Me, checking in again

Just wanted everyone to know that I think I'm going to actually survive this stupid cold. There were a few moments. I'm still a little raspy, TBG calls it my 'come hither' voice, but it's tons better. And just in time for yet another party. Tonight is our annual get together with Barb and Jeff. It used to be paella night when there were six of us and we laugh the night away eating, drinking and unwrapping gifts. Now with Sarah and Rod gone, it's become a little less festive. Jeff does do a lovely meal and we will open gifts, but it will not be the same. Now there is always a hole, two of them, in fact. Still, we will do our best to make merry and remember them with laughter and not tears.

Our weather is still clear and sunny. Nights are down into the 30's and the days are in the 60's. they are claiming rain tonight, but I will believe it when I see it. It will be nice to have fresh snow up in the mountains for the holiday weekend, though. It will be better to not have it when everyone is traveling.

This in the local news, a fifth arson fire was set in another children's playground at one of our local parks in Stockton, They say arson is up from 85 to 183 cases this year. Why torch the kids' stuff, though? What is that proving? Sigh.

I hope everyone is surviving this last week before the Big Day. How many of you will be working that week between Christmas and New Year's? I'm glad we get it off, but it would be nicer if it was with pay. :P Oh well, at least this year is covered.

Rock on, everyone
