It was the Saturday before Christmas

… and the mice were stirring as though their little lives depended on it. One would think that people had been saving up all year for this season, for the chance to spend a buttload of money in a very short time. The city is full to bursting, dozens if not hundreds of buses have brought tourists and shoppers from all over southern Germany, Switzerland and even Austria to see our famous Weihnachtsmarkt (two more days! plenty of bargains left!!)

I am going to a gospel concert with Slim this evening, then a dinner party on Monday, then to the Black Forest for a few days with G's family, so any posting or e-mailing that I don't do tomorrow will not be done until the 27th.

Dear readers, I hope that you will enjoy a peaceful and happy holiday, in the place and style that most appeals. May the deity of your choice bless you in the manner of your choice.
