That's why I wrap in the guest room - on the dresser. Not as easy as on the dining room table in the days before pets. But better than there with a dog and cat.


Then again, most wrapping is in newspaper. We send the kids and grandkids checks as the main gift. We give each other cheese, pates, single malts, and - this year - a heck of a lot of really dark chocolate. Hey - it's healthy!
