I fell asleep in my chair this weekend and woke up at 11:15 p.m., heading to bed, with not such a nice word—I forgot to write my column.

I hope everyone is doing great. I had the best time with my sister Maryanne and my brother-in-law Jon, spending three days in New York City for the holidays. Friday we went to see the show “Beautiful, the Carol King Story,” and it was amazing. During intermission Jon asked what we were doing on Saturday, and we said we did not have any plans.
Merry Christmas and a very happy, healthy new year to all—the healthy part is what I am going for in 2019. I have to go get another MRI on my ear. The doctors think I still have a mastoiditis infection of the skull bone behind the ear. This coming year will be better, and it’s up to me to make it that way. December 30 I turn 59.
Last Friday night Pastor Phyllis and I went out for a Christmas dinner at Three Wishes, the food was so good and so was the dessert. On our way there the weather started to get a bit nasty with light snow. When we left, the snow was a little harder just sticking to the road. FYI the roads in PA stink, they were so bad.
I write this column with a heavy heart, as my friend and former co-worker Nancy Simonet passed away recently. Nancy was married to her husband Jeffery for 54 years, and together they have three kids and seven grandkids.
I finally got TV back. DIRECTV technical support is not one of my favorite places to have to call on Tuesday night. Finally on Saturday a very nice guy named Gonzalo came and fixed the problem. The problem was they had to put a bigger pipe over the smaller pipe and they attached it with 1 screw. And the dish tilted.
I am on my fifth day of eating my mother’s sausage stuffing. I ate it as I was making it on Wednesday, had it again on Thanksgiving, lunch on Friday, lunch on Saturday and in Thanksgiving soup on Sunday and will most likely have it again Monday. I also freeze some.
I was watching Direct TV Cinema and the “Winnie the Pooh” trailer came on, featuring Winnie mumbling his famous “What to do, what to do?” He is so right. What do I do for Thanksgiving? What do I do for Christmas Eve, and what do I do for Christmas Day?
How are you all doing, I just got over that horrible cold that comes with a sore throat and cough. Hope I am done for the year.
I finally did it. I joined the breakfast club at the Fosterdale Café for breakfast on Friday mornings. There were 10 of us. I had a ham and egg on a buttered roll—something so simple, but it was so yummy. There were waffles, blueberry pancakes, eggs, sausage and mouth-watering-looking bacon. We talked, we laughed and we had a great time.
