I drove up there and got them for you. From what the neighbors told me of your grandfather he was very creative. I'm hoping you got some of that and can make something of these. I'm sorry it's the best I could do."

I could not believe the kindness of that man to have even considered that.

Sooo... my gift to myself - I'm making a large hand carved collage frame with inlays of celtic knot work because my father's side is Irish. The frame will house my favorite photos and lithographs of that side of my family including my son. Hence... my version of my family tree on my dad's side. LOL I really hope I don't mess it up. LOL

LOL Sorry, I'm excited about it. I didn't mean to post another novel.

Hope everyone has a blessed day!!

That was extremely nice of them!!!!

The frame sounds like it will be beautiful!! Please post a picture when you are done!!!

Yesterday's snow was perfect. There was just enough to cover the ground decently, it snowed all day at varying rates and was pretty to watch, and it didn't make driving dangerous.

That does sound perfect!!! Enjoy!!!!

Good Morning MMC!!!!! It's going to be chilly day with a high right around 20 degree's. At least that is about 5 degree's warmer than they were thinking a few days ago. Not much on my agenda today. Just one major project that I need to get done. Then if I have some time left, I might start making some candy. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!

Glad to hear Carl is courteous to his employees by letting them have Christmas off.
That must be why he is selling this shirt:

We decided tonight that we would go and buy groceries and do all of our Christmas shopping this week. It's going to be a long Saturday, but we will get it all done in a day. It will be worth it when it's over. i'd like to go Friday night and Saturday, but we will see.

Hope everyone is doing great! See ya tomorrow!


NICE! Enjoy the lil bambina for 2 whole weeks! Great plan to get groceries ahead of time. I try, but always end up making several trips back to the store!!
