This inspires a song:

If I live to be 100,
I shall never know from where,
Came the Special K with berries,
Scarlet berries sitting there.

Saralynn in Florida?  This is going to be better than PBS’s The Durrell’s in Corfu.

My favorite part of the Christmas Miracle Story is how SL is tempted to embellish it when she retells it.  Could this be why so many Christians have a fish symbol on their bumper? 

As the month’s pass and a few similar incidents come to pass, a ‘gremlin’ is going to start whispering to Saralynn, “You just forgot that you bought the box of Special K before going to the church.”  It’s related to turning down the thermostat before going to bed and then, just as you get comfortable . . .

Sometimes, of course, God has turned the thermostat back up so it’s a good thing you got up to check.

Slynn, it’s good to hear from you. FWIW, I accept your version of the event.

I experienced a Christmas miracle once.  I was home from college, and my parents lived in a condo in a busy part of Los Angeles.  My mom was always wary of dangers of the big city.  One evening, when I announced offhand that I was going out for a walk, my mom urged me that it might not be safe.  I didn’t share her fear, and set out.  Almost immediately I saw a large, strong dog coming toward me.  It was very unusual to see a dog on the loose in this urban area.  I said hello, and the dog joined me for my entire walk.  I felt completely protected with the attentive dog at my side.  I often felt lonely when back in my childhood home because I missed my college life, which was 300 miles away.  The dog made me feel befriended.  When I reached our condo complex at the end of my ramble, the dog split off, and I never saw it again.  The animal was a form of my guardian angel, I suspected.

...or maybe the walk took place in the summer…

I don’t think SL could die. Like how Bethoven didn’t die, he turned into music. Saralynn will just turn into tasteful erotica.

Still, Florida? I don’t know what you were thinking moving down there with all those fuddy duddies.

Say the word and I’ll come save you.

P.S.  This was meant as a compliment to SL’s writing and sense of humor.

I’m probably one of the few on this board who remembers that song. Harry Belafonte, I think.
