A sad, sad end to the year.  RIP, Lindi.

We finally saw a movie in 2012.  Went to see Lincoln.  Loved it.

It's so cold in the house I'm dressed in double layers, under a blanket and trying to type with mittens on!

Riding around in a deluge looking for houses decorated for Christmas.  (I don't know why I love this picture!)

This was going to be a picture of the beautifully lit houses in Davis. Instead it's a picture of our dead car.  Won't start.  We don't know why.

Walt decided to clean the floor of his closet today, and found this shoe.  When was the last time anybody in this house wore a shoe this size????

My Panera lunch with Ruth (I gave her the baguette!).  The black bean soup was amazing.

I can't believe I fell asleep and missed the 50 yard touchdown!

I didn't think dogs were supposed to SHED in the wintertime!

Shocked by the price.  I remember when it was <$1.00 a pound for ground lamb!  (Needless to say, I didn't buy any)

Getting into the Christmas spirit.  I made ginger cookies.

Patio of leaves left after leaves swept away.

He's been dead 26 years, but still Gilbert is finding parking for, in the rain, at lunch time, in a VERY hard to park area of town...directly in front of the door to the cafe where we were meeting for lunch. Thank you, Gilbert!

Took my friend Joan to the doctor and sat in the car reading until her appointment was over.

Our coffee maker died, so Walt went and got a new one.


After eating, Lizzie waits patiently to see if Polly is going to leave anything in her own bowl.

Phil sent this picture of Jeri and Lester.

Show #3 of 3.  I was VERY happy when the woman in front of me removed her hat, with the big feather in it!

I made this photo today to send to Josephat in Kenya.  He's an orphan and I thought I'd show him as a member of our family.

Sitting outside Joan's doctor's office, with my Kindle, waiting for her to come out after her appointment.

My new printer is dead.  It has a piece of paper caught in it and I can't figure out how to get it out.  Sigh.

Lunch on the drive home -- a 'Gandalf Gobble Melt" at Denny's (turkey, stuffing cranberry on pumpkin bread!)
