Tribute to the Taurus

The Ford Taurus has been my dear friend over the last eight years. Yes, we had a rough year in 2007, but nothing Henry's Repair shop couldn't restore. I am a little amazed every time when it comes to replace a car. I find myself feeling as though I am betraying a friendship or loyalty. In fact, I think the Taurus feels it too. I am nearly positive it sensed our days together were numbered. It has been on its best behavior. Not even a creek or odd hum. It is as if it is begging, "keep me and ditch the Honda." Ever since the radio/stereo stopped working a few years back I swear the car talks to me. I have learned each hum, squeal, and clank along with its corresponding translation. I am planning on pampering my car this weekend with a new oil change and a wash before you go to your new owner. Thank you Ford Taurus for your years of service. Good bye.

Christmas was nearly a month ago and yes we are just now getting around to uploading our pictures to the computer. So enjoy some Christmas fun...

I had every intention of making a Christmas card. The top picture was one of the shots that almost made it. January just came a little too fast.

Here we have our little "Santa" enjoying his Christmas presents! He enjoyed all of the attention!

This is what happens when you are the first Great-Grandchild and first Grandchild. It was so sweet! What a loved little boy!
