Yes, I've noticed the thread being a little quieter. I haven't had much to say, personally. We are going to get rain & maybe snow over the next couple of days, & also have to go into town today as we have a scheduled appt. I've never liked the commercialization of Christmas, & have eased out over the last few years.
Stan-good luck w/your new horse-sounds like a good one.
Mc-nice bay mare,glad you two clicked. A Papillion? If it works-it works! They are cute!
Good morning to all & hope more chime in as they get time to get back to a computer.
