The simple pleasures of home shine brighter
when the spirit of God intertwines our hearts
with His gentle Joy.

Is This New Year's Eve Material?

Dear Ones,
Living on the lonesome prairie one does not lead a normal life, when you're married to The Highway Man. "Mr. Ed" is the supervisor of the night~shift for K. D.O.T. in a large metropolitan area,  which means when he isn't working 12~14 hour shifts during our inclement winter weather, he's sleeping. Before this career, he was 24~7~12 career man with the U.S. Army. So~o~o . . .I have no clue what normal people do on New Year's Eve! ! !



What you're about to read is last year's e~mail to a very dear friend. Only the name of my friend has been changed to protect her identity.


IS THIS NEW YEAR'S EVE MATERIAL? ? ?              
Thursday, December 31, 2009 4:28 PM
Dear Friend,
Since "Mr. Ed" and I don't know what a 'normal' New Year's Eve is.
I'm wondering. . .
Is this New Year's Eve material? ? ?

I went to Wal~Mart to pick up my DH some Alka Seltzer Cold Plus,
per his request! ! !
While I was there, I thought I'd do some shopping for New Year's Eve.

Here's what I bought:
*Stacy's Pita Chips (I've been looking for these for a month!)
*Canada Dry Ginger Ale (We'll drink it straight, not mixed)
*Two cans of Pringles Potato Chips (Regular and Sour Cream)
*Vanilla Bean Ice Cream (to go with your dessert in a cup)
*Four candy bars (Two Snickers & Two Three Musketeers)
*Quaker Rice Cakes (Caramel flavor). . .and. . .
*A Romantic Homes Magazine (February Edition)

Again, I'm not sure what the two of us will do this evening. ..
but. . .
I'm afraid if we eat all of this in one evening. . .
we will BOTH need to take the Alka~Seltzer
and go to bed early. . .
witha stomach~ache. . .
BUT. . .
then we'd miss the whole thing. . .

SO. . .
I'm thinking. . .
We'll eat the T.V. dinners instead
(oops! forgot to tell you I bought Maria Calendar's Beef Tips)
make your dessert in a cup. . .
have it with the ice cream!
later. . .
maybe a few Pita chips and a glass of ginger ale. . .
to welcome in the NEW YEAR 2010!

I'll let you know how this whole New Year's Eve thing pans out!
See you soon!

Love,
Pat
P.S. Oops! Almost forgot. . .Have a Happy New Year. . .
        from Our House to Your House! ! !

Present day. . .
I do hope this brought a chuckle and a smile to your face! "Mr. Ed" and I had a wonderful New Year's Eve in 2009 and hope to do the same for 2010! This year we'll be viewing his birthday gift movie ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS.


I'm sure there's a scheduled Checker's Tournament Match. . . 



provided, that is. . .
if it doesn't snow!

                     . . . to all of you in blog land

Happy New Year 2011!

Until next time. . .
