It’s Christmas week, the most wonderful time of the year.
Thank you for your readership this past year!
Best wishes for a Merry Christmas and a safe and happy holiday season.
May the miracle of this wonderful season fill your heart with peace and happiness and bless your life throughout the year.
Merry Christmas are words of hope and joy.
We sometimes lose the focus of this holiday season. Shopping, wrapping presents, and sending Christmas cards. Planning dinner, cleaning, and decorating often distracts from the reason for the Season.
As we approach Christmas Eve we’re back in the Great State of Texas enjoying the Southern sunshine and warmth, discovering the beauty and diversity of the area, and indulging the palate in tasty Texas BBQ, fruit and cream kolaches, and pralines—and pecan pie with Blue Bell icecream.
As usual my regular postings will continue daily throughout Christmas week and into the New Year.
May you all have a heartfelt and happy Christmas.
May Peace be your gift at Christmas and your blessing all year through!
Forget sugar plums!
When you drift off to sleep tonight,
I’ll be dreaming of fabulous RV destinations I’d love to visit,
Acadia, Mount Rainier, Yosemite, and Yellowstone national parks
Sweet dreams and happy holidays!
Cranky as an RV space heater,
I groan and grumble in pre-dawn chill,
Wait for the coffee pot to finish playing
Reveille to my numb mind.
Shuffling around the RV Park,
Snowbirds and Winter Texans make mischief,
Cackling like contented
Chickens under the hot Texas sun.
A grateful respite from grueling
Gray cold fronts of International Falls,
Winnipeg, and Green Bay.
Amid chants of Go Packers Go!
A time of celebration and decorations
Christmas lights, ornaments, nativity scenes,
Wal-Mart Santas and reindeer
A plastic Jesus or two adorn motorhomes,
Fifth wheel trailers and old converted buses.
Christmas Eve, wrinkled faces gather
In the clubhouse by the artificial tree
Reminiscing of Christmases past during simpler times
Speaking of children in childish voices.
Merry Christmas and Seasons Greetings to all!
May the joy of today, bring forth happiness for tomorrow—and may the cold Alberta air stay up north!
