I would like to thank Terry's blog today. It tells wonderful things about me. I am sure I don't deserve every nice word she has said. THANK YOU, TERRY. Go read it if you'd like. She is a very nice, hard working lady, full of encouragement. Example: never forgeting special things, like birthdays, that she has picked up on.

It's lovely weather — Six Word Saturday

but not for a sleigh ride. Dr. John has his Pigeon Falls people all psyched up for theirs.

Now for my twelve words: (I couldn't make up my mind so there are two sets)

Yesterday was nice for a walk

A good day for golf too

Now for some walk pictures. Mrs. Jim did the golfing, Adi and I were out walking after she let us off at the pro shop.

I let Adi pick our route. She likes the au naturel places.

We went across the road and out of the wilderness. This tree is in the newly opened section. There are still some lots for sale.

Getting here, up out of the creek, I found out I had lost my sunglasses. Backtracking didn't help to find them.

These ladies were about to shed their jackets. Mrs. Jim was playing (none of these here) and she got really warm. Adi and I did not overheat but I did loosed the snaps on my jacket.

Adi wanted to get her picture taken with the antique santa display. She did herself proud, you might want to look at her on 'extra large' picture.

Adi likes to play in the leaves. There were better and larger piles but I liked the fall looking trees by the yellow house.

Where do you think this man was blowing those leaves and grass clippings?
My guess was the street but he said he never put leaves in the street and besides what business was it of mine. I would have been nice if I had been him and said "it sure is easier to pick those leaves up out of the street rather than from my yard or the steep driveway." Oh well.

Our last stop was at our house. Here are the recycled soda cans we put at the curb when we got back. The recycling fellows had already come for their pickup.

We put them out later so that some of the working fellows who recycle for profit or extra income can get our cans. It is still recycling but someone gets to sell the cans instead of us giving them to the 'company.'

First Visit With Santa -- Ruby (Red) Tuesday -- Ho Ho Ho

Breakfast With Santa
The Jim Bunch Eats Again

[large picture] [extra large]

Had you ask, we would have said there would be a seventy-five percent probability that KP would smile at Santa. Of course that left 25% for crying and other.

I would have been comfortable with that because Lauren seldom cries, her laughs outnumber the cries about 90 to ten. She is a happy child, she takes that from my side of the family. I dare say though, that sometimes when I smile I am not laughing at all on the inside. 'Nuff said.

After the nice visit mother wanted to be in the picture with Santa.

Karen still makes her Santa list. At her age some don't.

Her tastes became too rich for us so we made her to be on her own. So she got educated good and got a really good job. Now between her and Santa this little Momma doesn't hurt for things.

No Christmas is complete without a 'generations photo.'

This is ours. Doesn't Mrs. Jim look proud!

And KP is so photogenic. She will rival Adi for that.

BTW, Adi and Katrin spent the night before as did Mrs. Jim and I. A surprise picture is coming about that (this and that post).

Did someone ask about breakfast?
Yes, we had a very nice breakfast at Billy and Karen's golf clubhouse. Billy was out playing golf right after the Santa visit. He had an egg taco before to help him keep his two handicap.

I started mine with a two egg omelet complete with everything on the table except jalapenos. That meant bacon crisps, ham, tomato pieces, green and red pepper pieces, mushrooms, and two types of cheese went in to accompany the eggs.

On that plate I had some hash brown potatoes and red and green peppers, some crisp bacon, and a sausage patty. On other plates I had waffles with fruit, whip cream and maple syrup, and bacon. I had two of those, one half waffle at a time.

There was the desert plate after that with more coffee. My desert was a Southern biscuit with white gravy on one half and strawberry preserves on the other.

Afterwards I looked about as satisfied as KP. I even had a little nap while Mrs. Jim drove us (the four--Mrs. Jim, me, and Adi and Katrin) home.

Adi and Katrin had very nice doggy bags for a mid morning snack. We always do that when there is a buffet.
