  15. Now that it's the day after Christmas the melancholy starts to lift.... hopefully. Until New Year's Eve... and then it's 'legal' to get drunk. Cheers! Happy Holidays!

  16. Much melancholy here, too many people sick or dying, and I'm grumpy from chopping vegetables...cooked four kinds yesterday, cooking three more today to go with the leftovers. Can't find plain flour to thicken the gravy, hoping self-rising flour or else biscuit mix will do. Should be interesting. Might relieve melancholy.
