Sorry yesterday may have sounded grumpy.  But I power shopped yesterday and was tired.  One more gift to go and so hopefully after my volunteer time wrapping gifts for Project Patriot* is complete, I will get it and head home to do the decorating, more cleaning, baking, etc before everyone comes home next week.

Meanwhile enjoy today's funny - the upside of snow!
