Merry Christmas



I’m sitting here on Christmas Eve, watching television images of tornado damage on two small towns just east of where we live.  Four people, all probably looking forward to fun times with family and friends in the coming days, are dead.  Millions of dollars in damages to property.   Makes it easy to forget that it’s Christmas time.  Thankfully, we, along with everyone we know, are fine.

That being said, Wanda and I would like to wish each and every one of you a very Merry Christmas.  May you holidays be filled with joy and fellowship with family and friends.  May 2015 bring you happiness that is beyond measure. 

And, please stop and remember the real  “Reason for the Season”.


  1. Wishing you a very Merry Christmas as well. Enjoy!

  2. Thanks for the reminder not to take anything for granted.

    Merry Christmas to you all!

  3. Glad to hear you Guys and Family where not impacted by the Front that moved through...Wishing you all a VERY Merry Christmas, and maybe next year, just maybe, we will meet up.. :) Horst sends

  4. I trust you have a wonderful Christmas. Hope it works out for you to come this direction in the new year.

  5. Merry Christmas, Happy New Year!

    Safe travels and looking forward to sharing some western sunshine with you and Wanda.

  6. The devastation and FOUR killed...so glad you two are ok. It was fierce!! Merry Christmas and may those who lost it all find support from the community!!

  7. Jerry, I am so saddened by the tornado damage, but so glad you and Wanda are safe.

    It's a little late, but your "reason for the season" warmed my heart.

    Wishing the best of everything for you and yours in 2015.

  8. Merry Christmas Jerry and Wanda! I hope you had enjoyed your Christmas vacation with full of happiness. I am also planning my birthday party and searching affordable party venues Houston TX for almost 100 guests. Can you please help me in my birthday party planning?


Thanks for looking, and comments are welcome.
