Christmas 2003

Ron, you need new glasses! Me with my friends Renee, Christine and Vickey - 2003 Victory Brewing Company, Downingtown, PA

Each year it seems as if Christmas arrives sooner. This year is no exception.  In just a few days I'll be  celebrating my 76th Christmas. 

At this time I remember previous Christmases.  I have forgotten much but I remember much.

The photo at the beginning of this post was taken in 2003.  I worked at First Financial Bank in Downingtown, Pennsylvania. 

I've been very fortunate in my work history. I've worked with many fine people. 

This Christmas I remember Renee, Christine and Vickey, the women pictured in the photo. This photo was taken at a Christmas dinner at the Victory Brewing Company in Downingtown. 

I'm still in touch, via Facebook, with Renee and Vickey. I wish them all a very Merry Christmas!

And I wish you, my blog followers both old and newcomers, a Merry Christmas. 

Making friends, peace and love; that is what life is about.  

Me and Dee at the hotel where I work now - 2009

Merry Christmas Ron and Bill from a new reader. I enjoy your blog and thanks for the interesting reads. It's a snow day here and sure looks like Christmas. All the best.

As one of your 'older' ('oldest?) blog-readers, Ron, I'm more than happy once more to take a few secs to wish you and hubby a VERY happy Xmas - and a most wonderful 2018.

Ron said...

Thank you Marie! Same to you! I was just talking to your fellow Canadian (Pat of Hamilton, Ontario) this morning on FaceTime. I love Canada! Taxes are a little to high but other than that, I LOVE CANADA!

Ron said...

Merry Christmas to you too Jane. My apologies for the crude words in m blog yesterday but I just had to get out my feelings.

Ron said...

A very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you too Ray! I hope you have many more GOOD movies to review.

Geo. said...

All my best wishes, Ron. Merry Christmas!

Ron said...

Same to you Geo. Much happiness to you this Christmas!

Ron, I am the last person you need to apologize to for your comments on Trump. I share your views on him. All the best!

Ron said...

I do have to apologize for some of the vulgar language I used in my post. I'll blame that on Trump, he brings out the worst in everyone. And I can't tell you how much I despise people like VP Pence who toady and suck up to him. Pence gives Christianity a bad name. I just hope it's not to late to repair the damage Trump and his enablers are doing to our democracy and this country. The irony is that Trump ran on a campaign of "Make America great again." He's making America worse. Our exceptionalism that we used to stand out of all the countries in the world, is slowly disappearing in the muck of Trumpism.
