Agree on the balloon-inflating being more interesting than the parade. When I worked a couple of blocks from Rockefeller Center, I'd go during lunch every day to watch progress on the big tree, from the moment it was erected (which must have been done overnight; it would have been a thrill) until the finishing touches. It's the process of the work that fascinates far more than the finished product. Sondheim's song, "Finishing the Hat," says it.

P.S. On a day when the branches were being trimmed to effect a perfectly-shaped tree, the trimmings lay on the ground. I took eight or 10 pieces, put a few on my desk and brought the rest home. It was fun to have them tied with broad, red ribbons to the old, interior shutters in the living room -- a share of the R.C. tree in my tiny apartment.

Now you've given me a nudge to find out when this year's tree will be erected and go regardless of the hour.

'uh-oh, Mexico. It's working its way south...'

If you're correct, maybe 'it' will take Trump with it? He'd be quite the hit in Mexico, as in pinata.

So sweet of you to think of me and my darling husband, and certainly my little babies! There is much to be grateful for. Thank you for that reminder for my day! May you be blessed and have peace.
