I spent a quiet Christmas visiting with a friend. It was absolutely dead at my house.
My friend fashioned a tree out of a cactus while I cooked an omelet breakfast. It didn't look like much but it was tasty.
I received some wonderful presents from friends and a couple of my siblings. A running vest, a novel, a sweater and a few other useful items.
For the first time I drank a beer that had a cork and wire as its closure. It was tasty.
I spoke with a couple of family members. My brother visited my sister out west and everyone else seems to have spent Christmas at home.
Happy holidays to everyone. I'm looking forward to 2015.
