For next year's list let's try for this one to make it:
"That is hitonious." Use it every day if you can, it might catch on!

Winter views from my Texas back porch -- midwest snow

Or why I live in Texas. On the golf course.

Take a close look here. Before you move on a golf course lot, read the fine print in the club rules. "Golfers are responsible for all windows they break." When we came home from church, one of the back windows looked like this. Do you thing anybody left a note or notified the pro shop? Of course ____.

Saturday morning after a nighttime storm with a couple of inches of rain.

Sunday morning, not a cloud in the sky!

Monday morning with frost on the golf course. Temps got down to 26, the lowest of the year so far.

Nebraska on a snowy morning. Temps were not cold this day, they were in the upper 20's.

Jim W. did the driving in his car today. I am out of practice getting through the falling snow. We had to stop two times to clear the windshield wipers.

Up the street from the Blair (Nebraska) MacDonald's on a snowy morning. We would end up with about six inches before the snow stopped coming down.

The next day was the day of the farm auction. The roads were clear and everyone who wanted to come was able to get there.

Good golfing weather this week! I may go Thursday, Mrs. Jim has today and Friday

And this is my commandment, thaty you love one another just as I have loved you. John 15:12

Went to this wedding yesterday

From the Bride and Groom:

We are blessed and honored that you are here today to celebrate our marriage.
We hope you have a wonderful time and look forward to sharing many more happy occasions in the years to come.
It is our prayer this afternoon that you would see Christ's love today and always.
To our parents, thank you for the love, guidance and support you have given us over the years and the examples you have been for us.
We are blessed to be your children, and we love you forever and always.
Love, M and W

"And this is my commandment, that you love one another just as I have loved you. John 15:12"


The get-away car

The atrium of our church


The reception

[Not everyone
was here yet.
We sat on the
right side.]

End note: Everything was lovely, everyone was lovely; I didn't notice any glitches. The bride and groom are in St. Lucia today, both mothers and fathers were in church this morning. The wedding was well attended, guesses were around 500. Don't you just love those Christmas time weddings?
