.......


AH, THE TWINKLING LIGHTS!  It's been such a busy five days since I last posted, Reader Dear, but I can assure you...

video  ...you were always on my mind.
 I just felt I had no time to tell you about it!   I may have been Christmas shopping. I may have been sitting in the parking lot of the Barnes and Noble store, listening to You Were Always on my Mind. (Hmm.  I could just as easily have been eating chocolates and chatting on the phone!)
...... 

It's amazing how ornamentation takes one's mind off the misshapen aspects of one's tree.  Hanging all those (actual) twinkling lights and doo-dads was such an enjoyable process, at any rate, so why not let myself get carried away?!

And oh, I had fun with that annual artwork production, too.



 ......
There I was, standing in line at the post office, and up popped a cute little twinkly coincidence..."My birthday's tomorrow!" said Corinna, the one wearing the fake nose.










"Well, my goodness!" I told her, "so is my friend's birthday tomorrow!  This present is for her.  She's a little bit older than you , but she doesn't have a mustache!"  I thought a bit while Corinna licked the lollipop she'd gotten at the bank along with the fake nose*. Then I added, "My friend's going to get a late present!"

*(Banks, my dear reader, can be ever so generous.  Just the other week my bank offered up quite a spread of sugar-laden sweets.

The fellow patron who was cutting himself a hefty hunk of cake divulged to me that he is diabetic.  "I eat this stuff when my wife's not with me,"  he whispered.)









.......



Then there was lunch and shopping with friends.
Twinkle!  Twinkle!
.....
And a super supper with these three little girls (The Yard Man and I were hosted by Victoria and Amelia's mom and dad)!

 .....

And can you believe it?  The buttons delivered!!  (You may wish to hie yourself to the nearest J. C. Penney Store, Reader Dear, where you might be able to button up a deal of your own!)

congratulations

Maybe no mustache, but horrifyingly, this random boar bristle that sprouts from my chin.

Now I must head out to sit in the dirt beside the mailbox and wait. Is the one with the red cherries and orange leaves for me?

Er, uh, Anony...it's all Greek (aka Russian) to me! Q.

ShirleyK said...

I sat there and sat there and nothing came! All I got for it was a cold butt!

ShirleyK said...

Wa-a-a-a, I'm lonely for my package.

Wow, this must be what it's like having Twitter. A person can just keep updating the world.

KTdid said...

Yes, go on twittering---(you know I love comments, good,
bad or crazy)!

ShirleyK said...

Rats. I can't sit out today, keep up my vigil. Gotta get ready for dinner guests and go to my office party.

ShirleyK said...

That one got overlong. (How many characters?)

KTdid said...

ShirleyK, I'm happy you did not spend two solid days sitting in the dirt beside your mailbox! I fear in that case the package arrival could be seriously anticlimactic!
(And you know how the USPS sometimes creeps! It could be days and days!) Q.

ShirleyK said...

It's here! It came! Red cherries and orange leaves! Company's soon coming, though. I'll let it in sight, whetting the curiosity. . . Back later!

ShirleyK said...

Well if this isn't perfect. The indulgence!

(Not to mention the music flooding from the jukebox.)

Happy birthday to me!

I have such a friend.

ShirleyK said...

Thank you!

KTdid said...

(Pretty sweet jukebox, eh? I'm glad it worked for you!)
You're welcome!
