I exchanged gifts with my longest follower, Jacky, from http://dickybirdsnest.blogspot.com/2014/12/thank-you-felicia.html. She sent me so many nice things, that I'll show you in a photo below. Randy got me a Smartphone, so now I can keep up with things better. I am writing this from the laptop since it's easier to see, but the phone makes better photos than my camera so I hope to be able to download those here. I'm really slow at learning tech things, so it might take awhile to change my ways! (I didn't get the photos downloaded from my phone!)
I hope you all are having a wonderful holiday season with your loved ones, and staying safe and warm! I send you hugs, warm thoughts, and Blessings from Bama!
