Christmas Tree Holiday Greetings from Chicago

Well, actually Evanston, IL (the closest norther burb to Chicago). I'm Jim and am a proud pug dad to two great male pugs Barrymore (3) and Dooley (1). My partner of 26 years and I are true Christmas nuts. I was the Executive Producer of the Christmas Traditions Festival in historic St. Charles Missouri for ten years before relocating here in 2006. We decorate the inside and outside of our home like fiends. One tree is already up, with four more to come by Thanksgiving. I look forward to getting to know everyone here at the forum.

Best,
Jim, Larry, Barrymore and Dooley
