We had to put Christmas sort of hold around here, as petcretary had to be at her work that day...she hopes she brought in some holiday cheer to the little old peeps she was taking care of...cvovid or not, they still need to be looked after in all their daily doings.
But she did get the trees up, and their lights are so pretty, including the very old ceramic tree that came from our Granny's home.
Well, we got a lot of email cards and many snail mail cards too! Thanks to all of you who sent them to us, we loved them! We didn't send any by snail mail this year...maybe there might be new year's cards for some of our friends and relatives who don't use computers...
On Christmas Eve Pawppy came home from some errands, looking rather glum and upset...the insurance dudes came and took another look at his car because the shop said it needed way more work than what the insurance was going to pay...anyways, they deemed it a total loss. Sheesh:(
Merry Christmas?? OMD:(
So now he has to get out all the accoutrements of several years out of his car, and then bring back the rental car. all on the same day...sigh....which means petcretary's day off will be spent being a taxi once again...as then he will have to go car shopping. Of course he won't get nearly enough from the insurance to get a car of his heart's desire, but there are a few in nearby towns he was checking out online. And of course in Michigan, one can't sue the at fault driver to recoup the difference for getting another vehicle...at least he wasn't injured and that is the main thing to keep in mind.
Well, then it was the (not) Christmas, and the snow came down too, so pawppy didn't dare to go out in that either,, so he missed the church service...sigh...since he still uses a cane, and his right leg is still weaker than the left, he didn't want to risk slipping and falling.
Then it was Boxing Day! And hooray petcretary was off! We had her here all day!
Being as *she* is a transplanted Canadian, she will always call Dec 26th, Boxing Day!
Dec 26th was also the birthday of our granny, Pawppy's mother.
And Dec 26th, 2004, was also Angel Pipo's Birthday...he would have been 16, this year...sigh...sniff...
By the time we get to post yet again,, it will have been Angel Minko's Birthday, too, his BD was Dec 29th, 2004...our two WeBeesSiameezers were like twins from other mothers! MOL!!
There was one day last week when *she* found a few moments to take some festive selfies of us, so we now present ourselves in red and green finery! BOL!
The next day there was about an inch and a half of snow! Perfect timing:)
|Sorry, I am a wee bit out of focus...|
|It WAS very windy so my hat blew off, honestly!|
|But mine stayed on! BOL!|
Tomorrow, (the 28th) is Benji's Gotcha Day! Whoot! He's been here two years, now:)
He wasn't too happy with *her* on Saturday, though...he had dug out a mole and was playing with like a cat...but *she* intervened and rescued it and put it in a safer place outside the fence...and was hoping it could dig him/herself back into the ground where Benji can't reach it...he is obsessed with digging out those varmints, but in all honesty, their messy trails are way better than his huge cavernous digging exploits! Oh well, dogs will be dogs...got a love a good terrier...
|Happy (Early) Gotcha day, Benji!|
We also have a guest Selfie in holiday mode:
|Eddie, our Canadian Cousin.|
And since we likely won't post again till after New Years, we wish all our family and friends a very happy....yes a way happier and better year than 2020. Adios, 2020, we don't want to remember you with much kindness, BOL!
Happy New Year! Happy 2021!!
|We hope your 2021 year will be happy, safe and healthy.|
