A warm Christmas?

I know this may sound outrageous to other New Englanders, especially after our never-ending snowstorms of 2014.....but I think it's too warm here for Christmas.

It just doesn't seem right.

Yes, I had had enough of snow last year, and yes, I like to keep my heating bill low, and yes, I like wearing regular shoes, rather than snow boots.

But here in Massachusetts we've been having temps in the mid 60s and no sign of snow in sight.
What's wrong with this picture?

I've been in Florida in reminds me of that.   Something is wrong here.
Santa can't deliver all of those presents in his sleigh with this kind of weather.  It's ridiculous to think that he would actually use a helicopter or some other form of transportation!

So....go ahead, have Christmas dinner with a kitchen window open.  Go for a walk with the family to prevent the extra pounds.

I'll be right here, gazing out my window -- and waiting.

Decorating for Christmas

This is the First Baptist Church of Dighton, and we were getting out all of the Christmas decorations last night and putting candles in the windows, etc... so I took a picture while we were working.

Out of the past....1970 to be exact

 I dug out these two pictures this past week; because my maid of honor's son, age 31, was up on my house roof, working on a chimney repair.  I hadn't seen him since he was 3 years old, and just re-met him because of needing work to be done.  I showed him the picture of his mother when she was young.
