More Talented Relatives

Merry Christmas

Look at this beautiful Christmas card I received from my cousin, Karen, who lives in Memphis, Tennessee. Karen made this card, and what you are looking at is the scanned image of her original water color painting that she painted right on the card. Believe me, the scan does not do it justice.

And look at this wood carving of Santa that Karen's husband, Pat, just completed. What a talented couple! I'm glad they are my relatives. But sure wished we lived closer so we could visit with them more. They might just teach me how to do water colors and to wood carve.
Hope everyone has a wonderful day. Be careful, whatever you do today. Remember not to rush, it's better to be a little late than to have an accident. Just take your time, and enjoy the sounds and sights of the season.

Quote of the Day

I don't care how poor a man is;
if he has family, he's rich.

~Dan Wilcox and Thad Mumford

Joke of the Day
A man goes on a business trip and leaves his cat with a neighbor. When he calls in to check on the pet the friend says 'Your cat died.'

The man is heartbroken, and asks 'Couldn't you have broken it to me gently? The first time I called you could have said 'The cat is on the roof' and later, 'The cat fell off the roof, and it doesn't look good'', etc, etc.

Well, he gets a new cat, and next time he goes away he leaves the new animal with the same neighbor.

A week later he calls him up and says 'How's my cat?' The neighbor replies, 'Your cat's fine, but your mother is on the roof.'

Hi Jim,
What a surprise to see your blog today...you flatter us with your compliments. Wish we lived closer too...but am glad that technology allows us to keep in touch even if we can't visit in person. Pat and Karen
