...pearl arbor day

Hi. We put the tree up at work and it looks quite beautiful. The light strands were ka-put so we forged ahead without them. There were also strands of lights with little pearls on them, but not enough to fill the tree. So what! Cram and silver ornaments, feathers strategically placed and a glittery tree skirt made for a wonderful combination. So, it wasn't a pearl arbor day but all worked out well. So pretty! On this day tho', in 1941, The Imperial Japanese Navy attacked the US Pacific Fleet and its defending Army Air Forces and Marine air forces at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, causing a declaration of war to Japan by the USA. Not so pretty. I shipped off a handful of Christmas Stockings late last night with the able assistance of JW and they are off to their respective recipients. Have fun today, try to keep the violence to a minimum...if at all and if you feel your lights fading, find an alternate source of energy.
