Hanging on the Line

If you sent these folks a card, you are probably hanging on the line, or should I say, “Your card is hanging on the line! I thought it was a cool way to display your greeting cards at Christmas time!

My first Christmas morning taxi customer, as we were passing this eagle, wondered if I had ever seen it! I said no, pressed the red button for my hazard lights, and backed down the road, till I could get a good view of the bald eagle. I got out and grabbed a quick shot before going down the road. A nice gift by a thoughtful passenger, and we still arrived at our first destination two minutes ahead of schedule! In the coming year, let’s be alert to times when we can give gifts to others, even in simple ways, such as pointing out this regal bird to an avid bird photographer! Happy Holidays

My 95-year-old mother is stretching out the anticipation as she marvels at the wrapping paper on her gifts. I told her if she doesn’t hurry up, it will be Christmas till she gets the gifts opened! Of course it was Christmas! She had so much fun, as we also did, watching her excitement!

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas to all our friends, whether virtual or otherwise! Trusting it will be a time of joy, hope and peace as many of you will be surrounded by family and loved ones.

Mixed feelings for us with funerals this week for a cousin, and a cousin’s husband. Christmas to remind us of the greatest gift of all, When God sent us his Son!!! The week will culminate with the wedding of a good friend! So may God give comfort to those that need comforting this season!

She saw the angel Gabriel!

I tried to post a 24 second video of the beginning of this 8 minute speech where my talented wife portrayed Mary the Mother of Jesus’s thoughts when 70 years old! My theme does not import videos. Does that mean I should upgrade. I guess If you want to see the video clip you will have to go to Facebook! Hope your Christmas Eve is a special time of celebrating with family/and/or friends!


A nice display at the assisted living facility where my mother lives!



The school bus follows the snow plow on the Old Brick Road!




This scene blessed me upon entering the village of Walnut Creek, in Holmes County, Ohio!
