Oma Visits

Greetings friends and fans. This is The Daily Bone and I'm your cheerful doggie reporter 
Chester L. W. Spaniel. 

On Christmas Eve ghostwriter drove down the NYS Thruway from Henrietta to Tonawanda to pick up our Oma from the nursing home. 

She was very worried that it would start to snow again. But the Thruway was in good shape. It was actually quite picturesque with snow on the trees.

It was very nice to see Oma on Christmas. We had a good conversation. I followed her all around and made sure I was underfoot at all times.

We asked her what she wanted for Christmas Eve dinner. How about roast beef? No. Turkey or maybe fish? Nope. How about ham and scalloped potatoes? No. Kentucky Fried chicken? Nein! She wanted pork roast with sauerkraut. We fancied it up by adding some onions, apples, cloves, and brown sugar, and let it cook all day in the crock pot. It was fall-apart tender and very yummy indeed!

German cookies and stollen.

On Christmas Day, ghostwriter, Dad, and Oma went to visit Ryan and his family.

Here she is with a few of her favorite guys.

Uncle John picked up Oma from there and drove her back to the nursing home.
What did I do later that day?



  1. Looks like a pawsome visit with Oma. Being underfoot is helpful.

  2. We had pork roast too and your cookies look sooo yummy! What a wonderful Christmas for Oma and all of you!

  3. We're glad the weather cooperated for Oma's visit. It looks like you all had a great time.

  4. Oma is a lovely lady!! Paws up for sauerkraut. We love it!

  5. I think it is so awesome that ghostwriter did that for Oma. One act of kindness means so much to people who live in nursing homes. Bless you and your family

  6. Good to see Oma is doing great. And your meal sounds absolutely delicious. I wouldn't mind the recipe for that I can tell you!!

  7. Sauerkraut on a cold day sounds perfect to us. Lee always puts an apple in when cooking they say it helps with the acidity level and stops the bloat afterwards. The stolen bread looks delicious why toast a little and have for breakfast that is what we do. Happy faces all around the perfect Christmas. I noticed your ceramic Christmas tree and village up high. Is that a Lefton Village?
    Happy New Year Chester L. W.
