended up rolling up "everything" littering the floor under the tree, and setting it out for the garbage pick-up.
"Funny how that long, tied-up wad of old papers resembles a rolled carpet with a body in it," joked one of the muscle-headed trashmen as he hoisted the dead-weighty load into the truck dumpster before heading off to the landfill.
Happy New Year 2012
I also hope you had a delightful Christmas day.
I hope you had a wonderful Christmas
hugs to you and Mrs. Jim and KP and all the family
I will be thinking of you during your surgery and recovery and I know you'll come through with flying colors
Sorry you need surgery, but hope it gets you feeling better soon. You will be in my thoughts, Jim.
I have been off line in Christmas, but I sincerely do hope that your back surgery went well.
I am praying for you this very moment.
Hope you are able to be celebrating New Year's Eve with your loved ones.
