December 24, 2016: Happy Night Before Christmas!

Last night, Akemi and I enjoyed dinner with some thoroughly charming company.

Also, the guy she married.

Yes, we had dinner with my old high school friend, Lawrence (a.k.a. Buddy) and his better half, Mel (a.k.a. Mrs. Buddy).  We enjoyed drinks, jerk wings, hilarity (of course) and a double order of chocolate-espresso mousse.

Then today, I set aside a couple of hours to watch Ron Murphy’s director’s cut of our season opener.  Hoowee!  A LOT going on in this one.

I leave you with…Christmas Dogs!

    Chocolate-espresso mousse? That sounds like *want*.

  4. Thanks for sharing the adorable pics of the babies. Where’s Andria’s newest 4 legged family addition this year??

    Merry Christmas to you and your family. Have a bet going with a blog sib about what time you will fall asleep after eating all of Mamma Mallozzi’s cooking tonight and tomorrow.

    Last year on Christmas day you actually made it till about 2 pm before curling up on the couch for a nap.. 🙂


  5. Merry Christmas to all!

    Is it my imagination, or are Suji’s front shoulders more muscular than her hind quarters? (That would make sense with her history.)

    Passed my 69th birthday (23 Dec.) so quietly, even I could barely hear it. Still recovering from the nasty bug that flattened me a week ago. Hoping Husband is not coming down with it.


  6. Oh, the crying tantrum the dog threw when I told her she couldn’t come with us to Mammaw and Pappaw’s. She was crying and throwing herself against the door and window. I was afraid she wouldn’t be allowed into the Clifton Mills Christmas lights display later. But my husband couldn’t let the injustice stand and he’s going to stop home after work to bring her here and we’ll just stick to the outside of the Christmas lights display.

  7. Happy Birthday Gilder!! and many more..

    @Lise – I’ve emailed you but know how these things go missing 🙂

  11. Merry Christmas to you and your family. Very nice pictures. I know about being not well on a day like this as my sister is suffering from a pinch nerve in her arm, husband sick from internal infection and her son on the carrier “IKE” is in Washington and won’t be here till Friday. Best wishes.

  12. @baterista9 Happy Birthday Gilder. you share the same birthday as my daughter Eva marie.Hope you feel better soon.

    @pbmom Gonna keep my guess under wraps to ensure there’s no chance of influencing it… Albeit if I post a vid of me doing a victory dance – you’ll know why eh. 😀

    @Tam – Hope migraines eased up today. sending warmest christmas hugs n love.

    @Narell Tam mentioned your pups were sick? So sorry to hear it. How are they doing?

  13. @Narellefromaus Wave warmly both figuratively and literally to you.

    @Drea That is wild — my SISTER is Eva Marie.

  14. @PBMom Thanks for the birthday wishes. Patrick and I have the same birthdate – 17 Dec?

    @baterista9 Happy belated birthday! Hugs, as well, as we seem to be suffering from similar nasty viruses – I’m still feeling wiped out! 🤒
