Ahhh, Christmas time with family was AWESOME! We had lunch from Culver’s and then we opened gifts. Dad, his wife, and my sister got a quart of pickles for the holidays. The pickles were homemade dill pickles by a neighbor who personally takes the time to make them. We call him “Mr. Pickles” and he was in the paper one day a couple of years ago in regard to pickling pickles. It was a very big article about him, too. He goes out and sells his pickles somewhere in Janesville practically everyday with someone who helps him get around. I ended up getting a Pur water filter system for my faucet and a couple of filter replacements, and twin bed sheets for my bed that practically match my curtains in my bedroom now. I could not have asked for more, and of course some money to spend on things I do not need, lol. It was a fine time for Christmas with the family. Now I have the rest of the day to myself. I think I am going to sit down and do some reading while Bing Crosby the cat is napping on my chair under the table.
