So Much Stuff I Can't Recall

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas from sunny Southern California. Dina, Phil, and I spent the day (and the last couple) with Dina's folks (that's Poppa in the background of Phil's photo, above). The boy made out like mad; Dina and I didn't do too shabbily, either. Among Phil's haul was a digital camera, which provided today's pix. It's less forgiving than the camera he's used to, but he's enjoying it even if not many of the pictures come out well (lighting is a big issue, so's his inability to stand still for half a second). Also, his subject matter choice leaves considerable to be desired.

(In other Phil photo-related news, the publisher of the newspaper that ran an article on me earlier this year requested a new/current photo to run with a reprint of the article in a sister paper. Phil snapped a shot of me and I sent it in with his name listed for the photo credit. Is a career born? And is there money to be made in avant garde porcelain and water shots? Stay tuned.)

At any rate, we had a great day, dining with cousins, an aunt & uncle, and a potential cousin-in-law. Too much Honeybaked and potatoes and rolls -- you can never have too much gravy, but we came close.

Hope you and all yours had a Merry Christmas, too. And if Santa didn't give you the combination ballpoint pen/FM radio that he gave Phil, head on down to CVS and pick one up for $3 while they're still available -- Snazzy!

Merry Christmas. Would love to know what kind of digital camera you got Phil, as we got our kids digital cams for Christmas and they were ecstatic for a day till we found out the kid-friendly digicams were CRAP and miraculously deleted pictures before we could download them to the computer ... so we will be searching for newer (and probably more expensive) brands.
