Hey sweet Marie. Yes, Alison and I go way back too. Her husband is from Minneapolis. Thanks for the heads-up.
12 freakin' below here and I have to pick up a prescription and go for my INR test. Now my sis emailed me and wants me to go to this upscale grocery store near me and get some kind of cocktail sauce I've never heard of.........My nephew is coming to get me so I don't have to stand in the cold at the bus stop.
Enjoy. Next year will be better.

Hello Marie. How did you make out at the doctors? I have been busy doing this and that. Russ is wrapping gifts I did the laundry. He must have taken a big chunk out of my elbow as it is sore and aches. Seems to affect my entire right arm. Russ and I are saying now we are too old to do all this decorating but we have so many unusual things it is a shame not to use them. I just put up Father Christmas in his robes and fir coat.Sunny and 66. Most of your orders filled? I bet you get more for New Years. Give my best to Ed. BG102. Going now to drug store. Take care. HUGS,Reed

Good Morning, Marie. I had a good night. BG106. It was 41 this morning. Bright sun now. Did you get the expected snow? I imagine you are baking like crazy. Last night I blew a fuse and all the lights in the kitchen went out. I found the right spot on the fuse box and got them back on. I see the cancer doctor at 12. I wonder if he will open me up. It is my second time since he told me he did not get it all. What is he waiting for? I will let you know what he tells me. Take good care. My best to Ed. HUGS,
