I've been hoping to slow down a bit, so we can enjoy the season. We talk about this every January. Sure enough, Nancy wants to go shopping Saturday (great!), then another trip Sunday afternoon to Savannah to see a live nativity with a local church. I think it would be fun to see, but that's another whole afternoon gone. Oh well.

Enough complaining...it's Christmastime!!

I hope y'all have a great day!
I've also been complaining a little bit. It's going way too fast, I wish it would slow down.
I hope you have a great day too!

But first off to the school of hairdressing where they are going to attempt to do something with this mop on my head.

Have a great day everyone!
We are having mild temperatures today too. I just opened up the sliding glass door in the back so the cats could look out, I don't feel any cold air.
Have fun at the hairdresser and have a great day!

So, seeing it is an un-planned day off, so no "to do" list has been created, I am going to try to accomplish as little as needed , and make it a Christmas-type day (it is coming upon us so fast).

Eggnog is at the ready, and two new DVD's recently arrived from Amazon will be in my DVD players soon: Perry Como Christmas Speciall (from 1974, w/ The Carpenters, Peggy Fleming, and Rich Little) and The Dean Martin Christmas Show from 1968, w/ Lucille Ball, Jimmy Stewart, Jack Benny, Tony Bennett, and Johnny Carson, among others.

Bet it's not too difficult to see where I got the name "Classic Christmas" from, eh?
Enjoy your day, it sounds wonderful!

That's awesome, your coworker must be thrilled. So kind of you to do

Hey, if your planning to start a new side business...I have a couple of them as well that are in need of repairing and no one around to repair them.
