Christmas past

Our tree went up today along with many other seasonal decorations. The process brings back memories of Christmas' past and especially those with young children in the house. Why is it that we have to look back to realize "how blessed we were" and don't fully realize it at the time

Now that golf season has closed down, I have gone back to putting items on eBay. It's not a matter of making a lot of money but more about getting rid of things we no longer need or want. Smokey Bear and Woodsy Owl items sell well. Postal rates have increased to where I have misjudged some of the cost of mailing and have had to "subsidize" some shipping charges. In addition to getting rid of things that other people want, it helps keep me challenged to do the listing, etc.

New Dog in the Family

Our Daughter and her Husband have a new little puppy. They live nearby and have visited us yesterday soon after getting her and again today. She is a very friendly little Maltese/Yorke mix. While there is a lot of work involved in training a puppy, Grandparents can just enjoy their friendship.
