All is good

The New Year is upon us.
Christmas has passed.
We had a great time here at the Lowe house.
My grand kids were in rare form.No blood loss,but a few bumps and bruises. This is normal with six of the eight grand kids here.They ate and they played hard.Plenty of ham and turkey for all.
Santa was good to all.Bb guns and nerf guns were the hit of the day.
We got clothes and computers oh my.My favorite was a gift from Mookie.A writing pen that looks like a finger.When you pull it----farts.
I love this .I now know my deed is done.I have taught them low class redneck humor.
I think I am going to cry.I am so happy!

Reason for the season

We all enjoy Christmas,this goes without saying.It can be a stressful time of year.In my type of work( meat dept.)it can be a very hard and lots of work too.Most of the time my customers are very nice.The others I just look the other way.
We all love the food.We all over eat.I do it daily.We are lucky to be in a country that we can celebrate anytime or any where we want.Without fear of retaliation by some one different from us.
Some and I hope all are lucky enough to give and receive gifts from our loved ones.
One of the best parts is being with our families.As you know this one my favorites.Kids and grand kids kick butt.
One thing that is easy to forget is why we celebrate.Our Lord and his Son.I don't want to preach.
His Birth-
His Life--
His Death for us--
That's what it is all about!

Christmas Past

We are getting close to Christmas and I have not talked to you lately.I have been very busy at work-with the doctors--with the rehab--but also shopping for my baby.
I remember a few things from Christmas past.
The time my oldest son was a baby.he was so sick we almost put him in the hospital.At my Dads house on Christmas Eve,all he did was lay on Dad and eat potato chips.Dad talked about that till the day he pasted.
Last year little Kasey got a new plastic rifle that made shooting noises.For hours he carried that thing around and must have shot in 500 times the first hour.
The year my wife found cameras very cheap for my 10 little nieces and nephews.Their Moms bitched for years about the cost to them for development.Aunt Sondi always buys the best stuff for the kids.
The year that I drew my sisters name for a gift.The only thing I could think of was to make her something.When I brought out the deacons bench I made Vickie started crying.Hell thought she was pissed and apologised, then I got the best hug ever.
The Christmas lights of Christmas past--the bastards never work right.
The work and love my mil,Nannie,put into the Christmas dinner-( two types of corn-two kinds of mac& cheese-dressing with and without onions-olives and sweet pickles-and Dema's fruit salad).
Trying to get the kids up early so we could beat Nannie and Papa.This way we had time to our self with the kids.
My kids telling me to go back to bed,that it was 4:30,not 7:00.( Can you tell I love Christmas morning?).
The year my grandmother,Mell,accepted my invitation to celebrate with us.I had only asked for 35yrs.Later on that next year she passed away.She gave me one of the best presents ever,just by being there.
My fil,Papa, would claim some one stole his bread and have the kids get him another.Every year some one's bread gets stolen.
How every year my mil and my wife would make us save tags and bows.
One year I got hamburger patty boxes from work(we were throwing away about 200),it became a tradition to get a present in a patty box.Today there are only about 5 left,we wore out the rest.
Every year we hope we don't have black bottom bread.
The year my soon to be ex daughter-in-law,gave Sondi a platter she had made with all the grand kids names and hand prints.Instant tears for Sondi and Amy.
Best of all, just having our kids and their families with us!
I know this a long post, but we have many memories.
Till next time-----------------Poohpa
Merry Christmas to you and yours!

New Mouse

The other day my mouse broke.I tried to use the pad on my laptop.But I could not handle the stress.Two fingers to control.It did not work with just one finger.I cannot do it.It must be a commie plot or something.I must be a finger retard.
To make it worse I went to Staples to buy a new one( because they were on sale for 9.99)and the only one left was pink.
Now I am not homophobic or nothing but a pink one!
Damn it I can handle it.Also I am a cheap bastard.The cheap bastard part won out.

Yesterday I spent the afternoon training for the NFL Experience.This is part of the Super Bowl activities.I will not be able to afford the game so this is the next best thing.Maybe I will be in charge of the nipple check for the cheerleaders.
I will work five 4 hr shifts.I will hope for cheerleader duty.

Knee Rehab

In 2006, I had a knee replacement.It went very well,I had very little pain after the surgery.Over the years my knee has gotten stiff.When I realised that I could not ride an exercise bike any more .After talking to my Dr I started a new round of rehab.
After 2 sessions,I found out a little 4ft9in woman could push my foot up to my ass.
I have muscled legs and have never been able to pull my legs up to my butt.If I se a runner do this it makes me sick.
I fear a cry or a fart will come out when the ladies are working on me.Either on will be embarrassing.Hopefully the fart will be dry and the cry be soft.
I have 2 treatments a week till the end of the year.
