Happy New Year

Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And auld lang syne!

Christma Eve

After church concert of carols early this evening we're all gathereing in the den to watch the 1951 movie version of A Christmas Carol. I've seen it just shy of 50 times probably, but always enjoy it.
MERRY CHRISTMAS to all (Yankees too)

Christmas week

My wife and I are spending the week at my son's home up in NE Louisiana--Log Cabin. Louisiana. He lives far from the big city (or any city) in a wooded area of 18 acres, I walked my Granddog, Joe, through the wooded area where my son's house is located, and through the adjoining woods. Brisk, about 50 degrees, nothing but the sound of leaves as I walked. No sirens, no horns, etc. Saw one deer. Joe bolted after him but the deer was too quick, I guess, as Joe retuned a few minutes later, returning to his sniffing and tree-search.
We'll have seven at the dinner(noon) table Christmas morning.
It will be cold enough for the fireplace tonight so on to gather some "free" firewood.

Trying to get back

Trying to get back into the blogging scheme. Been working on getting my advanced reader copies out. Several people have generously agreed to read and comment. But getting it all done is a bit of a chore for a newby.
