God grant you the light in Christmas, which is faith;
the warmth of Christmas, which is love;
the radiance of Christmas, which is purity;
the righteousness of Christmas, which is justice;
the belief in Christmas, which is truth;
& all of Christmas, which is Christ.

A Fun Game!

I've suggested to John what I think might be a fun game only we'd need two cell phones & we don't even have one.  The name of the game would be Surprise, & here's how it would be played.  John would go down to the end of the driveway, between the gate & the street, with our trusty garden spade.

I'd stay up here on the front porch, keeping a watch on the main road to the left of us ...
... & to the right of us.
When I'd see a car coming up or down the road, I'd speed dial John to let him know.  He would then immediately drop to the ground, clutching his chest.  It would be a surprise if anyone bothered to stop to see if he was okay.

It's been raining for a few hours now.  The 12-14" of snow has shrunken down to about 8-10" of heavy wet slush.  John tried moving the SUV again without it getting stuck.  I'm sure you can guess how that went.  Tomorrow is the last chance we have to get it down the driveway & onto the road before temperatures return to a string of below freezing digits beginning on Monday.  The plan is for me to move the SUV a bit at a time, inching it out to & down the driveway, with John walking alongside with the trusty garden spade to dig out the tires when they get stuck.  Doesn't this sound like fun?  I can't wait until the sun rises tomorrow!

Good luck with the SUV moving, take care the two of you.

You have a wicked sense of humour! I bet you'd do the same thing if you saw the Google Earth car coming. Apparently there are all sorts of things you can spot if you know where to look, people posing as dead etc.

Hi Shirlee, it is Monday morning here - are you still snowed in! Inquiring minds would love to know! It has been hot, hot, hot here!

Hope you get your truck down the drive.

Hope you can get your SUV moved out. Would this mean that then you could finally get to a grocery store?
Hope it works! love Annette
