We had our chapter Christmas party last night at the Millers, with lots of great food and socializing. I took some video, which as usual isn’t too good, but you can click on the title above to see it. Here are some pictures Debbie took and one from Paula too.

I have been toying with some of the blog styles available on Blogger, and found this, which is a modified version of one of the available styles. It seems that most of the styles are set up to have a fixed width, which I don’t care for. I want my blog to flow to the full width of the window. So I modified this one to do that. There are problems, like, I can’t use their background image to show the nice softer edges that you don’t see on the left and right of this blog, but that doesn’t bother me.
For the two days after Thanksgiving, we went shopping for a new couch. We went to four different furniture stores, and ended up purchasing a nice leather couch (pictured) at English Furniture. They custom cover furniture with whatever color of leather you want. We picked the same color as the showroom floor. It hasn’t been delivered yet, but it is supposed to arrive next monday. It has two recliners, one at each end, and it should be long enough for three people to sit comfortably.
I am sure this is much more than you wanted to know about couches.
A group of six our New Life Riders (CMA) chapter members went to the Austin Toy Run Sunday December 4th, we left Beverlys at 12:00 noon. The Toy run was to benefit the Helping Hand Home for Children. We each brought an unwrapped toy. There was a BBQ afterwords at Beverlys and music. The ride went to the childrens home on 38th 1/2 st.
Everyone is heading out to the children’s home carrying toys for the kids to the downtown location. We were part of a very large group, and the ride was very exciting. Of course the kids were happy to see us as well. CLICK the title to watch the video, or click HERE.
