I was reading about a local woman's husband who goes to a park to practice his bagpipes (I know, you don't hear of many people playing the bagpipes anymore).  He goes to this park that is close to downtown and near an area where a lot of homeless people live.  She says that when he practices, they gather to sit and listen.  I was thinking about them last night while we had some pretty bad weather.  Freezing rain and ice for most of the night.  I'm lucky to have this beautiful home. 

p.s.  That photo is from the real estate appraisal so it's not the best.



All the gifts under the tree say it all.


p.s.  For all of those that think they know me :)'d be surprised to know that only ONE of those gifts is for me!!
