CIJ: One of my Favorite Commericals

July 30, 2009

I remember this commercial from Folgers..and it is one of my most favorites partially because my dad would make coffee Christmas morning and after we opened our presents My Dads Best Friend Hunting and Fishing buddy “Grandpa” Charlie would come over and bring goodies to me and Dad and Grandpa Charlie would drink coffee and play a game of Cribbage and I would sit on Dad’s lap sneaking a sip out of his coffee.. Ahh great memories..

CIJ: I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas

July 26, 2009

It has been at least 10+ years since I have had a White snowy Christmas.And Even longer than that for Mister Electrician.Sure Christmas in a joyous time of the year but just once I would like to see snow or have it snow on Christmas.Living in Florida we knew that was quite impossible. But now that we live in Missouri we usually see snow around January or February well in my 3years of being here. Yes snow is wet and it’s cold but it is oh so pretty to see  and how the sun glistens on it or even the moon light reflection upon freshly fallen snow.When I  lived in Idaho  my Dear Dad would go outside on Christmas Eve and make “reindeer” prints in the snow and Christmas morning he would show me that yes Santa Claus did visit our house.Those were some very memorable times. I guess I’m just wishing for the snow that way I can pass on the “reindeer” prints to show my own children.The two older ones may not be convinced but I’m sure that the youngest one would believe.And I’m sure that Dad would be watching from Heaven Smiling upon us and remembering the times that he would do that for me. So MotherNature if your listening please give me a White Christmas this year. Thanks
