I picked some pictures at random and ended up with mostly Matt Dillon Darnell.(He found a work boot of mine, yeah one time I did work) Here he is laid back at GRanma's house. A happy kid. Senior in HS next year. He was a star base ball player, but decided to get more interested in studies.

Here is Matt before that, He knew how to laugh! love that boy!

This was always a happy time, Reece, Ben, Josh & Steve. On ther concourse at the airport when Ben flew in for the summer. (I am sure Sherry will make sure I have named the twins correctly) Man how life flies. Reece works in Import exprts, Ben builds houses and has a beautiful daughter, the twins graduate from college this year. Wow Sherry is getting older! LOL


MERRY CHRISTMAS, this entry is made late. Just to show I can make an entry on Christmas DAy. We have had a great day. WE did neither of our planned options for eating today. Our former pastor & his lovely wife Juanita invited us for left overs. Their daughter Linda, was there. The food was good. Sherry made two salads to take.
Had a great time.
I have enjoyed reading Christmas Blogs. The entries today of note especially are for serious: Terri and her lovely mother Whats her name, oh yes, Debbie in the boondocks.
Light hearted Paula.

For a reality check, see, Randy.
Christmas reports see Lucy and Jun.

I am enjoying just celebrating life. Life is good.

A bean supper will be held on Tuesday evening in the church hall.
music will follow.
At the evening service tonight, the sermon topic will be "What Is Hell?"

Eight new choir robes are currently needed due to the addition of several new members and to the deterioration of some older ones.--------------------------

Awww that little Matt Dillion is so cute. Your book looks nice up there on your shelf. I took it with me today in case they were all watching football but It didn't happen. Our Christmas was nice but I'm not big on holidays. I like plain ole' Mondays and I like New Year's eve. In other words I like the hope of a new beginning.

Adorable kids. You know I was feeling so detached froim my family Christmas Eve. We were all right in that same room but every one was drinking their wine and having a ball and chattering away, some were watching football, and then I looked again with open heart and I swear I pulled threm all in to my being and everything was ok with the world.

so glad you had a great Christmas Day!!! Randy's was a good journal entry from yesterday; gave me some things to think about and re-focus on for the new year

Happy New Year!!!
