Just thought I'd drop you a quick note




Wondering what you have all been up to

How is your Decorating coming along

Have you finished all of your Holiday Shopping

Did you venture outside and play in the snow

Have you been to the beach and played in the water

Have you wrapped all of your presents
...have you at least made a dent

Holiday Baking ???


What is on YOUR wish list
That's right YOU
not your kids or your spouse
or anyone else in the family or friends


It doesn't have to be perfect
Enjoy the Season

Peace and Love People

A visitor from Australia

by , in
So as I sit here
 in front of my computer
 gobble down
breakfast of champions

this is not ordinary popcorn people
this is Smartfood...really
covered in powdered cheese flavor
it's good
and good for you

let's move on

Last night my SIL invited
the fam over to say goodbye
 to our cousins daughter
 who is visiting from Australia
Cass and her girlfriend
are doing a whirlwind tour
of the US and Canada
during their summer break
from University

You know
Los Angeles
 New York
(that is all I can remember)
 then back home
 to the balmy summer
climes of Australia

Cass is the one back row second from the left
Nephew, Cass, Nephew, Mother, Sister, Moi, BIL
SIL (hostess), Niece, Brother (Host), Brother
This is a small sampling of my family
It was Wednesday after all
and most could not make it

Some of you may remember
my brother
from last years Christmas photos
He is still a cut up

This past summer
he won some Ballroom medals
He is quite the Hoofer

Father and Son
in a heated battle
Can you feel the intensity

It was great to see Cass
we had tons of fun
lots of laughs as per usual
when we all get together

Her parents were here last summer
Maybe the next time
 we meet it will be
in the land of OZ

Happy Thursday Friends
Peace Love and Big Hugs
