The red dirt road. Today my walking log reads 1200 miles logged since January 1. That is 3.35 miles a day, except many days I did not walk at all. I had 118 days with zero miles.
I am saying I am now in Stafford County, Virginia enjoying a Christmas visit with Charles and Sarah. I was wondering what they might be doing in 1770 at Christmas time in a poor farmer's home. It seems they would be drinking and making merry, at least Charles was likely enjoying the drink.

They got all kinds of loot and both have a tablet each and each now has their own XBox. But it is most fun to play together. Robert got the game chair and they both love it. You will notice the boss is siting in it. They are having a wonderful time playing this race car game.
Son next door cooked the ham and I cooked all the rest. I made scalloped potatoes, veggies in cheese sauce, green beans with drippings, mashed potatoes, rolls, and Duncan Hines carrot cake. Next time it will be ham, potatoes and bread. We ate some of the other things, as JR said, we are simple people. Ham, potatoes and bread people.
If you are thinking of buying one of the expensive carrot cake mixes, don't bother. It was dry and tasteless. Bread and ham were both great. Oh, and Emmy says she made the ham, but I did not believe her.
She brought her phone up here and we all got to have face time with Lane and Summer. They really looked happy.

In the PJ's Aunt Helen sent. Robert said, 'I had been wanting these.' No, really, he did. They both loved them and Robert has already put his stickers on his door. This is the only thing we let them unwarp. Now they will look pretty for pics in the morning.
