Herb in RV with XMAS LightsHerb in RV with XMAS LightsHome Sweet Home - or at least for awhile. Since we sold our home in New Jersey, this was pretty much it for awhile. Oh Boy!

How was I going to decorate for Christmas? Where would the tree go? I had been on such an incredible Christmas high in Yosemite when it snowed, but almost totally lost it with the palm trees in San Diego. I had to rally.

I ran out to CVS and bought a strand of colored lights for $3.99, and Herb put on Christmas music and hung them up in the back living room/bedroom area of the motorhome. What a difference it made!! Thank you Herb, Bing Crosby, and Nat King Cole.
