Let's do a "4-Way"

This morning, I was on the phone with my mom and two sisters (that's the "4-way," by the way...nothing kinky) finalizing the Christmas Eve time schedule when Bonnie asked if any of us or our any of our kids need a microwave. It seems she has an extra and wants to get it out of her way.

"Here's what you do, Bonnie," I said. "Put a big bow on it and put it under mom's Christmas tree tonight."

"Why?" asked Bonnie.

"The first person who comes in tonight and says, 'WOW! A microwave? Who's getting a microwave?'" I answered, "You look at them and say, 'YOU!'"

Anybody need a microwave? Get thyself to mom's house tonight. There will also be gumbo.

Merry Christmas, everybody!

Did someone say 5-Way? Hey just wanted to wish everyone a Very Merry Christmas. Hopefully we can get together sometime. Stay warm!

Brian doesn't have a microwave! (I've been considering sending a cheap one to Iraq...so he can make some crappy Ramen noodles instead of eating steak at the chow hall.)

If I'd have known there was Gumbo Christmas, I would have pulled the shades and hit the road. We do chili & clam chowder Christmas here. Let's meet in the middle next year, with our cauldrons!

Merry Christmas, you. Love you.

Anyone in the area of my home here in Beaumont on New Years Eve, we had Chicken and Sausage Gumbo left over, so we put it in the freezer and will be warmed up on New Years Eve. And served with potato salad. Merry Christmas and Happy (Chicken and Sausage Gumbo) New Year.
