This is one of my very favorites. My mom bought this for superhubby and me right after we got married, 23 years ago.
My mom also bought this one for us, but didn't notice when the lady spelled our last name wrong, but I don't mind.
In case I don't get time to
stalk visit everyone, I hope you have a safe and Merry Christmas.

Me: Hello nice operator. I recently placed an order and forgot a couple of pictures. I wanted to make sure I would get them before Christmas.
Operator: Which picture did you need.
Me: I took some pictures of Joseph, Mary and the new baby. Those are the ones I need.
Operator: um....did you say Joseph, Mary and the new baby?
Operator: Ok then, are you sure it was Joseph, Mary and the baby?
Me: Of course I'm sure, I was there.
Operator: Were there any wise men there at the time?
Me: Yes (Mary's uncle is a Lawyer and he watched)
Operator : How about animals?
Me: Wow, how did you know. The cattle and sheep were so noisy, it woke the baby. (her uncle lives in a big farm and the animals were so loud that night we were joking about them)
Operator: Let me guess, there was a bright light in the sky?
Me: Well there was this big bright star.....(which was a Christmas decoration on one of the neighbors houses)
Operator: Alrighty then, are you home alone or is there an orderly or family member with you?
Me: I'm home alone right now.
Operator: How about if you give me your address and I will call someone to come and visit you, maybe take you for a ride in an ambulance with a pretty flashing light. They have nice tight white coats you can wear to stay warm.
Me: Sounds like fun but I really just need the pictures...hello....hello?
So I decided to just order the pictures and hope for the best. I'm not sure if they would ship quicker to a local mental hospital or not, may be worth a try.

Do you see the house in the background? I actually have a next door neighbor! They recently finished their house and it looks nice if some idiot would quit covering it in ashes.
The sun was nice for a day but today we are back to rain which is supposed to turn to ice and snow tonight.

The tv show I was talking about in my last post was Ghost Hunters. I am completely and totally addicted to the show. The season finale was last Wednesday and I am sad. A few years ago I would have laughed at that show but since spending so much time at the museum I find it very interesting.
I'm working on a post about Rev. John Rankin, a famous abolitionist that died in Ironton in the very house that we now use for the museum. He was an interesting man who helped free over 2000 slaves. It was a dangerous thing for people to do back then and he and his family did a lot of it.
Now I have to go figure out how to get DD home, there are two cars turned sideways in front of my house unable to go on up the hill.....could be an interesting evening.

It has been a busy few weeks. I had a nice birthday with my family, volunteered a lot at the museum and let my house go completely. Now I am going to pay for it in a big way. It will take me days to clean up all the dog hair, cake icing (DD is taking cake decorating classes) and dirty dishes. If I can stay awake today I think I may actually get a little chunk of it finished. I may be back later.....or I may not. Tonight is my FAVORITE night on tv and there are 3 episodes of my favorite show on tonight. I won't even tell you what it is (if any of you are left out there) because you would laugh. Goodbye until next time.
