I got to eat my final meal of the old year at this table. My uncle's house was way above and beyond what I was expecting. I knew they'd worked on it for a couple years, and I'd seen all the pictures of it, but I was quite blown away by how beautiful it is. Mom noticed first that in the room they call the "hearth room", they have the same chair and ottoman that I bought for my new place. That's kinda cool, says me. Thanks, Uncle Paul and Aunt Nancy, for inviting us over! Hopefully we'll be around more often now. Oh, and a happy new year to you, of course. I'm starting the new year with Mass with the family followed by a horsey ride at the Grasslands with Prairie and Katie and possibly with dad, Rita and Billy.
