Ohai cataff! I was just sending you a msg when Bella came along demanding pets. When she was satisfied she sat down and put her paw on the mouse and your msg disappeared! I thing she wants to say hello.
Ohai, cataff! I see you faved my Feast of St. Stephen LoL. Dec.26 really is the Feast of Stephen when Wenceslas looked out his window. But I used a picture of my Prime Minister because he is sometimes not very nice to poor people.
Those two are always good for video opportunities; it's almost as if they play to the camera! Cataff, friends made sure that I didn't just knock around the house yesterday. They had me in their home for Christmas and it was a merry Christmas indeed! The man of the house is a veteran friend of mine - I homed two cats with him and got to see how happy they are in his house. I also got to see his daughter, whom I had not seen in six years and she's just as smart and sweet as ever. My friend's girlfriend is quite a woman and a good cook, too, and she made it her mission to fill me with home-cooked food and good wine (I had been skimping a bit on meals and not daring to drink while finishing the official formalities for the old soldier these past few weeks). I brought something for my buddy and a bag of presents for each of the ladies (we were all surprised when it turned out that I'd chosen things that each of them especially liked). We had a holly jolly time for over four hours. I did not overindulge, but since I'd had a couple of glasses of wine towards the end of dinner, my buddy was good enough to drive me home so I could turn in at my accustomed time. I think the old soldier would be proud to know that other veterans made sure that his passing certainly did not ruin the Christmas season for me. God bless us, every one! >lifts glass of Pennsylvania wine<
You're quite welcome; when Talking Animals gets a few more carol videos done, maybe there will be a compilation DVD. Yes, I am sure that the old soldier would have been surprised beyond all reckoning at that turnout! The time of year kept some from attending (he had friends in retail and government service), so it just shows that even though he was practically a shut-in towards the end, people did not forget him. One of his relatives who attended is in close contact with their family historian, so it was great to be able to hand his military items over to her and know that they would go where they belong. For me, this Christmas season has been full of chaos, but also full of closure and I think that the new year really will be new, in a way. Merry Christmas! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eRSe1zzAjxI
