Here I sit in a quiet house the cat and the dog are sleeping and snoring away , it's nippy out 24F, and I am suppose to be at band practice , Another migraine, I thing it's the let down head pain, from Breakfast with Santa, I worked both days, very hard, getting up at 5:30 am and getting done around 1:30 pm,Right now I am not fond of the smell of cooked sausages or the sight of scrambled eggs.
We made around 2,000.00 dollars half for the Local Food Pantry and half goes to the Disabled Vets at the Veterans hospital in Madison,to help with things they need. This is the best Year we had since we began this, something Both the Masons and the Rotary can be proud of, Our children helped on Sunday, Rob , Mary , Rob's friend's Meg and Dani, Dani's daughter Lily and friend Mike. Mary and Lily worked serving and clearing off tables, with Mary also serving coffee.Mary also watched over Lily as she has done in the past bringing her home to our house when she was getting tired and grumpy. Rob took on with help from Dani the cooking on the grill, Meg and myself cracked eggs and cooked the scrambled eggs, Meg did a lot dishes, while Dani got the grill cleaner that I have ever seen it. Everyone helped out where it was needed. Clean up on Sunday went smoother than it has in past years.
On another positive note, we were able to get a new dish washer from free cycle, ours finally died, after 20 + years, the door won't close anymore. This one is about 10 years old looks to be in pretty good shape, Told Chuck that his Christmas present to me would be to get in hooked up.

I am thinking of cleaning up the computer room for him as my Present , things are a little tight this year, so homemade things and ideas are going to be the way. Well talk to you later.

Congratulations on the new dishwasher! It's wonderful having a working one--we spent weeks buying parts/sending them back/trying something else, till we finally got the right one and the thing worked again. I learned in the meantime to appreciate its working self.

And congratulations on the fundraising and the good cause. Work like that is so needed.
