Wrapping It Up

I am holding on to a thin ray of hope that I will still get to play golf today at Vaquero. The cold front that came through here a few days ago has returned as a warm front. Temperatures are supposed to be pushing 60 today. It's raining this morning, but it appears there may be a break until it comes more heavily later in the day. We'll see.

Last night I picked up on my Christmas tradition. I am the official gift wrapper in the family. Beverly LOVES Christmas, and so that usually means wrapping I won't even tell you how many gifts.

It takes me forever, since I want everything to be even and precise. I usually get out a folding table and set it up in the den and watch old movies while I wrap. That's what I did for a couple of hours last night.

Beverly, meantime, was in the kitchen baking for this weekend's open house. She has been slaving in the kitchen since Saturday,. But she absolutely loves doing that.

Tonight Beverly and I are going to take her parents out for supper. This is their 58th wedding anniversary! We told them we would take them wherever they wanted to go. Their choice? Casa Torres.

Wow - 58 years. What a wonderful example they are to all of us. What a blessing to your family as well! Their dinner choice is funny - I guess Casa Torres is right up there with the fine restaurants in Ft. Worth or Dallas, huh?!

That's what I was thinking.

FYI: The golf date has been postponed until next Tuesday.

We are so blessed to have Billie and Bobbie here in Decatur.
Btw, why today was too wet and cold for target shooting, it's just about perfect for duck hunting.
