Earlier I had a picture on this blog of our new brick sidewalk in the front of our house. It was designed to perfectly support a little bench. By coincidence Mary and the Brain had received a beautiful little bench as a wedding present and I had expressed a desire to have one too. Mary and Gretel and their spouses arranged to have one made for us. A Christmas Eve Santa delivered it. I thought it was curious that the Brain kept saying that they had such good traction with their Cadillac. With this in the trunk that car wasn't going to slide anywhere. It is really perfect for the spot. My brother came over and said it looked like a cemetery stone but who pays attention to brothers anyway.
