*Expletive Deleted*...

...The Mayans were right.  Or so I said when the power went out at 1AM our time, which I figured was approximately midnight Mayan time.

My boys had decided that the world would end at the start of 12/21.  And the power outage sure looked like they were right. 

And, crap!  My generator is ordered, but won't be installed until early January.

At least we had picked up the Christmas tree before the world ended.  (And I played with a 9 week old Great Pyrenees puppy at the tree farm.  He was an adorable ball of fluff.)

And then the power came back on after only 50 minutes.  Joy to the world.  I'm easily pleased these days.

Cute post, and I *LOVE* the partial family portrait at the tree-getting place.

But why no photo of the cute fluff-ball for us? ;)

Cute picture. Glad the world didn't end. And yes - why no pictures of the puppy? g
