Good morning. We are just not used to these cloudy cool days here. Ha ha, I know it’s winter time and I shouldn’t complain ... but I’d like my front door open! Where are you ๐ŸŒž? 

BeeZee and I enjoyed watching Caesar ... and the sun came out. His method is so simple, but foreign to us humans. Dogs only think in the immediate, whereas we humans anticipate what “might” happen in the future. It’s obvious when watching the show that our dogs pick up tension from us. 

Mark did a little work on the fire pit while the dogs and I played fetch with EE. BeeZee had a blast ... Robbie played too but it was obvious his mouth still hurt ๐Ÿ˜”. Later we had happy hour on the porch and the Scotties had their yogurt frosty treats. It was nice with a light jacket on. 

What are you doing for New Year’s Eve ??? Lew and Lynn are hosting a party; RanDawn are joining the festivities. We’re taking a hot buffalo chicken dip! Yummy. 

Tonight it’s “finish the carbs” before we begin 2 weeks of STRICT Atkins! Beef steak! Yum. 

Fries on the Pizzazz ๐Ÿ˜

More fries please. Ha.

Good afternoon! It’s a decidedly lazy day here after a late night. There’s always laundry and the like plus Mark took an eBay package to the post office. We sold some hubcaps for Lew that are going to the UK ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง. What an old GMC truck is doing over there is a mystery. 

It’s sure cold in Canada today ...

It’s “cold” here today, too. Well, 50F, but still ...

It’s perfect for a fire ๐Ÿ”ฅ 

How do I know it’s chilly outside? Marky’s wearing SOCKS! ๐Ÿงฆ

Good morning! Yup, Christmas has come ‘n gone. It’s over. ☹️ But ... Just 361 days til Christmas 2018. ๐Ÿค—

So, I put all the decorations away! ALL of it. Whilst I did that, Mark tidied the fridge then went grocery shopping. 

This evening we’re meeting RanDawn for dinner and a musical play in downtown Eustis. 

Fun at the theatre ... lots of belly laughs. Mark said he’d had enough corny humor for a lifetime. ๐Ÿคช

Randy was in stitches ... guess we’ll try another play one day. 

Tillie’s ... great service ... delicious food; and a short walk to the theatre.

Good morning ... it’s a damp, foggy start to our day with possible rain later er, like maybe midnight. 

Sue and Wayne were on the road about 10 o’clock this morning heading for home. What a fun Christmas we had and are so thankful we can all get together. Sue shared a few pictures they took ... here they are:

This was first thing Christmas morning ... Sue, Wayne, Mark and I opened our gifts ... with Mimosas!

The rest of the family arrived at 2:30 for more unwrapping!

The big opening ... Christmas Day.  ๐ŸŽ L-R Sue, Kris, Diane, Mark, me, Randy and Dawn. 

Wayne joined the picture. (Nicer pic of BeeZee on the barstool, Robbie under the table!) The kids had a half-dozen presents EACH. Spoilt huh!

The next pic was taken on the boat yesterday ...

Although it was cool enough, the sun was hot on my head ... Sue got Wayne to take this charming picture of yours truly.) ๐Ÿ˜‚ Sue was gettin’ even for the spear-chucker pic on yesterday’s blog. ๐Ÿ˜œ 

Chores accomplished, we watched Outlander on STARZ ... we’re hooked on it thanks to RanDawn. BTW, from hereon you’ll see code names just like RanDawn; see if you know who is who.
