"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime"-MARK TWAIN

Merry Christmas


We would like to wish each and every one of you a very wonderful Christmas season.

Wanda and I were blessed to have both our families here at home yesterday for our Christmas gathering.  From before the time we married, it has been a tradition. All the parents, brothers and sisters, kids and grandkids, along with nieces and nephews gather at the home of one of the elders.  Everyone brings something to eat, and there are gifts under the tree for all the little ones.  It was quite a day, though I'm having problems with this elder thing.

The forecast for tomorrow, Christmas Day, is bleak.  A severe cold front is to meet up with warm gulf moisture in our area tomorrow morning. Tornado watch’s and probably warnings are in the forecast.  We are planning a hopefully quiet day at home.

Once again, Merry Christmas; and remember “the reason for the Season!”


  1. Christmas blessings to you and yours!

  2. Jerry, your traditional family Christmas gathering sounds precious. About the elder thing... it does beat the alternative. :)

    Hope you have a safe Christmas Day warmed with rich memories of the season, and the blessedness of the occasion.

    Our forecast is 100% rain and thunderstorms. I would prefer snow!

  3. Peace be with you this Christmas and all year.

  4. Merry Christmas to you and your family and may God richly bless you in the year to come.

  5. Christmas blessing to you and Wanda!


Thanks for looking, and comments are welcome.
