Merry Christmas

Or whatever greeting of the season you prefer.

Here's a link to a card my local buddy Janet sent to me. It's adorable.

Merry Christmas

All is well here. Ray chugs along and so do I. I'll be cooking a simple Christmas dinner on Christmas Eve for Tim and his partner who will be coming in from Fresno. As far as I know, the girls will be joining us for dessert, eggnog (and presents), and then spend Christmas Day with their honorary grandparents down the road. Extended families can become rather confusing but they'll have a good Christmas however it works out. Hard to believe they're all teens.

We're having long overdue rain off and on this week along with what, for us, is cold weather. We've hit freezing a couple of nights. I shouldn't complain though when I look at what most of this country and Canada are dealing with. My friends in Australia should be enjoying summer.

Warning - Once again I'm assaulting your ears with classical music for Christmas.

Have a wonderful holiday and, if I don't get back before then, a blessed New Year.

Fisher House

My friend Chris at Rude Cactus is donating $0.50 for each comment he receives in the next 24 hours (probably 21 hours by the time I post this at around 8:00 PST) to Fisher House.

Fisher House seems to be similar to Ronald McDonald houses here and provides free or low cost housing to families of veterans or troops receiving treatment at military hospitals.

So, if you have time, drop in and say hi to Chris.

I'll try to get back with some kind of Christmas update - meantime hope you all are enjoying the season.
