For weeks, my email in-box has been stuffed. I have discovered that rather than patronizing one or two major merchants for all my shopping needs, I spread the shopping love around. Large stores, small stores, local stores, online stores. Hardware stores, clothing stores, kitchen stores, tech stores. There are stores I go for when shopping for myself, stores I know that have just what Mrs Dr Peterr needs, and stores that The Kid adores, plus all of those other places that have the things I need when I shop for others.

And every one of them — every single one of them — has been sending me holiday messages for the last several weeks. . . .
