    Oh Patty dear, could you excuse me for about twenty mintes? I’m just going to run down to the store and return this ridiculous thing.
    The reason the Pennys love their coffee so much is because it isn’t theirs at all. Burl liberates it from the U-Stor-It office.
    I am so thankful for all of you and that I don’t llive within 1,000 miles of the Pennys!

    I don’t see a plate in front of anyone but Joy. Does this mean that she has eaten (or rather shoved into her maw) a quarter of a cake by herself? Sure she did. It was looking so alone after the Veterans’ Day reception and she had her big purse (natch) and no one was looking and…..

    I feel for Patty….
    Except for the returning part, my mother used to have the same reaction to my gifts when I was a young adult.

    When you’re 25 you think your poor mother just doesn’t realise she could have a coffee grinder…
    or in my case,,,, a fancy apple corer…
    safety potato grater.. Moulli salad grater…
    embroidered lingerie bags…
    travel neck pillow….

    All the stuff that ended up stuffed into bottom drawers cos she didn’t want to hurt my feelings by getting rid of it.

    The little electric manicure set though, she was genuinely…
    “grateful for” isn’t quite right…

    “terrified of" is probably more accurate…

    She bravely stuck out a finger towards the little spinning wheel and pulled it back the second it made contact with a fingernail…
    giving me a wan little smile….

    “Very nice honey..” she said. “It’s…. interesting…”

    For heaven’s sake, Patty! Surely by now you know just to gift wrap the receipt, and leave the present in the car so you can take it back quickly . . .

    Well, you can tell Patty didn’t fall far from the tree. Giving them a coffee grinder was like giving the Elephant Man as makeup mirror.

    Great card….I could stare at it for…. a…… while……
    Right back at you and all Crustwoodies for a nice Holiday today.

    Here’s hoping that those who are working or are in somewhat bad circumstance can find at least a sliver of joy (the good kind) today.

    Burl’s is guarded behind his arms so Joy can’t get to it. Obvious.

    Patty got her dad a nice cake. For my Dad’s birthdays I used to cook a leg of lamb (his favorite meal) and he liked a pineapple upside down cake.
    Most of the people here are thankful that they live here among other things. I think there is no place I would rather be, just need to convince my lover of that (assuming he eventually retires). As long as he contiues to keep working I’ll just spend more time going there. After this year I think it will be September and February (the 2 months when either summer or winter are becoming too much in Phoenix as well as my birthday and Valentines).
