A Very Biomes Christmas:
Picked up my son and my brother, who have both become city people now, to drive them down to Mom’s and sis’. Hunted for coffee (Starbucks was the only thing open and thanks to finding Buy Blue, they will be getting my business for two reasons now. Three if you count the coffee was damn good). Christmas music included Nora Jones, Van Morrison, Lyle Lovett and Graham’s new six-disc Star Wars sound track (No real christmas music in other words, to the relief of all). They have one of those unreal CD players that holds 400 disks, which they programed and it just played all day. Mom’s angel hair and lobster tails, gifts (one for each and no more is the rule. I got me an updated Photoshop program. Yay.) and then a massive game of Taboo.
The wood duck house I got her last year has been taken over by squirrels, even though we set it up on the edge of the salt marsh in front of her house. What are you gonna do? Spotted a red-bellied woodpecker, marsh hawk and golden-crowned kinglet while we were there. Overall success.
Although I had asked Santa for one of these. No luck, the cheapskate.
