SANTA GIVES ELLA A HIGH FIVE
If we didn’t have bad weather days how could we really and truly appreciate good weather days Imagine living under clear blue warm skies 365 days a year. How absolutely boring would that be. If I have to suffer through some bad weather days to fully appreciate and be grateful for those those great warm sunny days then so be it.
LAKE HURON WATERS WERE MUCH CALMER TODAY

IN A COMMENT ON MY NOVEMBER 14TH POST IN REGARDS TO THAT MIST MACHINE AT BOTTOM RIGHT MR. ED SAYS, “BECAUSE THE PRODUCT IS FLOWING INTO THE SHIP THE MIST IS USED TO DAMPEN THE STATIC ELECTRICITY AND IF THE PRODUCT IS GOING THE OTHER WAY IT IS ALREADY GROUNDED”…. WELL THAT’S WHAT HE SAID:))
Despite our temperatures hovering just above the freezing mark today it was still Okay to be outside scratching around in the yard. With no wind and as long as one was dressed accordingly it wasn’t too bad at all. Pheebs and I even took ourselves for a pleasant walk around the Pine tree trail and were lucky enough to get caught in a few momentary slivers of diffused sunlight.
‘OMG’ A DRIZZLE OF SUNSHINE
PHEEBS IS MESMERIZED BY THE TREE SHADOWS
HAD A FEW DARK-EYED JUNCOS IN OUR FRONT YARD THIS AFTERNOON
EVEN MANAGED TO GET THE SHADOW COWBOY IN THIS ONE
ALL THE TREE LEAVES ARE PRETTY MUCH ON THE GROUND NOW
With company on it’s way this afternoon Kelly got into the Christmas Spirit and out came 3 bins of Christmas decorations that have been sitting underneath our unit now for the past 11 years. Pulled out a few things and quickly had them up on our front porch. Thought it would be nice for little Ella when she gets here to see a few sparkly Christmas lights.
PHEEBS WATCHES INTENTLY AS KELLY PULLS A FEW DECORATIONS OUT OF A BAG
A FEW HASTY DECORATIONS UP AND MAYBE WE’LL PUT MORE UP LATER
Rebecca, Ricardo, and little Ella rolled in about 5:40 and a nice home cooked Christmasy supper was waiting for them and what a yummy supper it was that Kelly had whupped up. And pecan pie for dessert:))
After supper we all piled in a couple cars and headed for downtown Bayfield to see the lighting of the lights in Clangregor Square. Kelly, Pheebs, and I led the way in the Jeep. A lot of cars and people there and we had to park a block away from the Square. Sure was feeling cold though but at least it wasn’t snowing or raining. Santa Clause arrived by a big red fire truck and walked right by us on his way to his big chair on a Gazebo. Ella even got a high five from Santa going by. Because of the cold we all decided to head back to our vehicles and do a drive down main street and look at the lights. Sure was nice getting back into a warm vehicle. We were all back home about 7:45.
THIS IS SANTA HIGH FIVING ELLA…….ELLA IS UNDER THAT PINK HAT TOP RIGHT
REBECCA, RICARDO, AND ELLA
GROANER’S CORNER: Joe Smith started the day early having set his alarm clock (MADE IN JAPAN ) for 6am . While his coffeepot (MADE IN CHINA ) was perking, he shaved with his electric razor (MADE IN HONG KONG). He put on a dress shirt (MADE IN SRI LANKA), designer jeans (MADE IN SINGAPORE) and tennis shoes (MADE IN KOREA) After cooking his breakfast in his new electric skillet (MADE IN INDIA) he sat down with his calculator (MADE IN MEXICO) to see how much he could spend today. After setting his watch (MADE IN TAIWAN) to the radio (MADE IN INDIA), he got in his car, (MADE IN GERMANY) filled it with gas(from Saudi Arabia) and continued his search for a good paying AMERICAN JOB. At the end of yet another discouraging and fruitless day checking his computer (Made In Malaysia), Joe decided to relax for a while. He put on his sandals, (MADE IN BRAZIL) poured himself a glass of wine, (MADE IN FRANCE) and turned on his TV (MADE IN INDONESIA), and then wondered why he can't find a good paying job in AMERICA.

Eighty-year-old Bessie bursts into the recreation room of the retirement home. She holds her clenched fist in the air and announces, “Anyone who can guess what’s in my hand, can take me out to dinner tonight!” A witty, elderly gentleman in the rear shouts out, “An elephant?” Bessie thinks a minute and replies, “Close enough!”
