Well, between now and then-then being escape Monday to Florida for 10 days-

My wife Theresa is graduating from UW-Madison-with honors-

we need to clean the house, do laundry, pay bills, get the food ready,

go to the graduation breakfast and commencement, throw her party,

pack for vacation, do Xmas shopping and send the cards out,

get Bear the wonderDachshund farmed out,

and then:

DIG OUT FROM THE SECOND STORM ON SUNDAY,

and get to the airport 3 PM Monday afternoon.

Oooookay.

Deck the halls.

Deck the darn halls.

My back is already killing me.

But I am still smiling, a slighty frozen smile.

Let a shovel be your umbrella!

Congrats to Theresa on her graduation.  What's her specialty.

Seems you have the best idea.  Put the shovels in the garage and fly away to Florida!

BUT, not until you get the driveway cleaned out so you can get to the airport.

Erby,

She graduated with a BS in Interior  Design, and I will pass along the best wishes!

And YES-I did have to clear the driveway before we went to the airport-take care and have a great holiday.
