Just as sure as we know California will have FIRES every year, we know they will have the RAINS and FLOODING. It's happening in Northwestern Arizona, too. Houses are dropping off cliffs into the raging flood waters! WOW, I feel for those poor people.
We aren’t getting anything like that here but it has been raining a little. A welcome sight to this part of the desert, as it is very dry this year. So far it is sucking up every drop of moisture we get. Let's hope it stays that way.
Many thanks for all the comments and congratulations on the new truck. Ms Pat and I are having a ball getting acquainted with it and learning where everything is and what it does. They sure don’t build these new vehicles for us old Cowboys. Everything has a memory and has to be programmed. It’s neat, if you can figure it out!!
One real neat feature is that it has BLUETOOTH and when Ms Pat’s phone rings, it comes in over the Bose sound system. It almost scared me to death the first time it rang but the hands free conversing is unbelievable and a great safety feature.
This will be my last Blog before Christmas, so this will be my last chance to wish all of you a very, MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!!!
Ms Megabyte2 has her stocking hung and is wishing you all a special "Meow'ry" Christmas from her. :-)
We have more Christmas decorations up this year than we have had since we retired and sold our S&B house in Tallahassee, FL.
Again, in tradition, here is our Christmas Tree. My Mom made this tree many, many tears ago and Ms Pat adored it so much that Mom said she could have it when she was gone. Mom left us a few years ago and we have displayed her beautiful Christmas tree and other special ornaments every year. Here it is Mom.....in YOUR HONOR. We miss you!!!
Mom had lots of Christmas decorations and she loved these little "Caroling Mice" ornaments. :-)
Even our Patio Porch Table has some special decorations for the season..
This special Christmas Tree sets off our Patio at night. It is special because our special and close friend Dale Bruss gave it to us. I love it and it reminds me of Dale every time I look at it. It has a motor in the base that drives a revolving light that changes colors on the tree. It’s really pretty!
We also have a few decorative lights hanging in the tree out front and around the window on the front of the house. The ones in the tree are "shotgun" shells and the ones around the window are "Harley" lights. Sorry I don't have any pictures of the lights but they are compliments of our special friends Greg and Bonnie. Thanks guys!
So that’s about it from here in Arizona where we are enjoying this First Christmas in our new House. We hope that you too are enjoying whatever you're doing wherever you are as we honor Christ our Lord on his Birthday and continue to give thanks to Him for what He provides us.
It is a GREAT WEEK!!!
ONE MORE TIME:
Mike and Pat
