Christmas junk around Andy's Place...

Hey y'all! Hugs, kisses, yada yada yada...

Not much going on around Andy's Place, except for having every single minute occupied with something to do, preparing for Christmas. Humbug.

We finally broke out the Christmas decorations yesterday afternoon. The Mrs., and future daughter-in-law were going through the junk, figuring out what to use. I walked through the living room, and then:

The Mrs.: "Andy, CATCH! I mean, really catch's glass, and it's got a crack in the bottom. Throw it away."

She then throws me an old round tree ornament, dated Christmas 1983, or something.

Me: (inspecting the crack) "This isn't glass. It's plastic."

The Mrs.: "You sure?"

Me: "Heck yeah, look!"

So, I slam it down on the hardwood floor, readying to catch it as it bounces back.


The Mrs.: "Go get the canister vacuum. Moron."

Airman on the left...Soldier on the right.

Yep, #1 son has been here for a week, and #3 son made it in from Fort Sam Houston on Wednesday night. We've been having a good time. These brothers haven't seen each other in almost 3 years. Even though they are 10 years apart in age, they get along real well. It's good to have them home...even for a little while.

We are all going to see Tim Hawkins tonight. I understand that he is hilarious, and it's the kind of clean, fun, family Christmas show that even 13 year old son will love.

Actually, we've been looking at some videos on his website...funny. Check out "Short Songs," "Chick-fil-A," and "Do You Hear What I Hear?" Ought to be a hoot!

Well, that's all I got...

Y'all have a great Friday.


  1. Glad the fam is all together. Y'all have a great time and make sure someone else determines the age old question "Paper or plastic" for you. You might pick glass.

  2. Those are some fine looking sons, Andy. Thank 'em for their service for me, will ya?

  3. Paul, you made Pam laugh.

    Buck, I'll sho' 'nuf do it. Same to your boys...

  4. I want to quote your post in my blog. It can?
