Sunday Stealing: For Those Who Celebrate Christmas

Gift Wrap


Today's accomplishment was the wrapping of the presents! I was going to do it yesterday, but the day got all the way away from me. That happens to me a lot when I'm on vacation. I make a lot of grandiose plans and then, before I know it, it's lunchtime.

About five minutes after that, it's 4:45 and time for the end of Wagon Train. We only watch the end, which usually involves Jesus in some way, but today a bad guy fell off a cliff and the heroine snapped out of her depression. Good stuff!

Then it's time for Adam-12 and the adventures of Pete Malloy and Jim Reed, LAPD cops, attending to 211s in progress and possible 459s, and requesting Code 7 (aka lunch). The theme song is an instrumental, so I made up some lyrics:

Adam-12! Adam-twe-elve!
Adam 12! It's really Adam-12!
Pete and Jim - they are Adam-12!
Fighting crime, all the time -
It's Adam-12!!

It'll make sense if you sing these insightful lyrics with the theme song. Honest.


I have to give Joe the credit for inspiring the wrappening. Right after lunch he informed me that he was going to do some man stuff in the guest bedroom, no girls allowed! Every so often another mysterious gift would appear under the tree. So I decided that there was also women's work to be done. And lo, it was!

There's a tiny bit more to do, but it will get done. Oh hell yes it will.
