Happy Day After Christmas, dear bloggers. I know I have been very lax in writing anything. This Christmas has been luxuriously different and I have no good reason for being a bum. (Ha, Ha -- this made me think of my Dad. He used the term "bum" in an unusually endearing way. If he sent a card to one of us, sometimes he would sign it, "Love from your old bum.")

Ken and I are staying home for the entire holiday. This is a first since I can remember. On Saturday we drove to Kent Narrows in Maryland to meet his daughter and son-in-law and grandchildren at a restaurant which is halfway for all of us. We had a nice visit. Other than that, we have not had to drive or fly anywhere. It did feel strange to not see Beth and Dale and my grandsons, but I was just there on Halloween and Thanksgiving. They gave us the BEST gift, though. A Webcam! It was pretty easy to install and we were able to visit via this on Christmas Day and also today. I think Beth and I will make good use of this. It is almost as good as a real visit. This was the best present.
Christmas Eve we went to church and Christmas Day I made the turkey and everything for the two of us. We were invited to have dinner with some friends, but opted to stay home - just the two of us -- and also, of course, the three cats and the poodle. It has been a very nice Christmas and I hope yours was just as nice.
Here is a picture of our little tree. I decided to get a real tree this year and saw this little one and since I love little trees, it was just right. She's a little crooked at the top and needed trimming, but she is what she is.
Since New Years Eve is just around the corner, I have added the new music. I hope you enjoy it.
I'll be spending tomorrow catching up on all of you!
