    Janis,

    We hope everyone had a great Holiday, however you celebrate the
    season. Our family joined us, we ate a lot, laughed a lot
    and shared a lot. That was wonderful :)

    This time of year, D.I.E.T. stands for "Did I Eat That??" <G>.

    Santa didn't come to my place. He reportedly was going to "save the
    best for last". But, I sent him a card that said "Define Naughty". He
    had heard that "I had been good", but then he saw that card, had a heart attack, and died laughing. :P

    I spent Christmas Eve in the Emergency Room. My 92 year old Mom had
    tried to walk from a wheelchair (her dementia made her forget her leg
    muscles have atrophied), and she went down. She cut her lip, and got
    several lacerations. The nursing home called the ambulance, and had her
    taken to a Little Rock Hospital Emergency Room, to be sure she didn't
    break any bones or fracture her skull (both were negative). Then, I went
    over there on Christmas Day, and was there yesterday as well. I thought
    I'd have to take her a charger for her flip-phone, but it turned out the charger was still plugged into the wall outlet.

    It's about an hour drive each way, and I can't do it more than twice a
    week, as it devours the gasoline in the car.

    Hi Daryl,

    We hope everyone had a great Holiday, however you celebrate the

    and shared a lot. That was wonderful :)

    This time of year, D.I.E.T. stands for "Did I Eat That??" <G>.

    or.. "Did I Eat ALL that??" Lol

    Santa didn't come to my place. He reportedly was going to "save the
    best for last". But, I sent him a card that said "Define Naughty". He
    had heard that "I had been good", but then he saw that card, had a heart attack, and died laughing. :P

    Oh :) :)

    I'm still trying to catch up on so many things... geez your message was from around Christmas, sorry about that. Our house also gets a little crazy since Ron's 97 yr. old aunt lives with us.

    I'm glad that all was negative regarding anything fractured or broken. I know it is rough having someone so fragile around. We see it here as well sometimes.

    Hopefully she's doing ok now.

    Take care,

    Hi Daryl,

    Hi, Janis...

    This time of year, D.I.E.T. stands for "Did I Eat That??" <G>.

    or.. "Did I Eat ALL that??" Lol

    Never mind the classic Alka Seltzer commercial..."I can't believe I
    ate the whole thing!!". :P

    Santa didn't come to my place. He reportedly was going to "save the
    best for last". But, I sent him a card that said "Define Naughty". He
    had heard that "I had been good", but then he saw that card, had a heart JK>> attack, and died laughing. :P

    Oh :) :)

    Didn't bother me all that much. I wondered if he was short on
    reindeer. I saw a picture (likely photoshopped) of a young toddler, with
    a reindeer tied up. The caption said "Either give me what I want for
    Christmas, or I'm bumping off your reindeer team. Make it happen, Fat
    Man!!" <G>

    I'm still trying to catch up on so many things... geez your message was from JK>around Christmas, sorry about that. Our house also gets a little crazy sinc JK>Ron's 97 yr. old aunt lives with us.

    While my Mom is in the nursing home, and I'm here by myself, things
    get crazy for all I have going on.

    I'm glad that all was negative regarding anything fractured or broken. I kno JK>it is rough having someone so fragile around. We see it here as well JK>sometimes.

    None of us is getting any younger.

    Hopefully she's doing ok now.

    Well, she hasn't had to be back in the hospital for nearly a month
    now. I hope it stays that way.
