|Christmas cards getting harder and harder to write|
In our household things seem to come back and haunt me. That was the case the other day when the betterhalf announced she was going grocery shopping and needed the car to do the shopping as well as dart around Aurora on other chores. I told the betterhalf, “Don’t take the Buick because I just washed the car and don’t want to get it dirty.”
As she opened the door and exited the household, the betterhalf shouted back, “Don’t use the toilet because I just cleaned it!”
Chalk up another zing for the betterhalf. Life tends to get tougher for me each year.
If you haven’t noticed, shopping for LED lamps is like an old fella buying green bananas. You stand the chance of never seeing another light burn out. Still, I nearly wiped out a $20 bill for an 800 lumens LED that has a life of 22.8 years based on three hours daily. I recognize I’d probably not be around in 22.8 years to see if the guaranteed 22.8 years can be fulfilled. But just in case, I saved the box and receipt if that LED fails.
We also seem to have a lifestyle here a home that is best seen in the newspaper comic pages. Comic strips like Pickles, Shoe, The Pluggers, Blondie and Hagar the Horrible all represent the betterhalf and me pretty well. Thank goodness we haven’t become an example for Doonsbury and still can find time to laugh at ourselves!
On a serious note and week early, we extend to each of you a very Merry Christmas and hope your holidays are filled with happiness. We hope all of you recognize the true meaning of Christmas and are able to find peace and joy in your lives throughout the year.
Merry Christmas everyone!
