And, yes. That's a state-of-the-art 8-track tape deck right above my head, and the couch I'm sitting on is the very same one that we sit on at Grandma's now. It was orginally a groovy dirty mustard naugahyde button-tufted glory, but it's since been reupholstered in a fuzzy caramel wide-wale corduroy. I have a curiously keen memory of the many couches of my life.
Today's celebration is Christmas Wishes Come True. Make your wishes carefully, kids, because someday you will look back and wonder exactly what you were thinking when you wanted nothing more in the world than a matronly nightgown and a Muppet. Or perhaps the memory will bring tears of joy.
Anyway, Grandpa had fun teasing the cat with the Muppet. Oh! And crochet was hot then, too! The more things change, the more they stay the same.
Happy December 15
We are approaching single digits!
10 days until Christmas!!
