William's Blog...with a smile!


I am little help in decorating!

Thee is a lot of decorating going on in the Feela home.

My wife is doing well after knee surgery and is making a

strong attempt to get more decorations up.

Just found out the Grand Kids will be here for Christmas.

So, we need to make it look like Christmas for them.


My role is to bring in the boxes and get out of he way.

I like the last part the most!

Good morning William. You nailed it, bring in the boxes and get out of the way! It is a standing order in my home. Enjoy your day!

Well at least you can make that contribution, William Feela In my house I bring in the boxes, decorate, that it down, take out the boxes! Love the cartoon.

Getting out of the way is a good plan but with your loved ones knee surgery you might need to call in some elves to help you out.

Sometimes help is not what one needs.

I have the same job at our house...to move the boxes from the basement. Chef Dolores does most to the decorating.

Well I understand but you are being very supportive I am almost certain and doing anything that you can to help your wife.  We have quit putting out as many decorations as we have in the past, but we do always put up our tree for sure.  Merry Christmas!

I am guessing you do most of the work on the outside of the home?  I am sure it is a team effort for getting everything just right.

Good morning William.  I can totally relate.  This is when us macho men learn to keep our mouths shut and do as we're told.

Good morning William. I am glad to hear your wife is doing better and the cartoon is really cute.

Good morning William - my elves (my daughters) come by to put up the decorations on the true after I have put the lights on it.

HI William Feela - My husband helps with all the decorations and lights. I get involved with trimming the tree. It works for us.

Like Nina Hollander, I am the Christmas Elf that moves boxes, decorates the tree and in a few weeks undoes it all.

Whatever you can do to help out I'm sure is appreciated. I had knee surgery in June and it's not completely back to normal. A helper is a blessing.

I got most of my decorations up a couple of weeks ago only because we had a couple of holiday parties at my house this year. I could use some help taking them down after Xmas. Interested

I have had several friends fall off of ladders recently and it’s not as easy as you get older to get up and get going on decorations I am going to install permanent hooks for next year so as to only have to deal with it from the ground.

Morning William.

I have one job, stay out of the way.  I don't help with the tree, gift wrapping etc.

With all you do or your wife I bet it takes many days.

Bill, the only thing worse than what you described is taking them down and putting them up!
