I'm Wicked Busy Today

December 11, 2018

Good morning.  Tis sunny and the temperature is sixteen F degrees, with hopes of getting as high as thirty seven degrees later today. 

Well, I tried uploading a video first thing this morning, and it worked!  So I'm posting a video right away.  This one is of Paris, the owner of the Cabaret, singing Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas.  Thanks to this wonderful lady, we all get to enjoy ourselves with an evening of good folks, good food and the awesome Starliners.

It has abruptly hit my brain that Christmas is only two weeks away.  This can't be!  I still have so much to get ready for the mail.  So, I guess that today I shall be busy all day trying to accomplish this very task. 
Hopefully, I'll be able to make one trip to the Post Office later today when Joe gets home from work.  I'll need help carrying things into the Post Office.   I have a couple more things to wrap and the biggest box will be ready to go.  I don't think I've ever been this late with my mailings before.  Maybe next year I should hire someone to come wrap things for me.  (Wow!  What a great idea!)
Daughter Audrey sent me the cutest photo of Alena and Santa Claus.  This is beautiful, Audrey.  Thank you for sharing.  
Daughter Deanne came by yesterday afternoon and helped me a bit to find my way around Facebook and YouTube.  I don't know why I have so much trouble with these two, but I appreciate all the help I get. 
A few days ago, I was looking for a photo and I came across a rather old memory.  Do you remember (many moons ago) the milkman delivering milk right to your door?  Well this is a photo of our milkman, George, and the little boy (Lenny) who lived across the street.  The photo was probably taken in 1954 or 1955.
I'll have to dig out more of my old photos to post here because I want to leave a lot of these old memories for my family.  Once they are on my blog, then printed to books, they are history. 
I'm thinking ahead to New Year's Eve, and I think my resolution for next year will be to start doing some new fun things before getting busy on new projects.  Things like drawing, painting, making music CD's (for me) and whatever other mischief I can think of. 
I think today I can let Pogo use my laptop to order that surprise gift for me.  It will be a combination Birthday/Christmas gift.  He won't tell me what it is so I guess I'll just have to wait till after Santa comes by on Christmas Eve.
Now I think I need to get busy here.  I want to have some boxes ready for mailing later today.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
