|After a hiatus of several years, during which time I became a painter, opened
an art gallery, and had four grandchildren (actually I didn't HAVE them - but
I did play with them a lot), I finally found time to create my annual
gingerbread house once again. And with all those grandbabies waiting for
Santa, we had to do Christmas Eve at the North Pole, of course. The reindeer
are hitched up. The elves are inside, packing Santa's bag, a Rudolf is just
coming out of the barn. It won't be long now!
