A blessed Sabbath, Gerbil Nation!
I see Mac’s kittehs arrived for their visit -- and in a handy carrying case, too!

After church I’m going over to Mrs. Paddy’s church to help with the Christmas decorations. For the last several years I’ve helped hang a wreath (48″ diameter) on the cross in the sanctuary (about 12 feet up, using an extension ladder, against a curved wall). I started when a good friend of mine, who just turned 80, was going to do it by himself. Well, my friend is recovering from by-pass surgery, so Teh Older will help this year.

Oooh…an eight-pack of kittehs! I can cross that off my shopping list; thanks, Mac!

Planning on a quiet “slug day”, which I really need.

BBL.

Happy Sunday, GN! Good morning Paddy and Fatwa. Cute kittens -- I’ve never had a kitten -- all of our cats came to us more or less fully grown.

Hiya, Paddy and Sven!

Sorry…didn’t notice Paddy had snuck in here just ahead of me earlier.

Hope the wreath-hanging goes smoothly with the new assistant.

A couple of weeks ago during the fires, our power was on but the cable was off for a few days. For entertainment, we popped in the first season DVDs of Sons of Anarchy. I hadn’t watched that series in years and had forgotten how good the first season really was and how much promise that story held.

We’ve been binge watching the next 6 seasons and finished Season 7 today. A lot of dead weight, absurd story lines, and plot twists, but some very good storytelling in between it all. I’d say Seasons 1 and 2 are the best, tightly written with a realistic and manageable plot. Season 3 is when the doors begin to come off with more killings, more explosions, and more tangled plot lines. It’s where Sutter begins to apply what I call the “Die Hard treatment” to his story, going bigger and bloodier than is really necessary.

The last 3-4 episodes of Season 7 do kind of pull it all back together as Jax learns the truth of how Tara died and that he really has no way out. Sad stuff.

If you haven’t watched SOA, do yourself a favor and give Season 1 a whirl -- well worth it.
