Yesterday, 12/26/99, was the celebration of our wedding anniversary.
Thirty-nine years of wedded bliss, well mostly. We celebrated simply and
quietly as I am down with severe sinus drainage and a sore throat. For
lack of a better culprit I am blamin it on all the folks with fireplaces
burning up all that wood. We often get an inversion layer here that
holds the smoke close to the ground and that's been the case for the
last several days.

Anyhow, our daughter was here to celebrate Xmas and our anniversary with
us and went back to Houston area yesterday. Her eldest son was coming in
from Montana on a 10 pm flight so she had to pick him up. The other two
kids will be back on January 5. They had already been gone a week and
the daughter was missing them a lot. Tomorrow is her birthday, she was
born one year and two days after we married but we still get some funny
looks when we tell people her birth day. <VBG>

We're still happy and hope all of you are. Gotta get going as I have a
batch of kumquat marmalade cooking and am going to make a batch of honey
lemon marmalade after that. Life is bery, bery good.
