     i’ve been goood all year – or at least most of it.  and those times i slipped i was really trying.  so please remember xx me on christmas.  

this is what i would like to have:

have a good flight!

                                                                        cathy sue”

The list has changed a little – instead of a Palm Pilot Life Manager, I’m dreaming of a Palm-like cell phone.  But family is still at the top of the lists, as I suspect it is for many of us.  May your holidays bring you all you’ve hoped for, even if you didn’t realize that’s what you wanted in the first place!
