How Things Work

Substantial numbers of my siblings have been remiss in providing grandchildren of late. The grandkids are nigh into their mid '20's so Christmas started at about 5pm. Heck, it almost didn't happen at all today.

But we played with RC helicopters and my parents made noises regarding the incredibly expensive remaining dental care for my Christmas present.

Nobody's eaten the cheese yet. The chocolate on the other hand, has met with an early demise.

The cat enjoys the company. Everyone, exhausted, went back to hotel rooms rather early tonight. Presumably my sister and brother-in-law arrive tomorrow for more eating and merriment. I gotta get us some apple schnapps.

I could go on and on about the "best pineapple we've ever had." It will go down into the annals of legend, this beautiful, whole, pineapple. It was some good stuff, boy. Diana gave it to me for Christmas. Smooth, sweet without being cloying. A hint of coconut. The pineapple, I mean.
