ozarque figure

Personal note...

My guess -- my informed guess -- is that I won't have time to do another post today. Because this is the day that I make the Only-Once-A-Year Fruitcake [recipe at http://ozarque.livejournal.com/180281.html ]. The process will go a bit more slowly than usual, because the step in the instructions where I put the hot melted butter out on the front porch to cool faster isn't going to work this time; we've been having very strange winter weather -- temperatures in the upper 60s every day -- and that makes my front porch no cooler than my house. I also have to do the Christmas Eve and Christmas Day grocery shopping lists, and a batch of laundry, and a batch of leftover clerical stuff I never did get to yesterday... and, and, and.

I'll settle, therefore, for thanking you for your comments on my flawed enigma of a Christmas poem, and wish you a pleasant day, and will be back tomorrow.

In unseemly haste.....
