Just dropped by a moment to say hi and wish all of you my friends a wonderful Christmas season. I have been checking in a few times but this time of year we just get slammed at work and I am so overwhelmed and tired at the end of the day I barely eat. (no exaggeration) On top of the continual crisis I have to be involved in- one of my staff’s son got killed in Iraq so it has been a real poopy couple of months.

I am looking forward to spending a few days with family and enjoy the sledding and the food. There will be lots of camaraderie among the guys and I’m sure we will have bragging contests etc. Snowball fights are a must. Two of my guys are trying to decide on boots for next season so we are all hearing the saga of new boots. Good grief just call someone and say DITTO from last year.

So everyone be safe and say prayers for all those away from loved ones this year. Those that have family members that will never come home, my best wishes and prayers. The first Christmas, birthday, anniversary or any significant date after a death is always the worst. Personally I think I slept thru all the “first” events the year after our son died.

Hope we will all be ready to gather here next summer and continue with our support and care for each other. Happy Holidays to abs and abbey’s !!!


Merry Christmas to you too, Sammi. Happy holidays to all.
