Jan’s Favorite Christmas Song is ‘Mary, Did You Know” and she has just about every different version of it, but this version is her new favorite. Even better, the little girl’s name is Noelle. And her voice is amazing.
R.I.P. James (Butterbean) Carpenter
Joyce Carpenter let us know this morning that her husband, and our friend and long-time blog reader, ‘Butterbean’ Carpenter was killed in a car accident this past Wednesday, Dec. 11th. We had been corresponding with him for several years, and finally got to meet him and Joyce in February 2012 when we got together at the Salt Lick BBQ in Driftwood, TX.
Our daughter Brandi even designated him Landon’s “Honorary Uncle”.
He will be missed.
Jan’s been putting out feed for the birds and they finally found it, especially the Monk Parakeets.
She’s even putting out carrots for the bunny rabbit that shows up at night.
In other animal news, I was going to throw away the box my new printer came in, but Mister had another idea.
Apparently it’s his box now.
Want to check out New York City without paying for an expensive campground? Just park your RV on the street like these people do. I think your biggest problem might be coming back to your rig and finding it up on blocks and all your tires gone.
The tide was out today and that’s when all the seagulls show up to dine on the many tasty treats that are revealed.
Tomorrow’s going to be a movie day. We plan on having lunch at King Food and then catching the 1:30 showing of Ender’s Game. Then sometime in the next couple days we also plan to see Thor: The Dark World. Both of these have been out since the first part of November, while we were still on the gate, and we want to see them before they’re pushed out by the Christmas movies.
Today we spent a good while catching up on the new Fall shows we DVR’ed while we were still on the gate. So far we’ve caught up on Grimm, Once Upon A Time, Big Bang Theory, Two and A Half Men, and now we’re working on Agents of SHIELD. Next up are Nashville, Person of Interest, Sleepy Hollow, Once Upon A Time in Neverland, Castle, Mentalist, and Bones. Hopefully we’ll be caught by the time all the new episodes start back up.
Since I started out this blog with a song, I thought I end it with one too. This is Jase and Missy Robinson of the Duck Dynasty crew singing “Baby, It’s Cold Outside”. Missy has a great voice, and Jase is not too bad either.
Check it out.
Thought for the Day:
Why is it you can buy a Sunbeam 8-12 cup coffee maker for under $20.00, but one that only makes one cup at a time costs over $100.00?
