Last Day of 2020

And here’s my sentiment on today…

Waiting for 2021

Relaxing after Christmas and looking forward to a better 2021…

Last Monday

Today is the last Monday of 2020. So, most of the humor is a send off to the year many of us want to forget as soon as possible.

But, before we get to the 2020 send off, I ran across one more Christmas meme I couldn’t pass up…

Now, on to the 2020 kick out… I mean send off…

Finally, the one thing 2020 gave us that will not be missed…

Let’s hope and pray that 2021 brings us something new and blessed.

Christmas Gifts

Sometimes you get an unexpected gift on Christmas morning…

I was out with Jessie for her morning routine.

All of a sudden I heard Jessie barking. A Cooper’s Hawk came flying down low over her and she chased it. It flew over to our neighbors tree and settled there. It calmly waited for me to go into the house and get my camera.

It was a different Christmas morning. Usually, we would be with family in Kentucky and Tennessee. That was not to be this year. Just Betty, Jessie and me.

Yet, with focusing on the birth of Jesus and the gift of Betty, Jessie and a very calm Cooper’s Hawk, it was still a good Christmas morn.
