Good Morning to all of the faithful followers of moi: This blog is for those who did not get an e-mail about our adventures in living the pioneer spirit. Yesterday we we sitting in the living room watching Big Bang Theory when the phone rang. It was our neighbor Jacob. He said "I have a Pig for You" The pictures I hopefully will post will explain it all. So much like the Jeff Foxworthy "Red Necks" we replaced the transmission hanging in the tree with a wild pig. Don and Flo and Joe came over and bippity boppity boo, it was skinned and taken to the processsor. Okay enough for now. Who knows what us without a life will get into today so as usual love to all and you all know the drill.

D's suitcase is almost done and my stuff iis lined up. Still need to get my nails done and a hair cut. I will cut Mr.S's hair next week and put his mickeys in.

As for New Year's resolutions, just look back at the previous year and if you feel there are areas that are lacking, just do the opposite of what you did and see if that works. Okay love to all and you konw the drill.

Then we came home and watched the Giant Football game. At first I was ecstatic and then they fell apart.
