Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas to all, to all our friends and followers, and those who just googled us for the first time.  I hope you got to spend some quality time with family.

Pam and I rented a car and drove home to upstate New York for the holidays.   While sitting at Christmas dinner, I had a sudden, strong pang of sadness just as we finished.  It's when my dad always called to wish everyone a Merry Christmas.  He passed away in 2010, but I still miss him.

If you still have your mom and/or dad, be sure to call today.  If you don't, you probably had the same sense of sadness I did, and my condolences to you.


  1. Merry Christmas Dave. My condolences on your father's passing. The good news is, that while the sadness will always remain, the pain will eventually be replaced by memories less painful.

    Safe journeys to you.

  2. Merry Christmas to you and Pam and the doggies!

  3. You honor him with your memories.
