Christmas 2015 Greetings, AAPK Members!
Gosh, where does time go? Sometimes, it seems stuck and others, it just flies at warp speed. I think the warp speed is what it did (for me at least) for most of this year.
Hope all of you are well and healthy and happy and enjoying playing with your favorite knives. You probably noticed that Dale didn’t do a fall knife auction this year. We are thinking sometime after the first of the year. Hope that’s ok and you weren’t disappointed that the fall annual auction didn’t materialize. Not sure just how many auctions there are left – this year may be the last, but then, there could be one more after that. Don’t mean to leave ya’ll hanging, but as you know, it’s hard to let them go, but it is joyous, at the same time, because I know how much each of you enjoy having them. And, I thank you again for you past purchases. It has helped me financially, as well as emotionally. I know each knife is going to a good, loving home of people who knew Johnnie or know of him. That means a lot.
I’m doing well. Changed jobs this year, now doing work that I’ve done for many years - purchasing & inventory. Thought about moving to the Texas Coast earlier in the year. One of my nephews lives there and was seriously looking into purchasing an established plant nursery from the original owners who had decided to retire. He wanted me to help him run it since I know about purchasing, inventory, and plants. Unfortunately, things didn’t work out, but he’s hopeful that in the future he can own a plant nursery, rather than run a golf course.
Still working on my cooking skills. Johnnie did all the cooking and he tried to teach me, but I’ve never been interested in being in the kitchen – I’d rather be outside working in the yard. So, I’ve had to learn by the seat of my pants in order to feed myself and to eat healthy. I mostly cook soups, and am up to 3 different kinds. They are really good, tho
That’s all of my news, except to wish each of you a most Wonderful, Joyous Christmas with your Family & Friends and that 2016 will find you Healthy, Happy, and exploring Life.
Love to all –
