Since Himself said he would listen to the debate and give me a summary later, I've been listening to the Cleveland Indians baseball game. As many of you know, I've been a fan of the Indians since I was 8. Not many post-season games over all those decades, but this year we'll be in the playoffs!

Lessee, so far this year the Lake Erie (now Cleveland) Monsters won the AHL Caulder Cup. The Cleveland Cavaliers won the NBA championship. I'm hoping my Mom's adage holds up this year: all things come in threes. Sure would be nice to see my baseball team win the MLB World Series in my lifetime...

CG, I have been holding on to my dream of the Pats, Sox, Celts, Revolutions and Bruins would all win their championship trophies in the same year. Stranger things have happened.

I ordered something from a Christmas website off of Amazon and when the order came today I looked at their logo on the paper work and it said "Christmas Central-So Good Even Santa Shops Here." For some reason that made me smile.

Getting released from the hospital AGAIN! Nothing serious. Overnight stay. Heart related. All is fine.

Five month old girl who couldn't stop giggling while she was watching our cat eat.

My little neighbor girl, who I've known since she was a wee babe, is now a full grown adult. She's visiting her dad. I banged on the door to deliver some cauliflower cheese soup. She was very appreciative! Dad doesn't cook, and she had a major hangover.

Oh yeah. That does sound like she is really grown up.

Addie, Addie, Addie. I think your angel's halo is askew.

Been there, done that. But, boy, was that wedding of Himself's cousin sure worth it.

A week or so ago, a friend had posted a photo on Facebook showing a broken brandy snifter. He was all sad about it. Well, it just so happened I had a pair of what looked like the same Irish crystal snifters in my wine rack. Unused. Collecting dust. See, Himself is the brandy "sniffer" in our house, and I bought him a lovely Waterford snifter for a Christmas gift one year. I was willing to part with my Irish glasses...for a swap. Told said friend I would trade him the glasses for something homemade (he and his husband pickle, can, make wine...all sorts of stuff). He left my surprise at the community theatre we each have worked at, and I dropped the glasses off tonight. Whoa, it was like Christmas! (Actually, the bag was a Christmas gift bag...) I got a bottle of homemade slightly sweet red wine, a quart of homemade tomato sauce (from their garden tomatoes, natch'), and a small hinged bottle of homemade vanilla. Oh, yum!

I'm going to have to go through my stuff to see what else I can wheel and deal for more swap items.
