Merry Christmas!

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.

I know you’re all busy with the holidays, but be sure to enter our latest Free Drawing. This week’s prize is an audiobook of Dog’s Run, my mystery novel set in a small town in Ohio in 1951. Many people tell me it’s my best book ever, and I have to agree. To enter, all you have to do is click on this Free Drawing link or the tab at the top of this page and enter your name in the comments section at the bottom of that page (not this one). Only one entry per person per drawing please, and you must enter with your real name. To prevent spam or multiple entries, the names of cartoon or movie characters are not allowed. The winner will be drawn Sunday evening.


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.

  1. Add Carroll Carter to the drawing.

    Agree __Dog Run__ is my favorite Nick Russell’s book. But have never listened to any audio books. The drawing odds are a whole lot better than Vegas.

    Merry Christmas to all the Russells & family members.

  2. Sitting here with by myself with my coffee, having re-read your post from yesterday brings to mind what a lot of us realize. Time goes on and before you know it, life seems to have zoomed by. So much I would like to do, but having lost two loving husbands who liked to travel, as do I, I now sit in a sticks & bricks home with my memories. Not mechanically minded enough to trust myself on the road by myself, I enjoy your blogs to help with my “wanderlust”. My wish to everyone out there is to be true to yourself and do what you really want to do before life passes you by without you even knowing it. God bless you both, and wishing for good health and prosperity to you both.
