2. Music with the Family: Val’s fiddle, “Helpless and Hungry” behind “What Child is This?”, Isaiah’s clear voice singing “No Wind at the Window,” and “The Lord Bless You and Keep You”
3. Maklubbi. However it is spelled, it was a delicious Christmas dinner. And wonderful wine. And the figgy pudding. Always the figgy pudding.
4. Dutch Blitz. I am getting so slow. I need to practice, if I am to keep up with these young people.
5. You. You. You.

Oh, and rocks. #6 is Rocks. Susquehanna’s rocks. Hezza’s rocks. Goldfinch’s rocks. The Apache Tear that I wear at my heart.
