Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to All

Lil and I have slooowed the blog down for the last two weeks of December. With a new grandbaby (for Lil), and 11 people at 4 consecutive Christmas dinners (for me) we needed to take a deep breath and sigh. But in January our ‘secret gems’ will once again be published weekly as we continue to peek into stores and poke into alleyways to bring the best to you, our readers.

For me, the best part of the Christmas season is time spent with my family, extended family and friends. I treasure the conversations, the games and the laughter that is shared when we get together and know in my heart how precious this time is with loved ones.

I leave you with these quotes from the movie It’s a Wonderful Life starring Jimmy Stuart.

Clarence: [In book inscription] Remember, George: no man is a failure who has friends.

Clarence: Strange, isn’t it? Each man’s life touches so many other lives. When he isn’t around he leaves an awful hole, doesn’t he?

Merry Christmas and Bonne Annee!

Lil & Linda

  1. Sitting in the Vancouver airport on our way back from the wafts of warmth of Baja.
    Happy New Year to you two, bright delights!

    1. Oh, Moe, what a rude shock to return from the warm sunshine of the Baja! But then, you never slow down long enough to notice the temperature outside! You truly should be the poster girl for Everready batteries!
      I join you, Moe, in looking forward to continued good health and many more adventures in 2018 for all of us!
      XO Lil

  2. I love receiving your gems!

    I also love running into you on the streets of wherever we live!
    Looking forward to more of your inspirational posts, no matter what the subject matter!
    Lots of love and laughter to you both in 2018!

    1. Oh, Sarah, you are SO right — it’s wonderful to move to a new home on an island (!) and continue to run into good friends!
      Thank you for your kind comments about our posts. You KNOW how tough this research work can be…….Ha!
      Best of health and fun times in 2018, Sarah!
      Love, Lil
