  • The sweetness of Christmas

     

    There’s a smile on my face. It’s Christmas and along with celebrating the birth of Our Lord I will be swarmed by the full load of family this week.  You are welcome to come to my house on Friday as busloads of grandchildren, (all of them), and all the children and in-laws and hopefully you, stuff yourself in my house. Just be forewarned that water closet time may be limited.

  • May peace find you this year

  • No Black Friday craziness this year

     

    The madness is over until next year.

    The annual tradition of people trampling over each other to save $3 on a Barbie doll has passed.

    The day that decent people turn into maniacs willing to behead someone even looking at that last X-Box in their hands is no more.

    That’s right, I survived another Black Friday or should I say, Gray Thursday.

    Now, for the most part, my above comments are in jest.
