Tacky Holiday Thoughts

I've been slacking here. It seems that the days are flying by.
I haven't stopped long enough to hold a coherent thought, let alone a thought coherent enough to blog about.

So here are some semi-coherent thoughts. Sorry. It's the best I can do tonight.

The best holiday party we have is on Christmas Eve. We invite our closest friends and neighbors. (Glenn and Sue, Sam and Leslie, Lark, Keith and Bob)
Sue and Glenn moved here from Long Island. Leslie (originally from Long Island) was my roommate in Philly. Lark and Keith are our next door neighbors. Bob was our neighbor in the old apartment complex. (We helped him survive his divorce from Pam the psycho woman.)

All of these folks live close enough that we don't have to worry about them driving home intoxicated.

We've established silly traditions. One year we bought a totally tacky ceramic cowboy boot. We held a drawing. Bob won the first year. The winner takes the boot home, decorates it and returns in the next year. Bob added a bandana to the boot.

The Tilleys "won" the second year. Sue and Glenn added branches and Corona beer cap ornaments.

The Myers added a garland. Sam and Leslie added lights.

This year the boot came home. Our turn to decorate! We have a theme in mind and IT IS TACKY!

Stay tuned for some fun photos!

P.S. Please get on my case if I don't post them![

Yeehah! You have GOT to photograph the festive boot for us, Neetzy!
Have a wonderful Christmas!
As I've just asked Shazza to give you a big hug from me when she sees you I'd better take this opportunity to ask you to do the same to her.
Merry Christmas!

I will give her a big dive hug! We are meeting at the Michener Museum in Bucks County, PA (north of Philadelphia). I've never been there but I heard they have a wonderful collection of American Impressionist paintings.
I'll keep you posted.
Merry Christmas to you and your family.
