At times we want the other guys job,

 Automobiles of importance:


The Hydrogen car, I am not sure anyone is working on this any more. I think this is the BEST shot as saving our resources. The car that runs on water!

Now for today, ever want someone else's job?..

A few times I have allowed myself to get stressed. At those times I wanted to move so far back in the hills they would have to pipe in sunshine (A saying I have heard).

My son Mark was a builder bigger houses different from his dad, steeper roofs and a lot of roof lines. NOT my cup a tea. But at times he would be frustrated and he would say, “I want one of those Stop and Go jobs.  You know the guys who work each end of road construction and turns that sign to go and stop when he is told to. That is all he is responsible for.”

Most of us when getting in a bind, maybe a little behind, etc have wished for that job of sweeping the floor. Or working in the candy factory.

I think that is normal, but over the years some of us learn to roll with the punches and others of us, do not. Sometimes we feel like the famous scene in ‘I Love Lucy’, where she is working at a candy factory on an assembly line and could not keep up.


I hope you all are having a great Christmas season. Let’s not get stressed. Just remember the reason for the season. His Birth:


“For unto you is born a Savior”

The ‘Wise Men were not at the Manger in Bethlehem. They came much later. It doesn’t bother me when they are depicted at the manger to worship, because they did come a great distance to worship.  It is possible they started following a star the day he was born.

Merry Christmas to everyone who has time to read this. Relax, love and appreciate the time.


PS: Don't you love the smell of baking? Sherry baked a Raw Apple Cake and a pone of cornbread for her dressing. Enough for me to have cornbread and milk for dinner.  Whoopee!

Merry Christmas Sherry and Jack! I think every job has its ups and downs, even the ones that look "super easy" to do.

Hope you guys have a great day!

I'll never forget, after making a comment how 'easy-peasy' brick laying looked, my former husband handed me a trowel and said, "Go for it.". Perspective bites sometimes! I hope you two enjoyed a sweet Christmas!

Merry Christmas to you and Sherry! I hope you had a wonderful day and enjoyed this special time of year. I used to joke about to leaving surgery to work in the cafeteria. When Covid hit and surgery was closed I went and worked for a week in the cafeteria and worked my butt off! I got an education and appreciation of hard they work. I was happy to get back to surgery!

Merry Christmas, we celebrated mine yesterday, yep I baked a spiral cut ham and turkey breast with all the fixings. My latest new recipe is Corn Pudding, it's like cornbread but jazzed up with sour cream and Mexican cheddar, YUM! Juanelle made sweet potato pie, more YUM!!! I gained another five pounds...oh well. New Year's resolution upcoming. Love and hugs from Chilly Chobee!

It indeed, has been a different kind of home Christmas. We saw Andy's family, had phone calls and emails from the rest of the crew. We did spend Christmas Eve and Day at the farm celebrating quietly with Mama and a few siblings. The smells and flavors were the same but so quiet, we could almost hear the cattle lowing. Definitely, we heard the birds singing. It was a beautiful, grateful celebration of the Birth of our Savior.
loven'hugs from the north winds and snow covered Christmas. Life is good.
