In the spirit of the holidays, I thought I'd run this e-mail my dad sent me a few days ago.
In the meantime... go spend some time with your family and friends, relax with a good book, run around in the backyard with your kids or just sit back and recharge your batteries.
I am sorry about getting into an argument about putting up the Christmas lights.
I guess that sometimes I feel like you are pushing me too hard when you want something.
I realize that I was wrong and I am apologizing for being such a hard-headed guy.
All I want is for you to be happy and be able to enjoy the holiday season. Nothing brightens the Christmas spirit like Christmas lights!
I took the time to hang the lights for you today and now I will be off to go hunting.
Again, I am very sorry for the way I acted yesterday.
I'll be home later.
