I agree with that, but the non-Christmas types would be up and arms about that.

Would these six notes be better?

I have not been on here since Saturday morning. A lot going on, good stuff! Wayne went ahead and got his bike Saturday so we went riding for quite awhile. It was so much fun that at one time we were going to come back home but I told him I don't want to so we passed the house up and just kept riding! We then went out to lunch, came home and rode our bikes again!

Saturday night was Greasy Skillet. Church, work and Super Bowl on Sunday. Go Ravens! Now that the Super Bowl is over I am back to the Cowboys and wearing my Cowboys t-shirt today. I just wanted to support Wayne and his team. What an emotionally draining game, phew, that was a close one!!! I sure enjoyed the glow on Wayne's face last night when they won!!!

My granddaughter and I took our bikes out today and rode around a bit. Then some neighbors a few houses down had thrown out a porch swing (the kind on a stand). The only thing wrong with it was a broken board on it. My son and I carried it home and he helped me fix it by replacing the piece of wood and painted it. It was nice hanging out with my son and working on it together. It is sturdy and looks great now! Now my son and I can get into repairing furniture together! =)

You can tell the weather has been really nice around here with everything going on! I will try to stop by more often, just a lot going on right now.

Have a Merry Night my Christmas friends!!!
Sounds like you are enjoying your bikes.

I hope this situation gets resolved quickly.

I wish I could take 20 days to do my job.

Good (late) evening,

Busy day here, work not so much, but we found a new daycare/preschool for LC. It is exactly what he needs and he will be with kids his age. It is in the next town over, but he deserves a preschool like that. We had my bro-in-law over for dinner, he comes over once a week to spend time with his nephews, he loves them and they just admire him.
I should head to sleep soon, just had to visit the greatest place on the web before.

Good night everyone.

I can't sleep. It must be that bluegrass I was listening too. I'm sure it has nothing to do with that pot of coffee I had at 11pm.
