Sick the eve of Christmas Eve?

I'm getting sick.
We loaded out a semi-truck of straw today. I had to take apart my feed grinding operation and move everything all around, then move it all back. It was really cold and wet. Nasty fog and damp Oregon weather.  I took my employee and a former employee and Sadie to the Chinese Buffet in town. They had really good pepper chicken.
We came home and I started moving everything back. I gave my helper some cash for Christmas and sent him home. I mixed some feed. I made a silly Christmas present for Sadie and I kept feeling worse and worse. Finally I just went in the house found some warm dry clothes and I lay down on the couch and went to sleep.
No Daily Strumpet.
I was going to buy simple presents for Sadie's boy cousins across the machinery lot and a cowboy movie DVD for dad. We are not supposed to be buying presents this year but I was going to defy the ban. I guess it was not meant to be.
I'm going to bed.
Bah Humbug!


  1. My wife and I have practically given up gift-giving, except for the cash we give our 14-year-old granddaughter. We adults either have evrything we need, or we can't afford it anyway. Besides, it's supposed to be about family and the Lord. Hope you get to feeling better.

  2. The goal has been small fun gifts. Once we picked a needy family and it was kind of strange. I think we will pass out some Christmas baskets to some older folks this morning. (Christmas Eve)
