Christmas In May

Denise got a little taste of retirement life today, when she took a floating holiday off and crisscrossed the town to browse at some estate sales. I think she's found her second career. The highlights were these wonderful Christmas decorations and cards. My favorite? Why, the Silky Chenille Wreath With Santa Plaque, of course. It lights up! Not to be outdone, Mike A., Pat B. and I took a trip down to the St. Vincent de Paul thrift store on Fulton Avenue in Sacramento. Denise and I have found some real treasures there. As providence would have it, they were celebrating the premier of Revenge of the Sith by featuring this authentic Princess Leia bedroom set: And, yes, those are neon pink lights in the headboard, footboard and vanity mirror. P.S. There isn't more to read.

    Does Denise know I already have a real jealousy problem with her? Tell your kids I tap-tap that Chenile thing in case anything happens to you guys. Watch your coffee.

    ┬┐como que? “tap-tap”

    Sorry, but the theology books go to Adam Collins. As for the rest of our gear, you know the kids won’t want it. They have no taste!

    I think the “tap tap” is the same thing as calling “dibs” on something. You know, “I got dibs on dad’s baseball cards when he dies!”
    That kind of thing. Michele is “tap-tapping” your stuff in case you die.
