So, I left on my post-Christmas trip before I had a chance to squee about the two gifts I received in the Yuletide Madness collection. But I'm back now (briefly--I'm leaving again Tuesday morning), and I wanted to make sure everyone knew about them!

What price glory?

Such a treat! Definitely the most unusual Yuletide gift I've ever gotten--a poem about George Finch, a fascinating figure, who pioneered the use of oxygen tanks in mountain climbing (a much contested innovation), and accompanied Mallory on the 1922 Everest expedition, but was excluded from the 1924 expedition. And it's a sonnet!

I am very grateful to have received such bounty this year!

Happy New Year's, everyone--I'll be back in town on the 2nd.
