Merry Christmas!

Christmas Eve at the Inn 

Merry Christmas everyone!

Just got up and ready to eat breakfast.  Got in late last night from work.  My co-worker Robert stopped in around 10 pm for visit.  He was in town (Lewes) to attend the 11 pm Christmas Eve Mass at St. Peter's Episcopal Church which is only a block from the hotel.  

It was a slow night at the hotel (as it usually is on Christmas Eve), so I took the opportunity to take several pictures of Robert in his new glasses for his Christmas card next year.  What do you think? I LOVE to take pictures and I had a willing subject.


Robert (my co-worker) at the Inn last night

After breakfast this morning, Bill and I are going to take a ride to Milton to look for a lost cat.  A few days ago I received an e-mail (along with many others in this area) about a lost tuxedo cat.  Yesterday when Bill and I were at the Food Lion in Milton I thought I saw that cat.  I circled around the street but lost site of him.



I called Carrie, the lady who lost the cat, and told her where I sighted him which was between Federal Street and Mulberry Street.  I wasn't sure it was her cat and I didn't want to be absconding with someone's pet.  When I told her where I saw that cat, she said she lived on Mulberry Street!  So Bill and I are going Cat Hunting on this Christmas morning.  This is what is called a Purposeful Life.

Hope you all are have a wonderful Christmas Day with friends and family!

We're off to look for a lost kitty this Christmas morning.  Wish us luck!

    1. Nadege,

      I was so hoping we could find her cat. I did see it when we were returning from shopping the other day. We'll keep looking because where I saw the cat is only a few blocks from the supermarket. Yes, Robert is a cutie. Nice guy too. Very funny. Dry sense of humor which I live.

  4. Ron,

    Chance are the cat will find its way home. I'm Blogging again, both at Night Writing and Drinking of Elder men. Beginning to get back to normal. Been pretty sick the last three days. Not the best Christmas present. My girls worked today too, at the shelter. Some people do it for good reasons, some people are forced to do it for greed. Read my Blogs.

    1. Glad to hear you're starting up your blogs again. Hope you're well soon and life gets back to normal. Of course we are going over the Fiscal Cliff in a week so maybe things won't be normal again. Then again, I guess this is the New Normal.

  6. Hi Ron. I hope you had a good Christmas! I had a story I wanted to send your way. Check your e-mail when you get a chance. I mean the AOL one you've mentioned.) Look for a message from "sean" "dot" "rudd" "at" "verizon" "dot" "net". I put it up this way to hopefully defeat any spambots that encounter this.

    1. Sean,

      Looking forward to seeing your story. Didn't see it yet in my e-mail. I'll keep looking.

    2. BTW, I apologize for the jumbled-up punctuation marks. I edited this in MS Word, and then pasted it into my e-mail program and didn't look carefully. That's a rookie mistake for sure.

    3. Thanks for letting me know Sean. I haven't had a chance to read your story yet. I will get back to you.

  7. I like the photos of Christmas Eve at the Inn. What a beautiful tree!
    I really hope that you find the missing cat. It's so nice of you and Bill to search for it.
    There were numerous times when I thought my cat was missing (she is incredibly good at hiding) and I actually panicked!

    1. Jon,

      The Inn always has a beautiful tree. That's "my" Christmas tree since I seem to spend more time at the Inn than I do at home during the Christmas season. I also have a selection of Christmas music that plays over the sound system on the first floor of the hotel.

      I thought we lost out little Pom puppy once. She was spooked by an overhead hot air balloon. Thankfully, and much relieved, we found her the next morning. She was hiding behind bushes next to the house ALL NIGHT. We were panicking. I know what it's like to lose a pet. Very sad.

    1. Harper's Keeper,

      Unfortunately we did not find her cat but I'm hopeful that we will. It's raining now (I hope the cat has shelter). We'll go looking again when the weather is better.

  9. I guess I'll have to tell my cat stories at the March gathering. Because I am not so sure I'd go looking for one of those predators! HAHAHAHAHAHA

    Great pics for your co-worker. And I've worked so many holidays, not voluntarily, that I know how it is to sit and do nothing just because the post has to be manned.

    MERRY CHRISTMAS!
    Peace <3

    1. Paul,

      Unfortunately we didn't find that cat but we're hopeful we will. Finding that lady's cat would have been such a wonderful Christmas for her. We're not giving up hope though. I feel confident her cat will reappear.

  11. Hi, I popped over from Paul's blog. Nice to meet you. I really do hope you found the cat. I hate it when pets get lost.

    Yuletide greetings.

    1. Hi Valerie. Welcome to my blog world! We haven't found that cat yet but I am hopeful. It's raining now. Maybe tomorrow we'll go out and look. I think someone in the neighborhood is feeding it.
