Today is my niece’s birthday. Have a happy one, sweetie.
Jeremy and Wendy are gearing up to head back to L.A. today–I will miss them very much but, may I say, our Christmas was truly a Norman Rockwell event. Jeremy’s folks, Pat and Sheri Crouch, were visiting from Port Orchard, WA, as were Wendy’s dad and stepmother, Rick and Kathy Miller, who hail from Montana. My mom, Hazel Bleecker Lael, of Choteau, Montana fame, rounded out the mottley crew. There was a lot of laughter, a lot of food, a lot of memories flying back and forth.
This blog was briefly interrupted so Bernice and I could go out for a short walk. With all the company and the excitement, we haven’t been able to meet our usual quota for exploring the Great Outdoors.
Tomorrow, I get back to work. Just between you and me, I can hardly wait.
