Saturday 9: Happy Holidays! (from the archives)
Hey, I wasn't taking any chances. I faced my fear,
stood in line and sat in the jolly old man's lap and also wrote him a
Oh, I'm on the nice list -- just too tired to be on the

No. Not this year. The only gift to go a long

Remembering that makes me think that the blanket has
disappeared since she moved into the memory unit and I'm going to have to
search of it. I'd hate to have it lost.
