It Was A Wonderful Christmas

I had a great day on Christmas. It was quiet, the food turned out perfect and I got "stuff." The statues are of Buddha and of Morgana. Morgana is from Excalibur, she is Merlin's equal and Luther's daughter. The Concert for Bangladesh, was a surprise and a great gift. Aging myself here, I remember when it came out in vinyl and playing it to death. Mr. and Mrs. Smith is good, I watched it last night and really liked it. The kids got it for me because I wanted to see it at the movies but was too busy during that time. I got a couple of electronic toys which are pretty cool. An HP Pocket PC, which is wi fi so I can get online anywhere, anytime, and they got me a TALKING Pedometer. I told them the first time it calls me a fat ass, it's in the garbage. LOL. Then another surprise was the book Zen And The Art Of Knitting. I have been wanting this book for a long time and every time I got to Barnes and Nobles I read a little bit of it. About a week ago I noticed that it wasn't there and figured that someone had got it. The kids got it for me and were laughing their butts off at me because I was disappointed that it wasn't there. LOL. They also got me a new camera cases. So I did pretty good. I still have some Christmas money that I haven't spent yet so I have a little spending fun ahead of me.

Gunther had a wonderful time. He played in all the wrapping paper, and found all his toys and treats under the tree (and a few that weren't his)LOL. He got a new collar and leash for Christmas. I'll be posting some of his pictures on his blog in the next days or so.

I hope everyone had a great Christmas and you are making plans to have the best New Year ever! Posted by Picasa

I'm glad your Christmas was wonderful and you were the recipient of many gifts.

A talking pedometer.... that sounds interesting. Wouldn't it be fun if you could personalize it by programming different phrases.

Mine would probably say:
Get moving lardass! I can hear your thighs rubbing! You call that walking; a snail moves faster than that! I could go on and on.

Once again, glad you had a wonderful Christmas.
