    I found this Mailbag to be very interesting, particularly Keith's question. I really like your answer to his question. Nuance is an interesting concept.

    I am sorry you do not enjoy Christmas. My husband feels the same way as his father died on Christmas Eve.

    I just finished reading today's mailbag and was about to start a forum discussion when I noticed you had already done it, Pamela. Thank you so much for creating this forum. smile

    A Beautiful Monday and Happy Holidays, Mr. Bill. As always, I enjoyed and learnt something new from today's mailbag. I particularly enjoyed Robert's question. Wonderful questions, and as usual, wise answers. Thank you very much, sir. I am grateful for your kindness and support.

    Lots of Blessings to both of you! smile

    Bill
    Oh how I wish I could simply rewrite one of my pieces & end up with a masterpiece.
    But you are right...it doesn't work that way.

    As for Christmas, please do something to pamper yourself & Bev. 
    You both deserve it.

    I can't imagine not having a little bit of Christmas spirit.
    At least for me the lights make everything magical.

    Even when everything is going wrong.. this time of year makes me smile.

    I'll be thinking of you & sending your prayers for strength to make it through.

    We truly don't know what anyone else is going through in life.

    Just take care and enjoy that drone.

      Brenda, dinner with Bev and practicing with my drone will make for a fine Christmas. All will be well.

      Thank you and I hope your week is progressing nicely.

    Interesting questions and answers once again, Bill. It is good to have another Christmas approach with the Mailbag still around. I hope you and Bev have the best Christmas possible.
    Thank you for sharing in the forum, Pamela.

    My husband's grandfather (his father-figure, since his died when he was a toddler), died on Christmas Eve.  So, like you, it has never been a favorite time of year for him.  It is not happenstance that we associate the people we love with certain holidays. You will get through this season!  Enjoy it as best you can with your lovely Bev and your furry babies.

      Thank you Peggy! I will get through for sure, unless the universe has other plans for me. Blessings to you always!
