I started a post a couple of weeks ago - pictures and all and when finished I must have hit a wrong button and there went my long post down the computer to no man's land.  Thoroughly discouraged I walked away from blogging for a couple of weeks.

Well I am back.  This has not been a great December with the horrible shooting and death of 26 people.  I can't get it out of my mind and it has drastically reduced my pleasure in Christmas this year as I am sure it has done for many of you.  When I heard the IRA  speech the other night with their only suggestion to putting an armed guard in every school I was very upset.  What next?  An armed guard at every dance studio, music lessons, etc.?   Every where a child would be?  Pretty soon every child would need an armed bodyguard.  I am sure you can gather from this that I am very upset.  I am trusting that our President Obama will stand up and do something to try and stop this.  I am sure we all agree something must be done.  As the mother of 3 and grandmother of 6 I say it has to stop.

I had decided not to decorate as extensively as in the past and just put out a few of my favorite things.  This I have done.  Years ago I bought 3 beautiful old Christmas ornaments at an antique show and I have always put them in my living room at home on the sofa table behind the sofa.  I have stayed down here for Christmas for the last 3 years so bought them down with me this year..  I put them in their usual wine glasses with some cellophane and they are on the bakers rack in the sun room.  They remind me of home.

I am sooooo in agreement with you on the damn guns! I wish we could push a button to make them all go away. I'm sick of all the guns, the killings, the macho mentality as if the guns and owners are above all others, the NRA intimidation, etc. Piers Morgan was correct when he called Larry Pratt a stupid man. Oh shucks - don't get me started!! There goes my blood pressure, hehe!
