Avoiding a phone call to the insurance agent re my newly-received big, fat premium notice from my newly-switched (not by choice) homeowner's insurance company. How do I know the replacement value on my house in today's economy? I hate this stuff.

I was downstairs in the Community Room attending the Christmas Party. But my neck started to hurt real bad and had to leave so I could come up to my apartment and rest. I am upset that I had to leave. The entertainer is a favorite of all the residents and puts on a good show everytime. My only complaint is that AGAIN they served Italian food. There was more than plenty for everyone. And the food was good. But it would be nice to have something else.
We have a couple of Spanish speaking people here. And there are a few like myself. Non-Italians. The rest are all Italian. So I guess the majority rules.

Just got done wrapping some more gifts. I think I will be all done shopping and wrapping tomorrow. My DIL said we will be sending my grandson and his girlfriend who live in Paris something through Amazon. I will let her take care of that and I will just pay her.:>)

Suggestion box time!!! How many do they cook for? It would be so easy to do an Enchilada night for a party.

There are 40 residents in the building. But only about two-thirds usually attend these functions. When you get old, you tend to get crotchety. The last thing you want is to be around people you haven't even made an effort to meet and talk to.

You have just painted the most perfect picture. Thank you for evoking memories in me. Give little Chloe a gentle kiss on her cheek for me.
