Jazzercise and War

So my Jazzercise teacher is back from her eventful trip to visit her family in Lebanon. The bombing started shortly after she arrived but she managed to get out safely and her family is OK. She did not seem to want to talk about it much. She only said that it was hard to leave her family behind and that she feels selfish that she can just leave. While she was gone an aerobics instructor took her place but I did not like it - no real dance moves, just mostly jumping jacks, shuffling from side to side and running in place. And her music was no fun.

Here's another neighborhood picture, this one of a diving shop window:

It is that time of year again to start not working on the McDonald Family Christmas Contest.
