*I Think it's Thursday, So it Must Be Tuesday*

For quite a long time, my Mondays have been so busy that by evening, I'll look at The Ronald and ask, "Is it Tuesday night?" And he, as always, looks at me like I'm nuts, yet he has to stop and think for a moment before replying, "No. It's Monday. Remember, we're going to watch Monday Night Football in a little while." Oh yeah.

So, although I know I watched part of that wacky football game last night, I'm still feeling like tonight is Thursday night! What can I say? I'm just a mixed up, forgetful, mind-going-in-20-different-directions kind of gal.

But, I did jot myself a note to post about some really cool and unique Christmas cards. This is a perfect time to find out about these particular ones, too, since we just celebrated Veterans Day last week.

Earlier this year, I wrote about Ray "Bubba" Sorensen, the very talented artist in Greenfield, Iowa. He is getting to be more and more well known because of the Freedom Rock he began painting in 1999. He is the artist and creator of the Patriotic Snowman Christmas cards. They are really awesome. They are 5x5 and look suitable for framing. They are $3.00 each, or a pack of 25 for $43.75.


I just know that "Bubba" is going to be world famous someday. And besides being so talented, he and his wife are the sweetest, most down to earth people you will ever meet.
