The Second Cup: Dec. 19 Edition
You've had your first cup of coffee; now relax with the second and find out what's up for the day in Lake Saint Louis.
Good morning, Lake Saint Louis!
Can I vent for a bit here, even if it's over a pretty trivial matter? What is with packages of Christmas bows with colors that will never match any wrapping paper?
The last few years, it's been purple, and I have quite a supply built up. (It used to be blue, but this year there is a proliferation of blue paper, and I've had no problem using up my blue bows.) My family went on a purple paper hunt Friday evening. After checking several stores, we finally found three rolls of wrapping paper: one has a sprinkling of off-purple ornaments, the other has some sort-of-purple background sparkles, and the third is just a silver-on-silver paper that I thought would work with the purple bows.
I haven't bought any bows this year yet, but when I looked at the packages my heart sank. It looks like the fashionable new color is a dark maroon. Why?
Hope you had a great weekend, got lots of things accomplished and can have a relaxing week before Christmas to got to parties, enjoy your company, go for a holiday lights drive, sit by the fireplace with a hot chocolate or watch your favorite Christmas movie.
It's Monday, and that means I'll be at city hall tonight for the work session and board of aldermen meeting.
At 6 a.m., I posted a photo gallery from Santa's final neighborhood visit. I had a lot of fun tagging along at the end of the parade and snapping pictures of happy kids and some great holiday decorations.

The Senate acquited Clinton of the impeachment charges.
