As you know, dad and I like to sit together most early mornings. That's when dad gets his computer & blogging stuff done, and of course he needs my assistance most of the time.
On this particular Sunday morning we were posting our comments on all y'all's blogs, dad tapping away and me, well, doing what I do best, and I managed to get in some tantalizing chin scritches.
We apologize for the poor focus on this last one.
Either dad had had his fill of his maple flavored liquid jolt or the motion of him giving me my scritches caused the fuzziness. Here we are, almost a month past Christmas and as you can see their little Christmas shrub is still alive. Dad's oldest daughter sent out a Christmas package that should ordinarily have arrived in time for Christmas morning, but didn't show up until a few days ago. Luckily, the shrub is for year-round enjoyment, so they had a place to hang the grandkids' special handmade ornaments to display post-Christmas.
