There are apples hanging on our tree for a reason. My husband's uncle Ralph owned and operated a company called Jantzi Apple Butter Factory in Wellesley, Ontario for many years. Gary has wonderful memories as a kid hanging around there and lending a hand when necessary. Gary's uncle died at the age of 56. He was in the prime of his life when he passed away from a heart-attack while vacationing in Arizona. We all miss him and at Christmas he is in our thoughts.
I added a couple of new ornaments to my kitchen tree
There is a lot of washing up around here in the morning. While I have my coffee the kitties eat and then an hour of grooming begins. They know something is in the air.
I think they are getting their coats ready to meet the BIG GUY.
