Last Christmas when my daughter asked me what I wanted for Christmas, my response was a gift card to Central Market so that I could buy flowers without feeling guilty. They frequently have specials on certain flowers, so I thought fresh flowers a few times a year would be a nice treat. The vase is also kind of unusual in that it’s a thin rectangle, about 1 inch wide and 6 inches long. The photo on the wall is one that I took many years ago as part of a photography class. We went to a coliseum on the north side of Fort Worth where the “wrasslin’” was held weekly. I have a whole series of pictures from that night, but this one is the only one made into a poster-size image. It usually affects people in one of two ways: laughter or “ooh, gross.” I fall into the laughter category. It makes me smile.
