Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! We had a quiet one with a delicious dinner, a few gifts and a few phone calls. Dick and Lorraine sent shirts, bourbon balls and ham. And yes, for those of you who have been here, there’s a new clock!
The guys are in KC together, and as I write, they’re buying a new, used car for Kyle. He is still driving the Integra we bought Chris in high school and it’s not doing so great. Kyle is working and so, it’s time. They survived all the KC snow, even went to the movies on Christmas Day.
Meanwhile, we’re having more fun with plumbing than anyone should have. On Christmas Eve morning, we noticed water in the basement utility room. Called our plumber (our plumber is a long story that I’ll write about some time, he’s a wonderful guy – he and his wife even came to dad’s funeral Mass). He came, worked on something – seemed to be fixed. Tonight, I reached under the kichen sink to retrieve the cutting board and… it was wet. We’ve shut off the hot water at the sink. The plumber will be here first thing Monday morning.
