NS: Uh-huh. Well, that was the first and only Christmas we were there. [Laughs] Yes. It was cold and it was certainly different. Did I do a descriptive thing on it? Probably.

DG: I think...

NS: It's a good thing I wrote all that [Laughs], because after all these years I can forget.

NS: Oh, yes. We -- did I write anything about making candles? Got the sagebrush and melted wax and put a wick through it and made sagebrush candles. Yes, we were quite innovative in those days.

DG: And a tumbleweed Christmas tree with the stars or something.

NS: [Laughs]
