2012 In Review, Part 2

It got warm, and we prayed and reflected and planned.

Then it got colder, and we learned what “it sucked” REALLY means.

Big Little Jesus

A second gift post.  I’m feeling good, because we made the weekly hourly trip to visit Ike, and gave him his Christmas presents. Merry Christmas, buddy; we’ll get you home soon!

Playing hard, then soaking up as much water as possible into his mustache, before licking my face.

A Green Christmas

Heaven help me, I love this show.   It has to be one of the best conservative sitcoms of all time, the way it ridiculed bureaucracy, the idiots in charge of government agencies, etc.

Jazz Hands Christmas!

Not quite, but close.

Fred Waring Special from 1954.

Introduction by Ronald Reagan.

Decent music, but with dancers guaranteed to give you nightmares.

Or just creep you out in general.

Tis the Season

Benji Fleming of Minneapolis, creator of some beautiful ukulele and banjo music.


Apologies for my hiatus;  Been working; doing some serious rethinking and reworking of my life, and preparations.


Blessings and wishes to Glenn:  I know how it feels.  I only had 15 minutes to make the decision to put Patrick to sleep.  Harder than almost any human death I’ve experienced.
