Tuesday, November 13, 2012


Greetings, friends! I was on the phone a few days ago scheduling a doctor's appointment for Becky when I realized that Thanksgiving is next week! That, in itself, isn't a problem but that means Christmas is not long behind it! Thus, the Christmas Counter on my sidebar, to keep me on track!

Speaking of holidays and special days . . . today, Tuesday November 13, is my birthday!

What'll I do? Nothing special planned, except a chance to have ice cream with my favorite New England Patriots player, Julian Edelman, this afternoon! Last week he sent out a tweet saying he will be at an ice cream parlor this afternoon if anyone wants to join him.
(Here he is, on our fridge, being assaulted with My Little Ponies!)

I dunno - it's kinda far away, about a 45-minute drive, and the weather will be thunderstormy today. Maybe not. It takes half that time to get to the stadium if I want to (which I've never done).

Now, moving right along, I got this vintage 1942 Christmas carol book last year, and it has the best cover! Here's the front, back, and inside back covers. Feel free to use them!
