Bob will be leaving for home on Saturday and I'm having trouble waiting until he arrives. The other fellows are staying so he will be driving by himself which I don't really care for. Makes for a long trip by your self. Considered flying there to come home with him but the air fare is over $1300. And we can use the money to take a trip later this winter.
I've been making baskets for our group as well as a few straight friends. Something I started doing several years ago and everyone seems to like them. This year I'm including dipped cherries as well as the usual bags of nuts and candies. They wind up costing about the same as a gift and since they are hand made seem to go over better.
I've also been baking and making candy for the holiday. We are hosting a Christmas dinner for several of our group as well as our son who will be here for five days. Its been several months since we've seen him. He has a job as an intern with Microsoft!! Might be a millionaire by the time he's 40! Hope he remembes his old Mom and Dad.

Its going to be a super Holiday season with only one fault that I can think of.
We're also having the New Year's party at our house. No slip and slide this time, just the swing instead. Not nearly as much clean up involved. All of the group will be staying overnight so the New Year may be brought in in a super way. Hope we survive. (Our son will back back at his place by then.)
