Let's NOT talk about the Bears' 36-7 loss yesterday. I'm sure, after all, that wasn't truly the Bears out there on the field yesterday, but, rather, some High School team they hired to substitute for the team, given the bad weather and all.
The weather was SO bad yesterday that I skipped the DuPage County Train Show, which I really had wanted to attend. I still need some minor things for the diorama I want to build, and that's the perfect place to purchase those things. Oh well. There's always January, I suppose.
I STILL don't know why I don't live in Florida. This weather is really lousy.
We set up our Christmas tree over the weekend. It is the most pathetic thing you have ever seen. It's a "Charlie Brown". I will post a picture of this little thing later this week.
The View Finders meeting last Thursday was enlightening and I think this group will be good for me - I hope I can be as good for the group. I understand that recently this group went to a hospital and took family portraits for people who would otherwise not be able to afford to have those portraits taken. I like that.
I've just about finished "The Fig Eater", and as soon as I do, I'm going to read "Cross Fire", by James Patterson. It comes highly recommended by Grannie. (She LOVES James Patterson's books.)
