Mary and I just arrived home to Florida after campaigning around the country most of the year for conservative candidates. Our pet/house sitter did an excellent job keeping our animals (greyhound, three cats and three birds) happy and our home in order.
A large tree in our backyard died and fell. Thank God it did not hit our house. Mary gets really nervous whenever I play with ladders, chainsaws and fire. Still, I safely used my chainsaw to cut up and stack the fallen tree. I dealt with various other neglected homeowner projects.
It was refreshing taking a break from my 24/7 focus on fighting Obama and company's 24/7 attacks on our freedoms and destruction of our country. Please note that I only took a break. Every patriot must stay engaged fighting to save our country.
I dug the Christmas tree and decorations out of our backyard storage shed. The radio in my shed and car are on the all Christmas music station.
I turned 66 years old October 31st. I do not know if this is due to my age, but I noticed something a bit different in my emotions this year. For some unexplained reason, the classic Christmas songs performed by the likes of Nat King Cole, Dean Martin, Bing Crosby, Andy Williams and others mean much more to me than they did in the past.
Mary informed me that my Christmas gift to her is a new pair of leather boots. Because my beautiful awesome wife deserves everything I can give her, accompanying her in her quest to find the perfect boots has caused me to boldly go where few men have gone before; numerous shoe stores and malls packed with shoppers, aromas of sweet delights and long lines of parents with their very excited loud kids waiting to chat and take a picture with Santa.
“Honey, we have already gone to Macy's, Dillard's and the others.” “Yes, but not every Macy's and the others carry the same boots” she replied. “Oh, okay”, I replied.
I do not enjoy shopping. Witnessing Mary's extraordinary diligence has been fascinating. First, she spent hours on the internet researching. She is probably informed enough to give a seminar on boot manufacturers and designers.
Something else I have detected is that when we are in the malls/stores, Mary is truly enjoying herself. So, this is my Christmas gift to my wife, not just the boots, but hanging out with her in the stores in her quest to purchase the boots. While Mary would never pressure me to shop with her, I know she really appreciates me accompanying her, even though I wander off for awhile; watching football on the store TVs and so on.
No, we have not found her perfect boots; wrong color, sold out in her size, not quite the right style and the calf part is too large.
Meanwhile, I am excited to announce that Mary and I will be flying out to Reno, Nevada to host the December 31st – Conservative New Year's Eve Party. You can watch the special 8-hour broadcast live from anywhere in the world online at our website: http://bit.ly/1luQguK
The program will air from 3:00 PM - 11:00 PM Eastern (12:00 Noon - 8:00 PM Pacific), which will give you time to still watch the ball drop at Times Square in New York City at Midnight, or whatever other New Years evening plans you might want to make.
Bottom line: this New Year's Eve, you need not watch the mainstream TV networks with hosts and guests who will inject their liberal propaganda into everything, raising your blood pressure, especially as they review the events of the year. No, instead, our national conservative family is getting together for a massive celebration of our values, our victories and our plans heading into 2015!
The Conservative New Year's Eve Party will feature some of the leading conservatives from around the nation. We'll be unveiling these special celebrity guests in the days to come.
Please join us by watching The Conservative New Year's Eve Party folks. It is going to be fun! https://www.facebook.com/events/1528040540782265
Maybe we will be more successful shopping for Mary's perfect boots in Nevada rather than Florida.
