Lots of December Birthdays during Christmas

Two of my very close friends (Teri & Helen) all celebrate December Birthdays - - same Age.  I'm delighted to say that I'm actually the youngest of us 3 !!   (Just a note - - 2 other special people celebrating December Birthdays are - - my Cousin, Jan & our Uncle Jack !) - - -  Now, Helen - - who actually lives near me - -celebrates her birthday today. Helen's House recently burned down and she lost everything she owned - - yes, EVERYTHING !    Then, shortly thereafter - -  her husband became ill and suddenly passed away.  Thankfully, she did not flood during the recent Historical Flood of 2016.   Helen & I bonded together on a Mission Trip to a small town in Southern Louisiana.  We plan to Retire together - - next December  - - after our 65th Birthday - - and participate in more Mission Trips.

Yes - during Football Season - - she makes it known she's from Alabama - - but, we still love her anyway !

I must say - - it's fun growing older with good ole' friends.

It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas !!!

Macedonia Baptist Church invited me to attend their annual Christmas Celebration with lots of Christmas Music & Delicious Food & the Christmas Story !  Ole time friends Roger & Janice (Mack) Dunlap leads this Celebration - - and - - extended a special invitation to me and other Election Commissioners during our last Election Day.  It's Tonight - - on a Thursday Night (Dec. 1) - - but I think I'll go.  It is in the Country - and will provide me with the opportunity to test my Car Electronic Navigation System (:>) !   I look forward to beginning the Christmas Season celebrating with my Voting Commissioner Friends.

It truly is beginning to look a lot like Christmas.
