 You don't need a Norman Rockwell type of Christmas to enjoy good food, a good dog, 
a great husband, and a fantastic cook.

  4. Merry Christmas! You got most of the essentials: food, dog, husband. But no Bear. And don't you dare say "Bear rug"!

  7. Merry Christmas Lotta Joy! Lil Stud is sure having such a fun time with his presents - so awesome ! May the three of you have a Blessed Day !

    There is just the three of us here (hubby, son and me ) awaiting the turkey dinner and the trimmings. My brother has to work a fifteen hour shift today as he switched shifts with those that have families. He's a confirmed bachelor and he doesn't mind the overtime and statutory pay. I'll save him leftovers.

    I didn't receive the drawing amongst my gifts - I'll heist it when I go there for a visit next year.

    Have a lovely evening !

    1. Maybe if I send her the bill for the extra drawings she requested, then say "Pay up, or send Helga her portrait" that would get it in the post office on its way to you.

  8. Exactly! Stud, Lil' Stud and Lotta Joy! All together and getting into festivities. Great stuff. I had a wonderful conversation with the four walls and Penny the Jack Russell told me her thoughts on life and um being 'pawsitive'! Which reminds me, Penny the Jack Russell dog and modest internet superstar, has noted the photos and she tried to jump through the screen. If she does get there, would you please send her back.

    A peaceful, hopeful Christmas to you, my friend.

    1. That boy has saved our sanity on more times than today. We just went with our theme of him being our furchild and we were suddenly not alone anymore!!

      And we worship the dog world. If Penny lands here, she STAYS here.

    2. Lotta - We refer to Maggie as our little black dog daughter. And you are right about the Norman Rockwell thing. I tend to think I tend to get caught up in that and it's BS. Happiness can be anything and anywhere. We just have to open our eyes. Merry Christmas!

  9. Merry Christmas y'all. Beau was having pure joyful FUN....does your heart good to see that doesn't it.....especially since the boy had such a sad past. You two are, indeed, his angels. Big hugs all 'round. (boy, those beans and ham sure do look good)

    1. Homemade bean soup Sunday, homemade mushroom soup yesterday, and those candied beans today. There's a green glow above our house from all the gas we're producing, but well worth it.

      And Beau still remembers his past, every time we leave the house and he thinks we're abandoning him. arghhh

  10. I wonder if you rolled up paper with no gift if he would have just as much fun. That blur was funny. I have my hens, no Christmas meal, and no husband. I watched one hen eat, one hen try to eat while another hen attacked her. Fun time.

    1. That boy absolutely hates newspaper, and every Sunday we give him all of it to tear up. I was upset when I saw I couldn't photograph him with blurs, but it's so damn cute when I put it on the blog.

      Have you thought of getting a rescue Maltese? This is the smartest dog we've EVER had!

  11. I love what you do with bacon ! Merry Christmas. I've spent it taking care of poor elderly Rosheen, (a former Jack Russell Terorist) who is skirting kidney failure. The vet and I haven't given up yet !

    1. Bacon, sweet red peppers, LOTSA brown sugar, onions, more sugar, more bacon.

      It's hard enough to trust a doctor for humans, but trusting a vet when they can't even talk to their patient is HORRIBLE.

  12. Looks splendid to me! Glad you had a good time. Oh by the way, please don't deport Piers Morgan, TV got so much better since we sent him over your way!

    1. He was ecstatic, then he fell asleep and we got to listen to him snoring.

    2. A dog's snore is one of the sweetest sounds on Earth.

    3. This boy can really whip out the snores til they can be heard from any room in the house. It MIGHT be because he's 15 pounds overweight, but who isn't.

  14. "good food, a good dog, a great husband..."

    Is this list in ascending or descending order of importance?

    1. You didn't say anything about me putting myself LAST. Hmmmm.

      Male chauvinist!!!

  15. OK, How does one dish up the bacon latticed beans ? I have been hungry for those all day !

    1. I now wish I'd taken photos of the process because I've been asked that ever since the post went up. I'll send you an email TRYING to explain. Some people thought I literally wove them together then lifted the whole bunch and laid them on the beans.

  16. What else could anyone possibly need. Happy Holiday.
