Timothy Cornish hates every holiday season. Christmas was the worst for him. As an infant, left on the steps of a church by a family that didn't want him, he lived life going from one group home to another. He grew up not being able to separate his rough childhood from his adult life and it made him a Grinch for every season. Holly Day is vivacious and a breath of fresh air, even though she suffered through a rough life of group homes and foster care, but she happily survived. She never let it keep her from a happy life. When Bah Humbug Timothy meets Holly Day, sparks begin to fly and it has nothing to do with the fireworks celebrating the holiday. It's about what's beginning to sizzle between the two of them as she helps Timothy find that his past can be beneficial to the present and she's just the woman to help him see that.
This book contains a collection of incidents involving shopping with Ding-A-Ling, my mother-in-law. It is not meant to ridicule her, but simply is a recounting of her ways of twisting words and thoughts. She was born with an obvious learning disability. It is difficult for her to find appropriate words and to pronounce them correctly. As a person who was blessed at birth with the ability to manipulate words, I think the good Lord put me with Ding-A-Ling on purpose. My job has been to straighten out the grammatical mistakes she has made; she, however, has viewed this in a different light. I am sure she has always felt that I have been making fun of her. Nothing could be further from the truth; I have only wanted to keep others from ridiculing her. Many people think Ding-A-Ling's mistakes are due to senility. At her age, this could be partially true. I have concluded, however, that deep inside her brain is more intelligence than people give her credit for. Her ability to analyze numbers is phenomenal. It is simply a case of an area of her brain not operating correctly when the manipulation of words is required.
