Actually I have three pretty good reasons for being slow posting today.
First, I'm still working my way through all the great posts and comments from last Friday's Deja Vu Blogfest. Finding lots of new and interesting blogs as I go. (Hi to all my new friends.)
Second, I took some time this morning to drive a couple of my grandkids to a local family homeless shelter. The kids had sorted through their "pre-loved" toys and stuffed animals and set aside several bags to give to the children who were spending Christmas without a home. A good reason, don't you think? (Yeah, I was proud.)
Third, I was up until 3:00 this morning doing my annual search for pictures for my Christmas letter. (Yes, I'm just now writing the letter, so you see this post is not the only thing I'm behind on). This would seem to be an easy task. I'm a regular shutterbug, especially with the family, so there are lots of shots to choose from. But therein lies the problem. Which pictures best reflect everything the family has been up to all year? And then there's that other issue - God forbid I end up with more of one kid than another. This is serious stuff.
Serious stuff I should have been doing several weeks ago. (Darn home improvement project.) So I'd better get back to it.

Groaner of the Day: Two men were out hunting in the woods. One of them was a fanatical huntsman. The other was his friend, a peaceful nature loving fellow who didn't really want to hurt anything.
They had been out in the woods for some time when they picked up the tracks of a deer. They soon caught up with it, and it was easy to tell why the animal had been so easy to track. The deer had been injured and obviously could not see out of one eye.
The hunter started to take aim but his friend begged him to stop.
"It just wouldn't be fair," he said. "Can't you see that's a bad eye deer?"
