Merry Christmas everybody. Whether you’re visiting family, in an RV park surrounded by friends, or spending a quiet day at home, I hope you have a wonderful day. I know we will.
We actually had our family gathering yesterday at Terry’s parents’ house. Besides her mom and dad, her sister Lisa and her husband Jim were there, along with her other sister Dani, and Dani’s daughter Andrea. I’m telling you, there were so many beautiful women there that I thought I’d died and gone to heaven.
And to make it even better, there was food, too! And not just food, but wonderfully delicious food! Check out this prime rib roast that Terry made. Over 15 pounds of the most tender, melt in your mouth meat I’ve ever had. Add to that, twice baked potatoes, fresh steamed green beans, Yorkshire pudding, two vegetarian salads, and a couple of desserts, and I can promise you, nobody left the table hungry!
After dinner we spent a few hours visiting and enjoying being together, something that isn’t always easy to arrange with everybody’s work schedules, and us being on the road most of the time.
Terry and I plan to have a quiet morning at home today, and then sometime this afternoon we’ll follow one of our own traditions and have dinner at a Chinese restaurant.
Now, turn off the darned computer and go tell somebody you love them. That’s the best Christmas gift you can ever give them.

Thought For The Day – I have now reached the stage in life where I can forget what I’m doing while I’m actually doing it.
