Hi Pauly, What did you get for Christmas presents this year? It really got cold tonight. This morning it was pretty windy and grey but the sun broke through. I thought that it would calm down and be a nice sunny day, but no, it got freezing cold and more blustery. When I walked out to the car it was black night already at five o'clock. Stopped at the store to buy some gloves. My hands were so cold I couldn't wait. I got Zen a pink necklace, some fish treats and food and I also bought some leggings to wear underneath my clothes. Virginia is funny though, just when you think that winter is here then it gets to be 60 degrees again. I would like some snow. We had a nice Christmas. I barely got the decorations up in time. We were still putting up the tree on Christmas Eve and I started my shopping that day too! We managed to get everything done and had ham for Christmas dinner. My sister sent it for a present. It was really tasty and it was so huge that I have to freeze some and ate sandwiches for lunch this week. I got the best slippers ever. Big pink fluffy ones. I can hardly wait to get up in the morning to slip them on and the first thing I do when I get home is run for the slippers.
Zen is sure a nice cat. She never gets in trouble, she didn't even bother the Christmas tree. She is very cuddly and doesn't scratch. She is great, I am surprised that I like her as much as I like dogs.
I do want to get a dog again though.
Any plans for New Year's Eve? I think I am going to be snoozing. Take it easy. Happy New Year. Lots.
Hello Pauly. I cannot win. We said let us go and get a haircut. Day after Christmas no one will be there. Was I ever wrong the place was packed. Someone gave me scratch tickets. I won $40. Dinner was good. Lot of great gifts too much candy my favorite was 3 different size frying pans by Farberware. My old ones were a disgrace, The rain came down in sheets while we were in the barbershop. Making an overnight trip to Gainesville be home late tomorrow. Glad you had a good Christmas and a good dinner with your sister. I put on photos of the church and me squeezed into the pew,. Take good care. Your friend,Reed
Pauly, I am so sorry that you are feeling under the weather, excuse my pun! My best wishes to you for a very speedy recovery. Have a peaceful and blessed Holiday. My thoughts will be with you, and with the memories of your lovely Donna too. Lots.
Good Morning,Pauly. I am feeling much better and I hope you are too. A nice note from Kathy on My Page. Will be cooking etc tomorrow. Mass will be crowded so we are going at 4 today. The Childrens' choir will be there. Have you been invited out to Christmas dinner? I hope so. Are yoy getting those bad storms I see on TV? Take good care of yourself. Do not get any more colds. My BG 102. A most Blessed Christmas to you Pauly. Your friend, Reed
Oh my Pauly, I read that you were sick with a cold. I do hope you are feeling better by Christmas. I saw that you were featured too. How nice! How have you been? I went back to work, so I haven't been around for a while trying to get back into the 9 to 5 routine. It is nice to be back, but what a mess. I do hope I can clean things up and get them back to the state they were in when I left, and that was quite messy as it was! How are your BGs? I hope that they are not giving you any trouble while you are sick with the cold. Have a Merry Christmas and hope I talk to you soon!
Good Morning,Paul. I was up at 6. It is 36 degrees here, Cold for Flprida. I covered my plants. Russ was jittery. I think he is thinking how bad his looking and it really isn't. Tom wrapped gifts until midnight. Glad your cold is somewhat better but they do hand in. Drink fluids and keep warm. My big event today is grocery shopping. think i will marinate a boneless roast of pork for Christmas dinner. Keep warm. Did you get any of that snow? Take good care, Your friend,Reed
Good Morning, Pauly. Boy did it rain last night then a cold front came in. It is 40 degrees. I heard from Kathy MY PAGE she will be in Rehab for a while. Sorry you still have the coid..they seem to hand on. You are doing the right thing resting and drink plenty of fluids. I go to the foot doctor this afternoon. Then no more doctors this year. They reconstruct Russ's nose Jan 2 he will be glad about that. BG 108. Take good care of yourself. I care. Your friend, Reed

Rest drink plenty of fluids. I hate a cold. The house is all decorated. Now wrapping. Russ does that. No one would want anything I wrapped LOL. Tom comes tonight andwill be with us through New Years. Take care of that cold and get better soon. God Bless. Your friend, Reed
Good Morning,Pauly. I am happy you have an address for Kathy. It is a very cool morning here 45 degrees. We both slept well. Russ is happy to have all those bandages off. They do the final reconstruction Jan 2nd. My BG 106. Tops today. Last meeting of the year. House 86% decorated. Russ then needs to wrap gifts, All those gift baskets American Express must have caught it as they were not on my statement.PTL. Tom comes tomorrow and will be here until the New Year. Hope all is well with you. Any plans for today? Having a funny money auction at TOPS but I am not getting anything unless there is something outstanding. Have a great day. Your friend...Reed
Pauly, Scotty Johnson (have you met him? great guy, goes to the Minneapolis meetups when then occur) has heard from Kathy. She's at Methodist, seei f you can get a an address for us there. she's not ready for visitors but I'm sure a few will want to send her a card. they still dont know what is wrong. hope you are well.
Hello Pauly, Sorry I am late. Been like a one armed paper hangar. Got the tree. Tom put on the lights. Russ unwrapped the ornaments Tom put them on. Reed did the heavy looking on. We got our three ceramic trees set up. Then we went shopping. Tom will leave 5 in the morning for the Marathon in Jacksonville. So we are going tonight to 5PM Mass. Kathy is in the hospital. Cannot figure out what is wrong with her. Read MY PAGE. BG good. Hope yours was too. Wasn;t that shooting horrible? Those young kids who survived will be in such trauma. Hope you are having a good day. Take care. Your friend,Reed
Good Morning Pauly. Been up since 6. BG 104. Russ has still many appointments on his nose. They have not started the reconstruction yet.Our Christmas party at Applebees so/so. My meal not so hot. Christmas seems to have arrived so fast or amI too slow? We plan to get our reakl tree this morning. Gifts bought but not wrapped. We will get it done. Still have not heard from Kathy...something must be wrong as sghe wrote me every day. Glad you had a good time at the Christmas party. Has the snow gone? Take good care. I care. Your friend,Reed
GoodMorning, Pauly. Dark dreary cold rain here. Did you get all the snow shoveled. That is a lot at once. I go to the urologist today. He never finds anything wrong so I hope that is the case today. I am worried about Kathy. I have not heard from her in 6 days. Mosty unusual. I hope she did not have a relapse. Hope you are doing well. What are your plans for today? I have to work in the laundry somehow. Take care and have a good day. Your friend, Reed
