Here's To A Wonderful Year Ahead


There have been a lot of good memories in 2008, and although the last quarter of the year has been tough due to Big Bear's layoff from Avaya, we've been healthy and we have each other and, well, we're doing okay - for now.

Big Bear has been working in the garage and working on his bike.  Yesterday it was almost 70 degrees here in Charlotte and he really wanted to go riding.  Today, however, it is so cold I have 2 quilts over my lap and some fluffy socks on my feet to keep my toesies warm.  Oh, and of course a fire in the fireplace. 

Did you have a good Christmas?  Did you give and receive a lot of hugs?  Did you gain 5 pounds from all the good grub?  I certainly hope so.  We had a great day, and if I can figure out how to use my new Final Cut software to edit the video I took with my new Canon HD Video Camera, I'll be in business.  In the business of making better amateur home video. As in videos of Big Bear snoring in his favorite recliner, or our dogs Hannah and Adolf playing with each other, or better yet, video of Sarah and Matthew playing the piano and Glen playing the drums.  Maybe we'll call our kids the "Vaughn-trap Family Players" - get it?  The Vaughn-trap Family? ... ol, forget it.  I've seen "Sound of Music" way too many times.  But hey, what's one more time, right?

Obviously, I am short on material here, so I will leave you with this ...

Merry Christmas everyone!  Thanks for dropping by.  I think I'll go make some Raisin Toast with a mug of hot cocoa, sit by the fire with my doggies, look at the lights on my tree, and then take a nap on the sofa.  Nobody disturb me for about 3 hours, okay?  This is what I call my kind of day.

So kick up your feet and stay warm - or cool, depending on where you're at.  And while your at it, give someone a hug.
