Bonnie's Art

Bonnie drew this horse on Jan. 9 by looking at a photo on her new calendar. We made a postcard out of it with the printer and mailed it with a note to her Grammy. I want to see if a homemade postcard on photo paper makes it through the mail all right.

Bonnie and the Dogs

That sweet-looking dog on the left is Roscoe, the one who ate Poe's nose off. The kid in the middle is Bon, who adores Roscoe even though he will eat any possession she has ever had. The dog on the right (your right, not Bon's) is our very best behaved dog, Brussels. (Because I am developing a hearing problem or because simply EVERYONE mumbles now, I think his name is Brussels. Bonnie says his name is Ruffles.) He doesn't eat or beg for food, he doesn't bite his behind, he doesn't howl or bark unreasonably, he doesn't poke his icy nose on your leg unexpectedly, he doesn't eat unknown objects and cough them up, he doesn't shed...If Roscoe ever gets him, only shreds of Brussels will be left lying about.

Reunited After Nearly 20 Years!

A friend from college came by and met us for lunch today! We hadn't seen her for 19 1/2 years. That was fun, although the waitress at Appleby's tried to hurry us along.

Happy 19th Birthday, Diana!

Diana opened a package of new socks, among other presents. I am deeply envious!

Is This Girl Related to One of the Beatles?

Or is she one of my daughter's unusual friends? Hmmm.

Favorite Movie Animal: Bugsy!

This guinea pig is now my favorite movie animal for January. Since I was awake through the whole movie, Bedtime Stories, it must have been pretty entertaining! A no-napper is rare for me. It was funny and unexpected things kept happening, although a viewer is bound to know that all will be well in the end. The gumball part was cool, also. If you don't mind Adam Sandler and you have a tolerance for children's movies, you'll enjoy yourself. Now where can I find one of those guinea pigs with the big eyes?

(I can't make myself go see Marley and Me. I heard on The View that the dog dies, and then I read the book. Of course he dies! It's a dog story! It's terribly sad, although the couple gets another dog who looks like Marley in the end. Still, I love dogs, and if I had seen it, Marley might have been my favorite movie animal for January. I also saw Bolt in December, and I enjoyed the hamster in the ball a great deal. I did, however, take a nap at the beginning of Bolt, and it WAS animated, after all. A one-napper, last month, and animated--no contest between Bolt and Bedtime Stories.)

Obviously, my twelve-year-old daughter Bonnie usually affects my movie choices a great deal. I rarely get to see one that she can't go see as well. (I narrowly escaped going to see High School Musical 3!)

Our Nephew Curtis

Our nephew Curtis left today (January 2) for Illinois to continue his training in the Navy. He has been home for the holidays.

On New Year's Day 1956

My parents were married on New Year's Day in 1956.
