May the Holidays Treat You Well

We'll have a few surprise packages to open, but one thing never changes at our place this time of year. Assorted treats will be provided at all times for all comers between full-scale banquet meals.

We alternate holiday events between our home and Lee's house, which is only a healthy walk away from us. Last year, Lee and his fiancée Karen hosted Christmas dinner. This year, we'll be taking on that responsibility. Due to a marked lack of culinary skills on my part, that means most of the work will fall to beautiful wife Sandy. I, however, am a fair hand in the drink pouring department.

Karen and Lee's dog, Pearl, is a major treat recipient no matter where we hold the main meal events. You can be sure she won't miss a chance to successfully beg for a tidbit of ham, sweet potato, or other delicacy.

We wish you health, happiness, and some special treats this holiday season.

We are having too many treats lately. I told my nurse practitioner I would try hard to be good, but it's hard.

Ah well... enjoy the season!

Pearl is adorable!

I'm trying to behave with the treats, but after all, 'tis the season. All the joys of the season to you and your family!

The same to you and yours. Hope your holiday is a treat. Our first Dec. big family dinner is this Saturday 28 people eek. They do this so everyone can stay home for Christmas and T-giving too. We call it Thanksmass.

Novel idea, Celia, and a good one. I'm sure your family avoids all sorts of travel and other complications with this plan.
