On The Same Page

     After only 2 days of awkward dinners, exasperated sighs, eye rolls, too much shopping at our overpacked, over heated mall, short tempers and one crying fit of pure frustration courtesy of the relatives, Mom and I agree it's time to break out the alcohol.


  1. There is no better time than visits from relatives to break out the alcohol, Nola. Next up? Hard liquor. Keep on drinking for the rest of the week!

    My mom wishes she could join you, but she is allergic to alcohol! What do you suggest she do? Please drink one for her.


  2. We wish you and yours

    A Happy Holiday
    A Merry Christmas

    Best wishes Molly

  3. Yeap, 10-4 on that, we are in with you

    Your Pals
    The Scottie Twinkies
    Have a Most Happy & Merry Christmas

  4. Sometimes the only thing that helps Christmas cheer with relatives is a good belt of liquor. Thinking of you and wishing you all happy holidays (and endurance).

  5. Enjoy! Looks like you are....ha ha! Merry Christmas, my friend!

  6. Yep, the bubbly will be out tonight at our house as well. Hope your tongue didn't get stuck to that cold bottle. BOL Merry Christmas Sniffs, The HoundDogs
