Christmas 1992:

Okay Santa.
I don't want puppies.
I don't want another brother.
I don't want clothes.
I don't want fruit cake.

Christmas 1993:


We got Tinkerbell for Christmas. The farm kids wanted to ride her. She was acting spooky, I insisted on getting on her first. She reared up and flipped over on me.

 She dislocated my pelvis and fractured my sacrum. $15,000 worth of surgery/hospital stay and one metal plate and 4 big ass screws and I am good to go. That was an interesting Christmas. Ambulance ride and emergency surgery.

 The other bills were pretty scary at the time.
 On my CNA salary.
 in a complete fluke I actually had insurance that year because HIHO paid for it. In my 15 years of employment that year, 1993. Was the ONLY year I had health insurance.
 In the end, staring at  $15,000 +  worth of bills, all I had to pay was the $500 deductible. Which the house insurance paid. All it cost me was....nothing.

Christmas 1994:

Santa, I've given it a lot of thought, and this year I would like a gold fish.
