Wednesday, December 27, 2017 – Merry Christmas from the Family
Merry Christmas from the Family. Thank you, Robert Earle Keene for such a lovely song that describes the social institution known as The Family during the holiday season.
And thank you to my family for such a wonderful Christmas. I love my pajamas with tree lights pattern. I was wondering if they come in black. HWIT – I could pretend they are black slacks and wear them everywhere.
I was honored to sit in chair formerly occupied by my dear sister, Dale. Previously, I sat on the floor so this is a big leap.
For the next hour we oohed and ahhed over various unwrapping of boxes. I so love the portraits of the former Presidents on the greenish rectangular paper. I especially like the bill that has one of two portraits of a non-president. Hint: It is not Alexander Hamilton, but his pic looks pretty good in my wallet. Bonus: In 2020 a third non president will be featured on a US Currency. Do you know who it is?
As usual, I was thankful that no one who ate my cooking had to go to the ER or had to spend the night in the bathroom. I do not think the gumbo was my best effort this year. Maybe because I knew Dale would not be there to eat it. More than likely it was because I forgot to add a bunch of seasonings. Oh well.
It was a calm and peaceful Christmas filled with love and memories. Of course that could have been due to the bottle of Prozac I dumped in the gumbo.
Merry Christmas From the Family.
