Are you finished with your Christmas shopping yet? Or are you one of those people who hits the mall fifteen minutes before it closes on Christmas Eve, frantically searching for anything to finish out your shopping list? I mean what the heck? Any present is better than no present, right? Well, maybe not. Today I […]

Before I do anything else today, I want to wish my dear friend Jim Lewis happy birthday. I’m not going to tell you how old Jim is, but let’s just say that what we all studied as history in high school was current events for Jim. And now, on to Christmas shopping. Miss Terry is […]

Okay, everybody, ‘fess up. Who totally blew their diet yesterday? Come on, don’t be ashamed. I know we did around here. Terry made a delicious meal of turkey breast, sweet potato stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, a couple of kinds of vegetables, cranberry relish, rolls, and both pecan and pumpkin pie. God bless the man who […]

Well, it won’t be long now. In just a couple more days the mad rush to the stores to buy a bunch of stuff people don’t really want so that you can give it to them for Christmas, (and in return they’ll buy you a bunch of stuff you don’t want), will be over. Of […]

Miss Terry is a difficult woman to shop for because she doesn’t want very much in the way of material things. Whenever I ask her what she wants for Christmas, her birthday, our anniversary, or whatever, she always says she has everything she wants. Once in a while, she’ll let me buy her a bottle of […]

Yesterday afternoon I broke my own self-imposed rule not to enter a big box store between Thanksgiving and the middle of January. To me, nothing spoils the Christmas spirit like fighting for a parking space so I can go into a store and fight a crowd of people to find stuff I really don’t need, […]

That’s been my routine for the last few days and I don’t see it ending anytime soon, based upon the way I feel. But believe me, I’m more than ready for it to be over. And worse, Miss Terry now has a scratchy throat and has sneezed a few times. I really hope she’s not […]

A while back, I wrote a blog post titled What Do You Want For Christmas?, and a number of you shared what you hope to find under your tree come Christmas morning. So today, since all I really have to write about is that I’ve been working on the paper and making headway, I thought […]

Okay, we all stuffed ourselves yesterday and defeated a year’s worth of dieting, but don’t beat yourself up over it. The way I see things, God made me this way, and who am I to try to change His creation? Yeah, I know, that was probably sacrilegious, and truth be told, the Burger King and […]
