Christmas at the PHC
By Mary Lynn Bushong
  

1     "Well, that's the last of the supplies. Everything is checked in and put away on the storage shelves," said Tim as he tapped the handheld computer screen and entered the data. "Once again, a job well done." Tim skipped a couple of steps, and a huge smile spread across his face as he looked over at Lori, who had been helping him with the shipment of new supplies.
 
2     "What is the matter with you?" Tim asked as he looked at Lori and noticed her sad expression. "I figured you would be really excited. This is the last week of school before Christmas vacation."
 
3     "Yeah, well, it's just another day, isn't it?" Lori said as she looked back at Tim. She saw the questioning expression on his face. "I just mean Christmas here on the PHC isn't the same as any place else, is it?"
