Ditto here. My son gets one every year from someone he works for. He gave me one of his prized steaks. So tender. Fork tender.

Having many mini heart attacks. Watching the Pats vs Denver, Brady vs. Tebow game. Right now we are ahead, I was up all night, so of course I slept the whole day. Once the game is over, I am going to make up a packet of dry ingredients for the apple pie for DD and cut up the salt pork for the Xmas Eve corn chowder. Because it takes me twice as long to accomplish a chore, I have to start early.

I have a friend in Atlanta. Her daughter is an avid fan of the Patriots. My son finds certain scratch tickets and sends them in for what is called "A Second Chance." If you win, you get a package of Patriots' equipment. He has won so many packages over the years and has run out of family members and friends to give the stuff to. Well, he won again Ho Hum. How boring. So he is sending one of the packages to my girlfriend's challenged daughter. Unfortunately, she won't receive it until after Christmas. The last time I visited them, I brought with me a Bobble Brady head, a cap with the old Logo on it, and a few other pieces of Pats stuff. That was three years ago. She still is sending me thank you notes. I don't want to be there when she gets a big box that will have a football with the team signatures and logo on it along with a Brady shirt and other good stuff. This girl can give you the stats on every Pats player for the past ten years. There is a sports bar in Atlanta that she goes to whenever the Pats are playing. Everyone there is a Pats fan. She has become the 'go to' girl to settle an argument. And she lives in Falcon land with her mother. Go figure.

I am trying to keep my mind occupied (it is not working). A friend of mine(my savior out of my abusive marriage) died yesterday. She was way to young to go. R.I.P. Jamie

Patty, think of it 'that she got you out of a difficult life, and now she has gone to a place of peace.' God needed her. She did the work he asked of her. Now she is getting her reward.

I'm sorry for your loss. Someone who will do what she did is a true friend.

Rubbing the sleep out of my eyes, having a cup of coffee and catching up on the night's doings.
