I went to the home improvement store to do a little shopping and pick up some Halloween stuff Saturday. I, like most people, try to shut down a little bit on the weekend, so I hadn't heard the forecast. I just didn't expect all the snow.I wasn't in the door of the store more than 20 feet when winter broke out. There were snowmen and penguins, There were reindeer and elves. There was Santa and the Grinch. And I'm pretty sure there was a Christmas Yoda. Nothing says "holiday season" like Star Wars, right?

Normally, I would be flipping out over how early everything is and how rushed everything is, but this time was different. This time I liked it. As a matter of fact, Diane and I actually bought a few holiday things. Imagine that. Now I'm part of the problem. Anyway, Merry Christmas!!
