That was the CNN opinion question this morning, and I was surprised to find myself in a 25% minority who said no. I rather enjoyed the holidays. Maybe this is because we didn’t go to any malls or travel or do much of anything but visit with friends and go for a few hikes. We especially enjoyed an 8-mile out and back at Dutch Gap, even if there is a power plant from Hell there. Alice and Sharky were unavailable for comment, but as you can see they had quite the fun New Year’s Eve.
