Family


Our niece and nephew and their boys from Charlottesville came for a quick visit last night . . . bringing gumbo made with duck and chicken and sausage!


Josie was entranced with the big boys . . .


They will have a lively New Year's Eve tonight down at Justin and Claui's.


I'll spend today cooking collards and black eyed peas with hog jowl and taking down the Christmas tree -- a quiet ritual I always enjoy. The lights will stay around through January.

Good to hear about cousins enjoying being together. Enjoy your de-decking of the tree tonight. Does the popcorn go out to birds now?

It does indeed -- though the dogs have been known to grab a bit.

Happy new year to you and John and your entire family, including kittehs and pups!
