I seem to have done something unfortunate to one of my fingers in my sleep. This morning it hurt noticeably if I bent it, even after painkillers. I made a makeshift splint out of the materials on hand, and it's much better now.
They put up the holiday decorations downtown today. When I went home for lunch, the wreaths were on the lampposts, and a couple of guys were up in cherry-pickers trimming the big tree on Lincoln Place.
