It was a beautiful day and wonderful for a drive. MERRY CHRISTMAS TO EV- ERYONE AS YOU GATHER WITH FAMILY. It is a fun time. I am look- ing forward to watching the little ones open and enjoy their gifts. Paper tear- ing is so much fun. And then on to the next one and more ripping and tearing. Perhaps they will be lucky and get a big box containing a gift and the box will entertain them for a long. I think picking up big boxes at the grocery store and wrapping them would be a good idea. I am having Christmas Eve at my house and I should have started two months ago getting some baking and decorating done. Yes, a little early but seems I am not moving as fast as I did some time back. For some reason I get less and less done each day (seem to need a lot of break time). Have to admit age has caused a lot of the problems. Might as well face the in- evitable. The days, months all seem to add up to a year and soon another one on my age too. I can remember when my mom turned 40. I thought she was ancient Oh, to be 40 again!?! This weather is unbelievable. Tem- peratures in the 50's and almost the end of December. Quite a change from the winter of 2010-11 The time I spent at home and my Taurus in the garage did not seem so bad and I had a list of projects to keep my busy and also to keep my mind on something besides all of the snow outside. Yes, another time of confession. I did not get them all done. My only excuse if the list was too long. Does that sound plausible?? I am trying not to get too smug when it comes to the weather as it can change in a hurry and we know it will. I wish every one a wonderful time with family and friends and a safe trip to those making trips to distant s.  Bye now. By Martha MacLeod After driving from Oakes to Norman, Oklahoma, Canine Char- lie was greeted at my sister Judy's by a friendly 70 pound dog named Blondie and three curious cats. Charlie took one look at the cats and chased them down the hall- way into Aunt Judy's room. When Charlie came back to the front room Blondie began to leap in the air and make playful gestures to- wed him. Charlie was so afraid be didn't know how to respond. So, he barked. He barked his little head off until Aunt Judy came over and sat down on a chair with Blondie at her side and I sat on a chair with Charlie on my lap. We let the two canines get acquainted "eye to eye" and "nose to nose." This was the beginning of a new relationship. "Now they're cousins," said Aunt Judy. "They'll learn to get along." Meanwhile, Judy showed me her sewing projects, played the piano and brought the Christmas decora- I Sixteen attended the weekly Mon- day morning breakfast at Taylor Ray Cafe in Mesa, Ariz. on December 11.

It took several days before the pets were comfortable together. Charlie dashed up to the cats ex- pecting them to run and play a game of chase but Buddha and Angel stood their ground. Charlie put on the brakes. The third cat is a Maine Coon named Fidget. He is only a year and a half old and inex- perienced with little dogs. Charlie barked and kept trying to play with him but there was no game. The cats hissed at Charlie or batted him with their front paws until he left them alone. He was eager to make friends and tried again and again to get them to play like dogs. Charlie soon learned to share the living space with Judy's pets. The guest room was special. It had my suitcase and Charlie's food, toys and best of all, his soft little daybed from home. That seemed to make everything all right. Charlie needed a bath and a Ch :tin, ,CS" % D trim so I took him to PetsMart for grooming. To check him in I had to show his health and shot records from Oakes Vet. He was glad to see me when I went to pick him up from this new place. He was clean and shiny sporting a red white and green Christmas bandana around his neck. Once we got in the car Charlie sat in my lap. His fur was soft as silk and a sweet aroma filled the air. Then I realized the yummy scent came from Charlie. "You smell like a Christmas cookie!" I laughed as I recalled seeing a sign in the store that advertised a canine shampoo/conditioner named "Sea- son's Sensations." Charlie was not amused. Blondie was at the door to greet us when we returned to Judy's place. She took one whiff of Char- lie and followed him everywhere he went. The smell of fresh baked cookies was like an invitation to take a bite out of him. Even the cats swarmed around the sweet little Christmas Cookie with the newly trimmed moustache and the fluffy tail curled up on his rump. Char- lie jumped on the sofa and rubbed against the cushions. Then he went to the back yard, rolled in the grass and jumped in a pile of dry fallen leaves. "That's more like it," he said as he shook himself all over in the way that only dogs can do. Coming back into the house with a smile he announced, "I'm Top Dog and everybody knows it!
