Happy New Year

Mario and his squirrel buddy last winter right after a huge snow storm! The squirrel is trying to climb the screen door.

Happy New Year Dear Readers,

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas.   We sure did, and I'm sure the pounds have gone up on the scale even tho I'm afraid to get on the scale!  ha ha - There are somethings you just don't want to know.

New Year's Eve is now upon us.   Typically we would be going to a movie this afternoon, but the frigid air is moving in to Wisconsin, and neither Don nor I feel like leaving our nice warm house!   Now if that isn't a sign of old age, then I don't know what is.  We are getting to be old fuddy duds!   

We skipped out on the Christmas Day movie also because we were both so wiped out from a day and a half of Christmas.  We stayed, sprawled out in our recliners all of Christmas Day, once our daughter and son-in-law left to go to his parents around 10:00 in the morning.   This year I'm really seeing shades of my own parents when they were this age!   I vowed to myself then that it would never happen to me.   Famous last words............................!  I think I can blame the PD for this, unfortunately!

That's all she wrote for this time.   We want to wish each and every one of you a very Happy New year - one full of good health, happiness, and enough funds to provide you for all your needs.

Love to all,



  1. A very happy new year to both you and Don!

  2. Have a Happy New Year! All the best in 2013. Hope you have a better 2013 and can find meds to help you. xoxox

  3. Happy New Year Mary to you and Don!

  4. LOL! I think we all end up turing into our parents whether we want to or not. *grin*
    I cannot even begin to tell you how thankful I am I met you this past year. You have truly been a blessing in my life! Thank you, dear friend!
    May you and yours have a WONDERFUL New Year! *hugs*

  6. Dearest Mary, Don & handsome Mario,
    We are lucky our television is filled with tennis all preparing with various matches before the Australian Open and then there is my beloved cricket. To for the first month of 2013 I proclaim this to be the sofa veg-out so we can regain our strength and face 2013 fit an ready. Thank you for sharing your life with us Mary ... your bravery inspires so many of us.
    With love and xxx's
    Jane & Jessie
