|Me getting ready to visit my friends Bill and Janet and their family - Christmas 2003|
Tis Christmas Eve already folks, and nary a mouse is scurrying around the house (I hope not!)
Last night was a little busier that usual at the hotel. Room heater not working, no WiFi signal, where to park . . . the usual. Kept interrupting my nap time (not serious hotel owner if you're reading this blog). SMILE.
At this time of year I remember years past when I was invited to my old school friend's house for Christmas dinner. Bill and his wife Janet put out the perfect "Father Knows Best" Christmas celebration.

I've included some photos of the last Christmas Day I spent at their house in 2003. Again, I am surprised at how fast time goes by. Remembering that Christmas, it only seems like three or four years ago. Eleven years! I can just imagine where I'll be eleven years form now; probably six feet under in my plot at the Northwood Cemetery in Downingtown, Pennsylvania. It's ready folks, just a matter of time before I make that Final Appointment. But for now let's remember fond memories of Christmases past.

Also, this time of year I think of my Mom. Today would have been her 91st birthday. Happy birthday Mom.
