I heard there was a special Christmas for some of our military. A few wives from Union made a trip to Germany to spend a few days with their husbands. The best Christmas ever!
This is the first vacation I’ve had since moving here. Three days off, for the past two weeks. And guess what I did and where I went. Nowhere! Monday and Wednesday’s my day off and Christmas and New Year’s Day just happened to be in between.
Okay, now I need to get back into reality, and go back to work. Well, I got the decorations put away ahead of last year’s schedule. Got the Christmas flowers off the graves before the season was over. Did not buy Christmas decorations at sale price, because I realized I really didn’t need them, and still have not found a use for last year’s sales. Is it the word SALE that makes us go crazy.
Not Home For Christmas
Well I found out that Ethan Turner did not come home for the holidays, like I said last week. But mom and dad made the trip to Ohio to spend the holiday with him.
Special Holiday Greeting
I heard that Ashley Robinson sent a tape to the First Baptist Church of Lockhart to surprise his parents with a special holiday greeting from London, England.
Home For The Holidays
Jada Thomason was home from Tennessee for the holidays. She’s in Diesel Mechanic School there.
I need a few estimates on putting a roof on my shed that is attached to my house. I want a metal roof to match my house roof, it’s light green. The size is about 6’ by 25’. I’ve had a few promises to do this for me, but no one will follow through. It started leaking when we had the last hail storm. I’ve been waiting all this time to get this done. Please, 545-6652.
New Year’s Resolutions
What about New Year’s Resolutions: They’re only to be broken. But I’m going back on my diet of Chicken Noodle Soup. It’s a new one that I made up, Chuck doesn’t think the soup and salad sounds good. But if you’re going to diet why not eat something that tastes good. So far I’ve lost 9 lbs. But holiday dinners was hard.
Visits From Santa
Did I mention the Santa that showed up at the Horseshoe Club last Friday? Santa showed up at my shop and a few houses around here.
One little girl wanted to show Santa that she was keeping her bedroom clean, that must have been the deal she made with her mother.
Santa almost got bit by Stevie’s dog. And I believe that Norma’s dog got the back of Santa’s leg.
Santa visited Brian Craig (to see if he’d been good). Laura didn’t know who it was but Olan knew. It was the same person that dressed up as Wynonna on Halloween. They had a lot of fun out of her at the club, as always.
A Definition Of Happiness
Happiness is having a large, loving, caring, close-knit family in another city.
An SUV For Christmas
In January, my wife, a physician, met with an elderly patient.
“So was Santa good to you?” she asked.
“Real good,” he said. “I got an SUV.”
“Yeah — Socks, Underwear, and Viagra.”
A Little Late
A drunk staggered into a bar shouting, “Happy New Year, everybody!”
The fellow closest to him said, “You turkey, it’s the middle of May.”
The bewildered drunk looked at him and cried, “Oh, my gosh. My wife is going to kill me. I’ve never been this late before.”
Winter has finally started. Have you noticed how frosted it is in the mornings. When is it going to stop being rainy? Cold and rainy!
This is the flu season, and it seems to be serious. Some are ending up in the hospital, and the rest are at home in bed. Of course I’ve had some really sick people in my shop, wanting to look perkier for the holidays.
I heard that Roy Parkins broke his hip when he fell out of a deer stand. I hope he gets on his feet real soon.
Mixed Up Gifts
Oh, let me tell you about a funny Christmas gift that Laura Dabbs gave me — her husband’s underwear. He didn’t have a name on it, but brought it in thinking it was a bag of potpourri.
Well, Christmas day I opened one of my daughter’s gifts — it was a 3-D movie, and I don’t even have a 3-D TV. Then I opened a gift from Chuck and she thought I’d opened another one of her gifts, it seemed we got the same thing from two different people.
There will be a seminar — Refuse To Be A Victim — the Town Hall on January 12 from 9 a.m. to noon. The price is $15 per person.
Well, it’s late, and this week I’ll try to pay more attention to what everyone else tells me so I can relate it all to you. But for now I’ll close, until next week. Good night, 545-6652
