Thursday Thoughts

Happy New Year
I was filling out some medical forms yesterday morning, and they provided me with my first opportunity to correctly note the year as 2019. I am happy to say that I nailed it every time. I have strong recollections of taking about a month to get the correct year back in the days when we wrote checks. Now I rarely even have to sign my name to anything. When Bill’s nurse visited yesterday, she told me I have great hope for a wonderful 2019, and I couldn’t agree more.

Sock Hop
I had heard through the grapevine that Court has taken to wearing crazy socks. I almost didn’t believe it because he is soooo not the type to wear crazy socks. And yet, on Christmas Day, he proudly showed me this…..

Seeings as A Christmas Story is one of my favorite Christmas movies, and the “Pink Nightmare” scene is among my favorite scenes, I couldn’t have been prouder!

Suck It In
There is nothing more humbling than trying on old clothes. Bill’s kids somehow got ahold of his college fraternity jacket. With great glee, they convinced him to try it on. That was 50 years ago, people!…..

Heck, we were happy that he was able to wear his McLain plaids to Christmas Eve services…..

Smile: You’re on Candid Camera
It’s hard to get a serious photo these days. Here are a couple of photos that were taken over the holidays. The first is the gathering of all of our grandkids, and the second is the gathering of many of my great nieces and great nephews at Bec’s New Year’s party…..

Everyone’s a comedian.

Early Celebration
For years, Bec, Jen, Bill, and I have eaten a noon meal on New Year’s Eve Day at Houston’s Restaurant in Scottsdale. That way we are home before things get crazy. This year was no exception…..
Food’s On
I’ll leave you with a scattering of evidence of some of the yummy things I ate over the past few days…..
