12/12/08-12/25/08---Busy time in Louisiana. Finished putting up lights, shopping and making preparations for the big day. Carol had an elective surgery on December 16th to fix a problem around her right eye. Muscle had not attached from when she had brain surgery two years ago. Her vision is much better now. She healed quickly and was ready for her birthday on December 25th. Yes that is Christmas day. A good time was had by all as the family gathered for Christmas dinner.
