The December Challenges . . . Keeping the Christmas Spirit and Working to Maintain The Business

It's getting closer. last minute panic is going to set in shortly and people will be out there with a vengeance trying to satisfy those last minute details.

It;s's also a time of year to be extra careful while out there as the Christmas celebrations have already started as well.

♫  Dashing through the snow in my rusty Chevrolet.
Down the road I go, sliding all the way.
I need new piston rings. I need some new snow tires.
My car is held together by a piece of chicken wire!

Oh, rust and smoke, the heater's broke, the door just blew away.
I light a match to see the dash and then I start to pray-ay.
The frame is bent, the muffler went, the radio's okay.
Oh, what fun it is to drive this rusty Chevrolet!

I went to IGA to get some Christmas cheer.
I just passed up my left front tire and it's gettin' hard to steer.
Speeding down the highway, right past the county cops.
I have to drag my swampers just to get the car to stop.  ♫

Day 22 

Completed the last details of a new contract and got a clean deal going with the inspections. This will be a late January closing. Also got my new buisness cards in so I can get busy and complete my year endmailing. A little later than I had hoped.

Another cute little ditty Ed, you are armed with them.  Glad you got your new business cards, better to get them out late than not at all!

Hey Guys, I'm running out of mind and there are still a few days to go, I'm on fumes here.

Joan, people tend to overlook obvious things this time of year, like my Christmas Presents. Thanks for stopping

Wanda, no swaying in your seat. You'll have that tune in your mind for the rest of the evening

Andrea, if you remember that car, then you must have gotten it after I got rid of it.

Ellie, I suppose there are worse tunes you could be humming. Merry Christmas
