We had such a fine Christmas! It seemed like I kept hearing different family members comment about how good it was.
We’re all well-the 2 Yale Boys are home where we can see them and sleep better knowing they’re just down the hill from us instead of way up north. We had good food-good music-good love-and much laughter.
The funniest quip of the day came when we were talking about Pap and Granny’s grandkids-back when they were babies.
Chitter reminded everyone that her neck was bent and her head was misshapen because somebody sit on her for nearly 9 months!
Steve’s wife said Guitar Man’s head was misshapen too. She made us all smile-telling us she thought “uh oh this is an ugly baby” until he looked up at her and she instantly fell in love with the most beautiful baby in the world.
Chitter asked her Aunt “Oh well what about Mandolin Man what did he do when he was born?” She said “Oh we didn’t see him for about 30 minutes because they whisked him right away.”
Without missing a beat Mandolin Man said “Yeah that was when they were switching your baby for superman.”
Extry: very good, excellent, especially. “Our Christmas was extry good this year.”
I still hear people in my neck of the woods say extry instead of extra on a regular basis. I heard 2 people say it on Christmas day-Granny and Pap.
