Friday 55 & Da Count-They're Dreaming of a White Christmas

FRIDAY 55

Meesh, we coming from Trinidad in December,
we could stay by you?
YES!!!!!!!
 What do you want to do while you're here?
We want to see a white Christmas...
I'll put in my order!
Sit by a fireplace...
It will crackle!
And shoot guns.
After I got done giggling
I promised plenty of ammo and targets.



DA COUNT

With apologies to Suldog for talking about Christmas before Thanksgiving is here.  This week I am counting the blessing of having dear friends I haven't seen in 9 years come visit us next month.  Dean has come to see us alone before but this time his entire family will come as well.  In truth they are more than friends.  They are our family.  Any doubt on that matter should be allayed if you recall the post where I gave tribute to our Trini Mum when she left this world and the one where Dean made it possible for me see her funeral.  I am just overjoyed to have the chance to have them all visit us and try to lavish back on them in some small measure the love they gave us when we lived in Trinidad.  I can't wait to throw my arms around each one of them.

Have to agree with Brian, the same goes for down here in South Carolina minus the snow.

Fantastic! Have a wonderful reunion!

Oh, how wonderful!

Hope you can show 'em lots of snow. . .

We boarded a Nigerian grad student, years ago. Over Christmas, the folks who were sponsoring him brought his wife over to spend the holidays with him, and we proceeded to have a record-breaking cold snap the whole time she was here. The poor woman wore about five layers of sweaters and thermal long-johns, and I don't think she ever got warm. . .

WordVer = 'inatent'; which, I hope, is not where you'll be putting your friends up while they're here. . .

I'm so happy for you, Michelle. What a great way to celebrate the holidays.

Suldog said...

No apologies needed. This is as good a reason to speak of that other holiday, before Thanksgiving, as there could be. Sounds like you'll have a great time, and I'm sure it will mean a fun story or two for us!

What fun for you for Christmas, and what a funny story, too--I guess in America, we are all synonymous with the artillery. Thanks for sharing this.
