 Remember this photo ? Dad and Nicolas just stating out in basketball.
The one on the left , not finger guy and son.

 He really listens and now a seasoned player. Number 11
Nice move like a dance
He has the ball--
He is in second grade and going to be tall like his dad.

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace
as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with
hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Rom. 15:13

I am the Lord your God, who takes hold of your right hand and
says to you, "Do not fear; I will help you"

to Mildred and some others:
 We now know it is a "Helleborous--Lenten Rose

Some time call the Christmas Rose. I pass the walkway often
but had not seen it ,could have thought it was a green  weed 
before it bloomed.
How nice to see , they even say it can be seen blooming  in snow.

Looks like the tulips bulbs are popping out of the ground,
the gardener came in with a truck of mulch so they will
all be covered up soon.

The Bennie

is better and my shoulder is to, Hoping all had a good
first day of  the New Year.

We are getting lots of rain this week with storms today.

No fun get together this coming week, partied out but lots of
loud firetrucks and ambulance. We were called up on to get help
twice. Christmas Eve a neighbor fell and the door was locked
The firemen got their hatch & crowbar  and broke the door down.
Then the ambulance took her away. She had broken her hip.

On New Years morning the lady next door said I think I am having
a stroke , would you know if you were having a stroke? I don't know
if I would. The firetruck came  then the ambulance, the men came
 running in to the house pass the lady sitting in the living-room to
the bedroom. Had to smile, bless their hearts, they took her to hospital.
She didn't have a stroke but they are checking her out.

A week before Christmas  the lady two doors down died and the firetruck and
ambulance came, this lady and her husband  had  just moved in two weeks before
 Praying that the year will now be a well and happy one for our neighbors
and blog land as we move in to 2017.
