We got out and did a little Christmas shopping Tuesday. I’m having a lot of trouble finding anything for my Mother. What do you get an 82 year old woman who hardly leaves the house?
She had a birthday on the 18th of the month, so I used up any ideas I had on her birthday. It’s the same every year. I find her some gifts, then give them to her for her birthday and then have to start all over!
Al and I aren’t really exchanging gifts this year. We’ve bought ourselves enough for one year! I did buy him a book for his e-reader. It’s called One Second After by William Forstchen. He had heard it was very good. It’s about Electro Magnetic Pulses.
We read a series of books a few years ago by author Terri Blackstock. The first of the series of 4 books was called, Last Light. Electro magnetic pulses caused most everything in the world to quit working. Airplanes dropped from the sky, generators didn’t work, cars didn’t run. We all depend so much on electronics, that if we were to lose them, we’d all be in big trouble. Anyway, it makes for interesting reading.
We have been enjoying unseasonably warm temperatures here in Florida this year, and enjoying every minute of it. Last December was pretty cold. You just never know what the weather is going to be like at Christmas. The forecast for next week in the Keys is low 80’s during the day and low 70’s at night. The nights will be quite a bit warmer than here, but the days will be pretty much the same. We’re hoping it holds up.
