My Pop-Up Experiment
When I arrived for Christmas dinner at David and Thom's there was a very complicated pop-up book on the table that had been sent to them by David's daughter, Martha. I was enthralled with it and examined it as much as I discreetly could as converstion flowed around me. This is two views of my attempt to grasp the concept, and I guess I managed the very basic idea. I'm not sure I will work at this, since I can see that it would involve months of work, if not years, to gain any kind of expertise.
We had a very nice Christmas dinner with Sydney and Richard, who are both in their usual high spirits despite there very serious health problems. I was very touched as we drank a toast to ourselves before we ate, everyone with there own private thoughts about how lucky we were to be together. We all have our own families who are flung far and wide, but this has become our own tradition. We are a family, too.
