36 Degrees and Raining!

Maybe the end is in sight. Dawn this morning was pretty.

Dawn, Dec 24

I was up and walking around at dawn because I spent the night at my parents' home. We are having natural gas issues (think incomplete combustion/carbon monoxide). I got up to get home to wait for the furnace guy. But we decided it was the hot water heater, and the hot water heater guy will be here later this afternoon. As it is Christmas Eve, I'm amazed. I wasn't pushy or anything, even. And they are busy.

As last night was our family Hanukkah dinner, I had to relocate it. We took over my parents' kitchen, cooked, ate, cleaned up. They hardly knew we were there :-) except they didn't have to cook any dinner.

Ongoing Happy Hanukkah to all!

Okay, so who's the Mah Jongg player? (I have a set at home and never get out to play with anyone...)

Also, what's the bacon-like substance to the left of the latkes on the plate? Not clear.

Just curious.

me. I play the Chinese version (no card). I've got a couple of sets, and never get out to play with anyone, either.

The bacon-like substance is corned beef :-)

I also have "serious" menorah, but this one is more to my taste.
