Merry Something


Merry Christmas. 

I hope all is well with you and your family. 

I’ve been avoiding blows to the stomach and have been standing

for periods of ten minutes or more without problems, so things

seem to be on the up and up. 

Next week husband has an interview in Madison. 

I have been helping a friend with his contracting

business(tiling, drywall, painting, too many safety meetings).


Daughter has her Christmas concert tonight. 

I put a little tree up and there are three presents.


Its an odd time now.  We don’t if we are moving or robbing a bank 

(ha.. not so funny after its done… help I’ve been shot). 


This year has tossed a few white elephants up on top of us.

My brother Matt has psoriatic arthritis, which is genetic, and painful. 

My brother Peter is recently married and is preparing for his next tour of duty in Afghanistan.

 grandmother is on her deathbed. 

 mother is going to Russia to feed orphans for the Holiday. 


So I don’t know where I will be or what I will do for the Holiday,

but know without a doubt I will be thinking of you, and hoping

that you are surrounded by love and joy.  


The months roll on dear friend, and I grow strange and lonely. 

O, life is hard.   It is all nuts and sawdust. 

I hope to see you, and put my fatty arms around your choppy

body.  Wishing you pie, meat products, and old wine.
