Happy Holidays to you all on this great forum. It took me 4 days to get here for Christmas, and I arrived in time for a 3-foot snowstorm. After several days we managed to get the kids home and the presents were unwrapped this morning with all in attendance. The home looks like a slice of eastern Afghanistan - about 12 rugs on the floors, carved wooden bowls, marble vases, silk scarves - I left some good friends in eastern Afghanistan who couldn't leave for Christmas and I send my best wishes to them all.
It's a good Christmas for the North Benders. I hope it is for all the mak fans out there too.
