The weather was unseasonably warm all day. Of course, the minute I got off work, it started raining and I wasn't able to go running. The girls went to their dad's house tonight, so after I finished picking one up from swimming and taking the other to show choir practice, I came home and had popcorn for dinner. I multi-tasked by eating it in the living room while watching Wife Swap and spilling my cherry Coke all over the couch.
Whew, it's a good thing I didn't post that, because letting the whole internets in on my Wife Swap addiction would have been really embarrassing.
Instead, I'm going to post some photos my mom sent her mom for Christmas around 1967 and I'll even add the text for good measure too, since I'm putting you through all this old photo viewing. Hey, at least these are seasonal...
Top photo text: S, Claus and Friend.
Billy was there too but he didn't trust old Santa very much so he stayed with Grandma and Aunt Merrilee. I kept Churlita* at home as I thought it might be just too much for her.
Second photo text: This was taken Christmas Eve at a neighbor of Maxine's.** He has a party for the neighbor children every year with Santa Claus as special guest. That's Jack*** at the left in the background and I think you know the young lady with Mr. Claus.
* See? I've always been easily overwhelmed, it's not just because I'm old.
**Maxine is my paternal grandmother who also lived in Arizona. My maternal grandma lived in Chicago.
*** Jack is my dad's older brother. I'm assuming the elderly couple are the Christmas party throwers.
