Had to run, back for a minute. Sheesh, blinkered electronic dryer with the NASA Space Center controls must have been designed by Microsoft, specifically the guy who designed the estimator for time remaining for file transfers. Forty minutes ago it said fourteen minutes left. Still waiting! Bub is true champion. Made me shed a tear, courageous kitty won't quit. Love to visit Best Friends, but only briefly; don't think my heart could handle a volunteer stint. Speaking of typos, I misspelled "quoted" as "quted" (cuted?) , and you finished your message with "Thanks for ending that." OMG! "ending"? What did I do?? ooooh, _s_ending_ the link to the video! You're welcome.

Ah, fishing--so peaceful and companionable indeed. I'm glad you have such memories. My dad taught me to fish and to hunt. Now I do neither. When I can (not for a long time now) I like to row to the middle of a friend's huge pond and just sit there and commune with nature. My shooting now is at targets, but it has been a while since I've done that either.

Yes, I learned mechanics from my dad, and I became a rabid sports fan with him too. My world hasn't been the same since his death. We used to have so much fun deliberately choosing rival teams to root for and then teasing each other about game results. I knew if the Redskins beat Dallas, a phone call was coming. LOL

Yikes! That power outage could have been very inconvenient. It was fortunate it so short lived. I lost heat in the wee hours of Christmas morning. I didn't bother to call to have it repaired until Thursday. I spent the day at the folks' place so I didn't need heat at home and didn't want to spoil a repair guy's Christmas...nor did I want to pay for a holiday call. I called at 8 yesterday and they had me all set by noon. I have a little space heater that's been sitting out in the garage for twenty years that I brought in and used in the study so Becky and I really didn't suffer at all. I know how my folks respond to old photos so I can definitely relate to how MIL would have felt. It can be bittersweet when reminded of those we lost but it's good to be reminded of the good times, too. It was a very quiet day with just the folks and my oldest sister on Christmas Day. Dinner was awesome. I cooked a prime rib, stuffed zucchini, mashed potatoes and gravy and leftover Waldorf Relish. My sister made a pumpkin chiffon pie for dessert. It was a righteous feed! I love that you have Christmas all packed away already. I need to get Becky out for another walk so I'll close for now. Enjoy the day.

Depends. Are you a humbagger? I know MJKittyMom loves her handbags/pocketbooks/whatever-you-call-'em, but I didn't think you were the type. Cleaning taking longer? What happened to the helpful elves? (Right I know, Houdini act when that time comes. [In the event there might have been anyone.])

Oh, wine tasting with the girls - fun afternoon! I'm having lunch with a gal pal neighbor today, too. Her hubs had a lung transplant last year, and they want to move back to the Midwest to be near their kids and gkids. I try to spend as much time with her as we can, because I will miss her and her family when they move.... I got a lovely note and a gift from our Betsy and John, too. It was so nice to finally hear from her again. She told me the same thing, and I hope her surgery goes perfectly and she has a speedy recovery. Christmas was great!! Excellent dinner and then a full night with 9 of us playing games :-) We played Catch Phrase, and Cranium, both in teams. I haven't even thought about taking down the Christmas decorations yet; will do that after the first end of next week.

You're just like me!!! I've just cleared out all Christmas stuff too!!! :-D Most peeps here do this after new years. I can't wait to change the calendars too next Monday. The new one's I've bought are so cute!! Great profile pic by the way!! You two look great on it!! So Wee Willie has been entertaining you while you were cleaning up, and clearing out?! The young one's do that! Nozem is like that too!! Every time I make my bed, he jumps all over it :-D Tries to crawl under the blankets. It's very funny :-D I'm glad you all had a great Christmas!!! And off course Christmas food!! ;-D Paining is not all done yet, because Ed didn't prepare for it. He didn't fill up hole's, didn't cover furniture and the floor... and on. It took some time to get that done first. You're right about the preparation things before actually painting. It's tedious :-( I think he's going to do the rest himself. He has two weeks off from work now. So he has plenty of time. It is a small apartment. Oeh... winetasting!! Nice!!!! Bet you girls will have a very nice time doing that!!! As long as you DON'T spit out the wine ;-D

I was too lazy to get out of bed this morning. Went back to sleep and completely spaced a caption. Pretty sure it would have changed the world but it is gone now.

About that electricity bill. Yep, someone paid it, anonymously. That was great! The pensioner himself said in a paper, that he felt like a beggar with a very small pension. - I've been unemployed and that was tough. Every unaccounted for expence is off the every day things and you never can afford anything extra.
