For Christmas, I have decided to give my daughters a large sum of money. They can apply it to their next trip abroad or to any other needs that have to be addressed.
Life is short. Why be so parsimonious, when I don’t have to be?
I had to laugh when a friend saw my red tablecloth and suggested that I use a white tablecloth in the future. After all, he said, when we enter a fine dining restaurant, we always see white tablecloths, not red. I told him that red would be less stressful for me, because it would not show stains. This is a photo of David, Mike, and Suzanne at my dinner party in 2015. How do you like the red?
On the other hand, my Quaker lace tablecloth is stain resistant. These are photos of guests at my Christmas party in 2008. David, my mother, Lisa, and Pat:
Maria, Grant, little Julia, Charles, and Robert:
