Mondays with Melitas – December 26, 2011

 

EVERY CHRISTMAS FOR ABOUT 85 YEARS.
 
     Whaddya know!!!  I gotta tell you don’t EVER stop wishing for something you really want — your wish may just come true.  Take a gander at my Christmas present that Santa brought me this year. The trouble is I don’t have much of a throwing arm, and it’s later than I think with the legs, but what a thrill — finally.
 
Now then, I am going out here in the neighborhood and mosie around to find a few kids to join me in a game with my brand new football.  I will tell them we will have to play “touch” because there is no “tackle” left for me.
 
Too much Christmas for more.                          MELITAS FORSTER

  2. Finally, a “pigskin”. Now all you need is a little GREEN and GOLD cuz the GREEN BAY PACKERS really need a good running back.
    HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU AND THE WARDEN.
    Love ya,

  3. YEA !

  4. You’ve made “quite a catch” there Melitas! Don’t “fumble” it away! I certainly get a “kick” out of reading your stories as they always “score” big with me. As usual, I’m “bowl-ed” over!

    Be sure to cheer for the SAINTS tonight on “Monday with Melitas” Night Football.

  5. Belated ‘merry Christmas’ to my goooooood friend. We have had many good times together thru the years of golf. Happy New Year to you. Had Mom (95) over for dinner on Xmas Day and she is still kicking, but not as high as you. Love Darlene Montgomery

  6. Dear Mena,

    You look wonderful; and so happy. I hope you had a great Christmas.

    Love,
    Maxine
