Isn't he cute?

Leigh is very agreeable to some of my Photo Requests. He ,being a horseman, helped

this time, I'm sure. We were about a block up from the fish market in Puerto Penasco

in front of a store labeled "muebles". I know what it means, just wondering if any of

you do. The time of day could not have been better for the outcome of the previous

post's shot. We were in Mexico over the New Year holiday.

New Year's Eve we watched. . . . "Ghost town" which I LOVED. The

humor cracked me up. Be advised in the opening scene the main character is talking on

the phone to his wife (a conversation you can listen to with no concern) however when he then calls his realtor you might want to mute it and just know he cancels his deal with the

realtor. Also, towards the end of the movie when the dentist has a heart to heart with his

business partner. . . .some phraseology is used that totally describes him but is not

something you would necessarily want said in your home (you can listen until he is led to the dentist chair and asked to sit down). He is told by his partner that he is a total jerk and self consumed and no wonder he has no friends. . pretty much. I watched it 3 times. Laughed everytime.

To make the NEW YEAR memorable Trudy Rawlings, Lacey Rawlings and Shanlee Finch all jumped into the unheated swimming pool at the place were were staying. Well, I got in too but a little more slowly. We FROZE. Gave me an appreciation for those folks on the jetliner who were stuck in the river waiting for rescue. I thank them for the chance to travel to that beautiful place.

Post gift chuckles. ... . .

I already shared with you Sammy's confiding in me about future Christmas present desires. . . .Probably won't influence me much as there is quite a lot of comfort in knowing EXACTLY what the grandkids will be getting. Not such a bad thing for me to deal with. For our own children this year I tole painted quilting frame stands. Okay, I admit this is not a "hot' item on most people's want list but personally I have come upon situations when I really needed a set. . . . .so. . . . in case any of them are up against that "need" in the future. . . . . waa laa. . . .they are set.

+ + + + + + + + + a few interesting conversations are listed below+ + + + + + + + +

Thomas: (the Sunday following Christmas) Mother, I forgot to thank you for the quilt stands.

Becky: Oh, my gosh, he can't keep his hands off of them. . . .he's finished 3 quilts already this week.

+ + + + + + + + +

Donovan: (To Katie as he is looking in the back of their new truck, after receiving the "gift") Hey, Katie, what's with the fence?

+ + + + + + + + +

Bryce: Mom? Remember last year when you bought me ammo for my guns for Christmas. . . . .and then this year you got us those quilt stands? Well . . . . . . . . . .I just really like stuff for my guns.

+ + + + + + + + +

Love you guys. . . I will try to think of gifts next year from your perspective. . . K?
