I got an unexpected but very happy to get phone call this morning. Thom called. We acted like nothing ever happened..which is what we do in our family.We the De Nile Family..We had a long chat about the girls, mojo, the cowboys, etc. Then he said they were having Christmas at 12:30 and did I want to come and see what all the girls got for Christmas..said of course…we said our goodbye’s and we both said I love you. I hung up and burst into tears..yup old hard case weeps..usually at sappy movies but the kids can make me cry all the time..it’s what they are good for.So off I went to Bellmead, which is about 15 miles from West.(damn Brett Farve just threw an interception in the endzone, fuck) and faced the music. It was like nothing happened. Of course..I got to see all the gifts the girls got. Judas priest they made out like bank robbers. Watches, credit cards, clothes, buddahs, money,every lotion and skin care product known to woman kind and pedicure stuff. Unbelieveable..I got a gift card which was a nice surprise and will put to good use..Thom showed me all the pictures he took of the San Francisco trip and the ski trip to Colorado..Especially liked the ones taken at Candlestink Park in San Francisco during the cowboys, niners game…That was really cool..We had a great dinner, Candy, Thom’s wife always makes a great meal..she even made homemade whipped cream for the pies which was really excellent.Then Scott(Thom’s stepson, who is 15) and I and Candy played Texas holdem.The girls left to go to their other grandparents and Candy’s sister came with all the kids, so I knew Candy likes to ‘be alone’ with her family so I kissed everyone and waddled back to West. Was a perfect Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.Plus the Cowboys won…Jackiesue is a happy camper.So, it looks like I will not be attaching anymore tacky nicknames on to my daughterinlaw, since Thom was so angered by it and caused such a mess.I will reserve my nastiness for forest gump, the christian right and the rest of the schmuck republicans and all who voted for them. There is enough to go around..
YES JACKIESUE..THERE IS A SANTA CLAUS
