Sacrifices. A deeper-than-normal cut made whilst slicing out tags for the Christmas card puppets.
Two of the seven sacks of cards went out to the foreign and out-of-state folks last week. Two more sacks are complete and will go out with the last three-bags-full in tomorrow's mail. Some of the more exotic locations these little blokes will be arriving to shortly are Australia, Greece, UK, Argentina, Japan, and Brooklyn.
Santa's Workshop will Officially Close Wednesday and I'll be free to enjoy living in my Halfland once again. I've been thinking a lot about details for various aspects as I cut/snip/glue on the couch with great old movies (have you seen Carol Reeds' The Third Man?! So wonderful, very Citizen Kane-like!), a blanket during my "ladies" distresses.
