From our family to yours, we wish you a very merry holiday season and a happy New Year.
Here in our house we begin our celebration on December 24th. We have a simple family dinner and open presents. We honor the rebirth of the God in the form of Holly King. And then we fade off to dreams while Santa comes to visit, we hope to leave us a few more presents.
The 25th is our day for fixing a big family meal. For us that’s honey baked ham, scalloped potatoes, corn on the cob, fried okra, country green beans, brown sugar BBQ beans, geenbean/mushroom caserole and homemade baked dinner rolls. Garrett is a fantastic baker! Oh and of course dessert, chocolate silk pie and strawberry cheesecake.
What ever you do during this time of year, we hope it’s a happy and joyous time. And that you find yourself in a healthy and prosperous New Year.
All I’ve got to say is, Go Skins. I’m too sick to care about football right now. But it’s Thursday, so I’m biting the bullet and getting my picks in before the Skins game. No big thought went into this week. I’m picking some upsets, going with some obvious choices and simply guessing on the rest.
I do think Romo being out will be a big hit to Dallas and with the way Atlanta is playing this year, I think the Falcons will have their game wrapped up. Some teams that should be winning, but are struggling I think will have a wake up call this week. That seems to happen in week 3 in past seasons. So I’m going with that on a few games.
Autumn officially begins this week and today’s weather is crisp and cool through most of the country. That’s football weather!
Opening week is in the books and I’m rather pleased with last weeks picks. But this week began before I had time to update my table and make my picks. But I did tell Evil before the game on Thursday that Denver would win. You’ll simply have to trust us on that one.
Actually I’m a little blah for football. NASCAR season has entered the playoff stage and that’s much more interesting. After attending the final race of the season here in Richmond, I’m psyched for the Chase and not ready for football yet.
However, the air is crisp and cool today. Reminding us that the year is waning and fall is here. So whither or not we’re ready for it, football has begun. So here are my picks for week 1. Continue reading →
I whisper it. I shout it. Near or far, They are the words that start my day. They are the words that end my day. . I remember the first time,
When some smarter and wiser part of my mind
First uttered them.
I meant them without even knowing in that moment. .
I say them often,
But do not imagine that they have faded.
They never mean less than
On that first time,
Nor in all the thousands since.
It’s been a tough few years in our house, thanks to the ‘great’ Recession. Personally I see nothing great about it. But the struggle and endurance prompted Sir Evil to write this about me. For some reason, I felt the need to share today. I guess maybe someone out there who reads his blog, needs to see it.
