I've Been Tagged

My soon-to-be-former best friend (just kidding!) Mike tagged me with a Christmas meme, three things I want for Christmas, and three things I don't want. So, here goes...

I want...

Snow on Christmas. Not so much for myself, but for Karen and all the folks up here who love a white Christmas (even including the ski folks).

America to wake up to the fact that Arabs are pretty neat people, that they all are not terrorists, and they hate the violence of terrorism as much as we do.

And finally, something for me...I'd like to have Christmas, and the weekend before it, to be headache free.

What I don't want...

A box of Fruit Loops from my mother-in-law. (It's an inside joke.)

Any auto accidents this holiday season.

Heartburn from eating too many Christmas goodies.

Now, to pass the meme along, I know she's done some already, but she seems to like them, so I tag Keri at Still Running for a Reason.

Ah Ha! Competence!

I wonder if our president has seen this? It's at a level even he can understand.
