Merry Boxing Day 2020

Posted in Just something to say, Pictures with tags , , , , , , , on December 26, 2020 by getbent57

I hope everyone had a fun and safe Christmas with the crazy times we are in.  The weather here was very mild.  As for the dinner, must say it turned out really well.  Cooked a turkey breast with olive oil.  It made it taste awesome.  Didn’t have homemade rolls last year.  This time managed to get some from a local bakery.  Since it is boxing day hot turkey sandwiches are one the menu tonight.

Christmas is not very far way.  Am late to start watching TV specials.  So let’s start with one of my favourites, A Garfield Christmas Special.  No matter how many times I watch this, it still puts a smile on my face.  This is a very important cartoon classic.  That you need to watch.  Which you can do > here or below.

A Christmas Story

Not sure how many times I have blogged about the all time favourite movie, A Christmas Story.  But doing it again.  Last year was a bit late than usual at watching it.  Most years try to see it three to four times.  So my next day off plan to start my Christmas movie/TV favourites watching.  There are a bunch that I like to watch.  If you have stopped by this blog in past Decembers you might know what they are.  But if not will be sharing them in future posts.

Christmas Tree 2020

Posted in Just something to say, Pictures with tags , , , , , , , , , , on December 7, 2020 by getbent57

The first Sunday in December (which was yesterday) it is tradition that we put the tree up.  While there is one less person in the house still need to stick with that rule.  Like last year forgot to buy a new stings of lights.  Thinking I might just do that one day after work and have them for next year.  Have done this so many time have a system.  So it doesn’t take long.  But did run into some trouble.  Tested all the lights by themselves and all attached together.  They worked fine. Then when I put them on the tree the second set wouldn’t work.  So guess what it’s staying that way.   Still think it turned out good.

Merry Boxing Day 2019

I hope everyone had a fun and safe Christmas.  Mine was a big difficult with the resent loss of a family member.  Did our best to keep up with traditional.  As all ways the food was awesome.  There was even enough left over for today.  Made sure to make extra dressing.  The weather was very nice, a bit of sun and no wind.  After eating spent the day listening to the radio.  In the evening watched three movies.

A Garfield Christmas Special

Continuing the Christmas must watch list.  Next up is, A Garfield Christmas Special.  This is a classic I watch every year.  Some people have to watch the Frosty and Rudolph old stop motion.  They call them classic.  Not for me.  Garfield is a thousand times better.  So if missed out on it on TV you can give it a watch > > here or below.

Christmas is getting closer.  Time to start watching some of my all time favourite specials.  One of them is A Muppet Family Christmas.  This one makes me smile very time.  “Careful of the icy patch”, cracks me up.  Have shared this video for years now.  Am still surprised it’s still on YouTube.  Am very happy its still there.  So, go watch this classic > here or below.

A Christmas Story

Time is running short I have yet to watch my all time favourite movie, A Christmas Story.  Most years watch it two to three times.  Not much in the Christmas mood this year.  That being said my be once I watch this again it might do the trick.  There are people I know who have ever seen this.  I tell them it’s a must watch classic.  They seem to think the whole movie is about a BB gun.  Tell them that only a small plot point.  Then tell them that this is the most realistic family to ever be in a movie or TV.
