The clouds part to let the new year in. Looks like we will have a break in the rain, should be dry on Sunday.

Jay went to visit his brother in Idaho. They went to church on Christmas, when Jay spotted someone he thought he recognized. He went up to her and it was "Mom" Nevins the former GTY doughnut queen.
When she retired from GTY we gave her, the then modern gift, a VCR. She used to help mail the reciepts and thank yous.
She sends greetings to those at GTY.

Christmas on Sunday at GCC. For those who do not attend GCC, the choir loft holds 125, and the wreaths are 15 feet tall, that should give some size perspective. And yes, on the stage is a concert grand piano and a harp. There is always discussion how many the room will hold; I'm told if people keep their Bibles and purses off the pews, it will seat 3,500.

Just what the underprivileged of Valencia need - free ice skating, free lessons, free snacks, free ice bumper cars, and free pictures with the Christmas Gnome. We had a great evening enjoying the freeness.
The event was sponsored by Power Automotive. We are looking to buy a car soon, maybe they'll give us a deal.

C1 and C2 wait calmly while Kerry gets her teeth cleaned. After 32 years I've had to change to a new dentist. Dr Hunt (in Burbank) finally retired. The new dentist in the office was not nearly as good, so we decided to look for a new one. My assistant liked her new dentist, so we decided to give him a try.
He is very good. The boys like him and I found him to be very good.
His front office is kid friendly, good books and coloring sheets, and an open space to play. Plus a staff that understands children.

Today is our staff party. It is also our last time at Disneyland for perhaps a year; we are not renewing our passes this year. Breakfast at Carnation is one of our favorite things to do. As always, Oscar, DL's longest serving cast member - 50 years, came by our table to make sure that everything was fine.

We stopped by our local Starbucks (well one of our 12 local SBUX), and they were having a party. Free tall holiday drinks, a coffee tasting class, and lots of free samples of their baked goods. Plus as an added feature live Christmas music by a member of our church. A caffinated time was had by all.
