Christmas cards and Christmas stamps with Our Lady of Guapulo.  I don't send out cards until just before Christmas so that they are delivered hopefully during the Octave.  But going out these days is difficult and I might as well get ahead of the curve!

A pit bull puppy. He's a plumpy, black critter. Named him "Kipper."

I bought airpods (wireless bluetooth ear buds). They even work well with my Windows PC.
In conclusion, I can leave you with no better advice than that given after every sermon by Msgr Vincent Giammarino, who was pastor of St Michael’s Church in Atlantic City in the 1950s:

    “My dear good people: Do what you have to do, When you’re supposed to do it, The best way you can do it,   For the Love of God. Amen.”

I figure I will post this video I have had on private of a guitar I bought and fixed up a few months ago before I sell it.  I had to do a lot of fretwork on it, and make some new parts for it to perform well.  It has been a pretty fun guitar, but it has a bowed neck.  So, before it goes, I will give it its due and show off its best moments.  I hope you enjoy.

I bought a few things for my camera, including a monopod and a made-in-America neoprene case.

I bought felt pads for my kitchen table chairs.  :lol:

More Christmas cards, these from the Benedictines of Mary in MO.  Very nice.  Recommended if you need any.

A new furnace.  House heats more evenly now.
The royal feast was done; the King
Sought some new sport to banish care,
And to his jester cried: "Sir Fool,
Kneel now, and make for us a prayer!"

The jester doffed his cap and bells,
And stood the mocking court before;
They could not see the bitter smile
Behind the painted grin he wore.

He bowed his head, and bent his knee
Upon the Monarch's silken stool;
His pleading voice arose: "O Lord,
Be merciful to me, a fool!"
