GGma and I didn't really go anywhere this year, as usual. Gave all my kids strict instructions to stay at their own homes or go to their in-laws. Don't come here. I don't want to have to worry about you in a snowstorm or some such.
Christmas Eve we went to the Oasis for some Christmas cheer with the Longs and took a couple of pics. That was in the afternoon. That evening we were invited up on the hill to the Porters for some Christmas snacks and cheer. It was really good food and they serve wine or champagne. Was a fun evening and good food. More pics there. Check my picasa site.
Christmas morning Gma and I opened our gifts and went to 9:00 Mass. Fr. Daley was the celebrant. He has been cleared by his doctor and the Bishop to come back and do Masses.
Went to the Irma in Cody with the Griffins for dinner at 11:30. Saw the Fendts there but weren't seated anywhere near them. Did get a bit of a visit though when we went to the buffet. Were home early and took naps, then had our happy hour and ate some of our goodies. We have lots.
It was a very nice peaceful day and the weather was decent.
Fr. Daley was back for a 9:00 a.m. Mass on Sunday and said he will be back for New Years day and the Sunday after. Fr. Dube has gone back to Nigeria for a month. He is scheduled to be back the end of January sometime. Might be interesting to see what happens then. He likes coming to Meeteetse too. Fr. Daley will probably be here every Sunday as long as his health allows. But it is kinda iffy. His determination will no doubt see him through his pain.
Went to Cody today as the bus isn't going to run New Year's Eve. John would take us if it was really a necessity, but no one had anything that couldn't wait. He told me going for lunch didn't constitute a necessity. Darn!! So Gma and I went this morning and had lunch at Our Place. Got enought stuff to last her when I go back to Hardin. That depends on weather. So far its looking good for the first of the month.
