Rings On Her Fingers
"Rings on her fingers and bells on her toes. She shall have music wherever she goes." So goes an old bit of doggerel. For me, from now on it will be rings and bells and phones (and lights) wherever I go. Deb and Craig stuck to the imposed limit, but their cat, Clyde, went way over the top. My wireless phones had given up the ghost and only the base station still worked. Once having had the freedom of a wireless, being tethered to the land line was like going back to the dark ages. Clyde, who never minds anyone, presented me with a five-, count 'em, five-phone set of wireless. I will even have the luxury of a phone in the bathroom! How's that for one-ups? After a wonderful day with two of my most favorite people in the world, I spent several happy hours with the instruction manual programming the phones. In addition, I was given a set of (3) nightlights that have a battery backup that kicks in during a power outage. These could quite literally be lifesavers on a dark night.
I am all for having two (or more) Christmases a year. Just think, when the boys come up again they will open the gifts Deb and Craig left for them. It never ends!
