This meme is easy and it's fun! Thanks, Susan for hosting.

And here's the picture for the day!

Through the woods to Grandma's house! Yeah, and no computer, no
Worlds of Warcraft games! What kind of fun Christmas is that?
Old Fashioned!

Good one Sylvia, I can see the kids being concerned, probably never been away from a computer for more than 10 minutes at a time. Lets hope Grandma can teach them a thing or two. You have a wonderful Christmas Sylvia

Linda Reeder said...

Ah, yes, a good old fashioned Christmas! Hope you have a great one too.

Peggy said...

Merry Christmas my friend!

Chuckling here! Love it! And I bet Grandma can sort out that attitude in no time too! Grandma's have devious ways!

Susan at Stony River said...

Poor kids! No wonder they're looking so glum... I bet Grandma has tons of silver to polish too, and buckets of popcorn to string for the tree!

(Funny how looking back, some of my favorite Christmas memories were really CHORES in disguise! *gasp*)

I hope you're having a lovely holiday Sylvia!

Wait till they find some fruit in their stocking instead of an i-Phone app.
Have a great Christmas Sylvia.

hope said...

Ah yes, a standing ovation for old fashion games!

Have a wonderful week.

Pat said...

Oh, so true! I remember the good ol' days when we played Monopoly and Clue, the physical, cardboard and plastic board games, with other real life in-the-flesh people like siblings and cousins.

Have a lovely Christmas with your family, Susan!

I long for an old fashioned Christmas!

Lew said...

When the grandsons come to this house, the Play Station, games, iPods, etc come along! But they still play Uno, Monoply, Rummikub, etc with us. Some things from their not too distant childhood are still fun for them.

Ashling said...

Reminds me of the Christmas about 7 years ago when there was a blizzard, and everyone stayed close to home, unconnected by cellphones and computers...you're right--so much fun!

articlesoffaithandfancy said...

Love it, Sylvia! When I saw the illustration I thought of the song my son learned to play on the piano when he was about 8--Over the river and through the woods, to Grandmother's house we go....
Have a great holiday season. Cheers!

An old fashioned Christmas is the best kind.

5thsister said...

The very best Christmases are most definitely those that are old fashioned and simple.

What Can I Say?

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
