Christmas Eve morning! This year is a special year for me. I wish you all a Merry Christmas, even and especially to my debating adversaries.(yes Cole you are not the only one) Laugh I wish you all a great Christmas, and Holiday week, with family and friends.

We will turn the corner into 2012, and I pray things start getting better. My Christmas wish for the country is for things to turn around in our economy, get people back to work, stop reversing our educational systems further, and start working togather in Congress to accomplish it.

This year gave me a little health scare, so this Christmas has special blessings for G2, and has me recovering a little from Surgury, I had 9 days ago. All is well, nothing serious, taking is a little slow right now. I have orders, no garage stuff for a few days, maybe she said weeks Laugh (that one is from Mrs G2, not the Doc) 😉 . I was blessed with good Doctors, who were all amazing. Happy to say, my surgeon yanked all the staples and released me, so I'm all fixed now. No lifting for a while.

So for me I alrady have my Christmas present, and its all I need. The joy of seeing Mrs G2, the kids, our grandchild, extended families, with a clean bill of health on Christmas.

Merry Christmas Everyone! 😀 😀 😀

My Christmas wish? I wish people would stop with the 'war on Christmas' propaganda. It's old, it's repetitive and it just wears them down. Maybe extend some of that peace on earth, goodwill towards men to everyone no matter what holiday they observe.

you know, i was actually considering opening a thread about the very subject. I am not kidding when I say we haven't even reached 1 inch yet. We've had a couple dustings but that about it. It was almost 50 degrees on Christmas! Its kind of strange, I never remember going this long without snow nor do I remember it being this warm at the end of December. I could walk outside right now without a jacket and be comfortable.

I love the winter and I am missing the snow dearly Cry

I can not remember a time when by Christmas our yard was not full of snow, and when it came, you had it until spring. Something Californians do not know about is when the ground freezes, something you never think about, and why they probably invented astroturf. Gets well into fall and freezing weather, playing tackle football is mighty tough. That top layer of grass and dirt freezes up solid and isn;t very forgiving to fall on. I imagine astroturf was a real welcome relief for any football players in the east.

As a kid, I remember waking up and looking out the window, and my sister and I would be praying for snow. We knew blizzards were coming, but the weather predictions of the 50's were not like today. So the first snow was usually a big surprize when we were kids. Capricorn, about 10 years ago a coworker was visting his brother in Tonwanda, and he was nice enough to get a disposable camera. Took pictures of my old home, the entire block, an even went over to Lindberg Elementry school. Dad built most or the additions on our house, and planted hedges around the front. Its still the only house on the block with hedges, and they are the ones Dad Planted in the early 50's believe it or not. I had the family album out comparing pictures with my time, and seeing what my dad had built on to that house, so long ago. My Dad was a engineer for Bell, and he did a balsa wood mock up model of the house, and what he was going to build. Every wall drafted on vellom an glued to the balsa wood frame. It doubled the house size, it was a very big project. Its very delecate, but I still have it stored in a box of what he designed and built, this scale model. I often wondered what the people in the house now would think if I wrote them the history of their house, and just mailed it to that address. What a mind blower to recieve in the mail.
