Toe -rrific

Just got back for the orthopedist. Mr. Wonderful had his big toe x-rayed and it's still in 4 pieces. It may never heal but it doesn't bother him very much. He says he can predict cold and rainy weather now. This is the volley ball base that he dropped on it. It weighs over 100 pounds.

We almost got through the year injury free! We are just thankful that he has been able to function without much pain. He will tell you that it looks like his dream of being a toe dancer is gone now. I don't have the heart to tell him that he wouldn't look good in tights.

Keep our Becky and Emma prayed up today as they fly into New York City.

Your entire gang is prayed up. Charlie in a tutu? LOL! Maybe that broken toe was divine intervention!

I meant to tell you -- a couple of days ago -- that I got my MUG! I have not YET had the opportunity to have 4 o'clock tea with you -- I may make it up by having 9, 10, and 11:00 tea with you tonight! How's that?

I am glad Mr. Wonderful is doing well. But I will have to say that the picture I have in my mind of him in a leotard is not a pretty one!!!
I pray for safe travel for all of you and for a spendiferous Christmas!

How hysterical!! Charlie a toe dancer in tights..well I have a mental picture and it is as funny as picturing me in the same outfit!!
WE are leaving tomorrow sometime and just going to Forsythe, Ga. We are going to take our time because we know that the weather we are going into is NOT going to be fun for us. So taking time this trip. You have a great trip..I think you are going into some bad snow too..Did you see that Las Vegas Had 3.5 inches of snow today? I bet they were the desert!! WOW!!
Have a safe trip..Write when you can...

I'm glad to hear that Mr. Wonderful's injury isn't causing pain. I got a giggle at the ballerina image! I feel a sizzle of excitement, imagining your family converging on New York through the weekend for Christmas together. Enjoy your Christmas and your time together, Daisy.
