* My Beloved Pal, Vern -- Always at My Side *


I posted this photo on Oct 19th but I just had to do it again today. With all the time I'm spending clicking away on my laptop, Vern and I are spending lots of time in this spare bedroom/office and I love it. The daybed is almost directly parallel to the top of my desk (tiny kitchen table, actually!) It's so much easier for us to see each other, and allows Vern to keep a watch out the window, too! This is in the front of our townhouse. He sees all. He knows all. 

Since my post last month, I've discovered something very interesting about Mr.Vern. He loves Christmas music! Especially oldies like the songs included in The Time Life Treasury of Christmas. I log into Pandora, make my music selection, and voila', Vern is off to slumber land!

And just why am I listening to Christmas music before Thanksgiving?? It goes all the way back to high school. In October, at the first sign of really cold, wintry weather, one of my girl friend's and I would grab a couple of our Christmas LPs and start listening to them. I've been doing it ever since then, although I normally get aggravated at all the stores for having Christmas decorations out so early. But, this year I'm enjoying it! I'm embracing it! What can I say? Yes, I know. I'm an enigma. That's what The Ronald says all the time! 

Have a beautiful, blissful day!
