Happy New Year Everyone...God Bless Us Every One.

From my email to you:

Throughout this year and all of 2011 - May you always make the right choices.

May your cup runneth over with love.

May you always find shelter from any storm

May you remain good looking and looking good

May you find the perfect diet for your soul (If this face doesn't make you want to stop eating sausage, nothing will

May you find perfect balance in the company you keep.

May you have as much fun as you can before someone makes you stop.

May the worst thing that happens to you come in slobbery pink and furry tan.

May you manage to make time for siesta.

May all the new folks you meet be interesting and kind.

May your accessories harmonize with your natural beauty.

Should your mouth be bigger than your stomach, may you have a chewing good time.

May you always know when to walk away and know when to run.

And may your friends always bring you joy.

May you have a wonderful New Year filled with love, happiness, health and hope.

Couldn't have said it better myself.

Ho Ho Ho for Christmas

Living through the renovation of the house we are living in is not easy.  Lots of action and noise though.  Have to post a Christmas laugh or two and hope it makes you smile as it did me.

Stress and Panic

Although we are far from this scene so far, I fear it is in the offing.  It's only 15 degrees this morning and breezy.  The air is dry and the sun is blazing but as my mother used to say, "There's no heat in that sun."
I am delaying walking the dog hoping against hope that the temperature creeps up a tad.  As you dog folks know, I can only push that delay thing so far and then?  she breaks into a dance and whine festival.  I am about ten minutes from the dance and dreading it.

I am going through a shedding period.  Every now and then my hair thins.  I lose tons each morning as I wash and dry it.  It drifts through the air and drops to the bathroom floor, fills the bottom of the basin, scares the bejeepers out of me because I can see my scalp.  This has happened at least twice in the past ten years and though I have always feared total baldness, it has not happened.  I can't remember how long it takes to grow back in and I am hoping, hoping, hoping that it is the same as it was whenever it was.  Of course, now it's growing back in white so it's hard to tell if it's growing in or not.  Panic Panic Panic.  And that of course makes the stress level higher and it might be the stress level causing the hair loss and  - - - I could go on and on and - oh well.  God is in charge and I trust in Him so all will be well no matter how much hair I have.

I must now walk the girl and I have to put a hat on and that makes me crazy since when I take it off the static hits and the scalp shows and I ---never mind.  Have a good one and pray for hair growth.

Something to Warm You on a Cold Winter Day

Is this the cutest thing you've seen today or what?  Who knew that a baby hippo could be so adorable?

Another ZooBorns moment - whenever the day is cloudy and gray I take a trip over there and never regret it.  They should pay me for referrals shouldn't they?  Well, they don't and they won't and that's all I have to say about that.  Except, you should go see

And now for something else sweet.  Received in an email

A Nativity Scene was erected in a church yard. During the night the folks came across this scene.

An abandoned dog was looking for a comfortable, protected place to sleep. He chose baby Jesus as his comfort. No one had the heart to send him away so he was there all night.

We should all have the good sense of this dog and curl up in Jesus' lap from time to time.
