I went to my brother-in-laws funeral visitation in September. A niece was snapping all kinds of pictures. My younger sister was there and she got a picture of the two of us. It turned out pretty good. We should have gotten one with my older sister too but guess no one thought of that.

I am great uncle to 12 of my sister's great grandchildren. Here is a picture of the latest one born in November. She says No. 13 is on the way in February and will be a little girl. None of them live near me so I don't get to see them except in pictures most of the time. I don't get around the stores where they shop either or I would run into them now and then. The family is really growing.

I have been to many trade shows and what really catches my attention are the trade show booths. They certainly are the most important part of the show and the trade skirts catch your eye right away if they have a bright distinguishing logo on them. Also banner stands are another way to catch customers attention. However, if those in charge of the trade show booths want something more easy, yet colorful and spectacular to catch everyone's eyes, they can use pipe and drape. These can be set up in a "L" shape and using bright colors will immediately capture the attention of everyone passing by. I have seen most all of these displays at trade shows and I love the colors and bright logos.

Christmas is just around the corner now and it's cold enough to make you think you're at the north pole. Santa will have to bring us back with the toys. I have to swing by the grocery store for provisions or starve. I hate the thought of even going out because my bad lungs will scream about the cold and make me wish I stayed inside. Lots of things to do to pass the time. I have about 20 things I want to read on various subjects of interest to me. Any regular time I try to read I get sleepy and have to quit. Today is one of those days I can read a long time and just get it done. Usually when I really feel like reading, someone calls and needs my help right away or sooner. Well, like I just said, there goes the phone and my friend needs my help so see ya later.

The other day the weatherman said a little rain and maybe some light snow but that all missed us. Then a few days later we got freezing rain and they topped it off with about 8 inches of snow. I guess they call that payback since the first 2 or 3 storms missed us. It's now noon and the temps up to 15 degrees and I think 18 is supposed to be the day's high. We've got a very light snow in the air now that we don't need around here unless you ask a farmer. They all say the ground is so dry that it could be a bad year for crops. The weather people are predicting a drought this summer. If that happens the poor farmers will have to live on some of the profits they've had the last few years with the bumper crops.The ones that suffer the most are retiree's that don't have a pension to back up their Social Security. We will get a raise this year of maybe $15 or $20 a month after they get done messing with it. While congress will get $1500 to $2000 a month for a raise, it just doesn't seem right. Hey, that's what life's all about.
