    Thank you, Grrl. It’s nice to have something nice from “Down Under” first thing in the morning!

    Hope you are well and enjoying all God’s blessings!

  3. For anyone here in Wichita who may be planning to drive around looking at Christmas lights, we did that the other night and here are three places I highly recommend:

    1) Candy Cane Lane
    14012 W. Remington Lane, Wichita, KS 67235 (near Maple and 135th)

    2) Lights on St. Paul by the ARC
    2919 West Second

    3) Animated TSO Concert & Holiday Lights
    1457 Coolidge St.

    I’m going back to ALL three and taking my Boston company — I was that impressed!

    I want to say

    Have a Merry Christmas, and may God BLess

  5. Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA) on the “radical homosexual agenda”: “It is to be protected against violent crimes driven by bigotry, it’s to be able to get married, it’s to be able to get a job, and it’s to be able to fight for our country. For those who are worried about the radical homosexual agenda, let me put them on notice. Two down, two to go.”

    Well all the kids were here tonight along with all the grandkids, house full and quite noisy but wonderful.
    I am afraid I am a bit mnemonically, such is the being a parent seeing their soldier son who will be deployed in the months to come.

    You try not to think about it, you look at them and try to only be in the moment they are here and setting just across the room. Dare not to let thought that of the worst fear to come to mind.
    Odds do not help in this, that the chances are they will return unharmed and there will be future Christmas to be shared.

    Thinking of the possibilities will only make this evening less cheerful and not what you would want for them if this is the last Christmas for them. You would want it to be the best Christmas ever one that is so deserved for them.

    He is fitter then the last time I had seen him, able to run for miles without an effort and strong as a Bull.
    You can feel his desire to be once again just a normal person and a part of the normal hum-drum living with friends and family.

    Wanting to see everyone in the time he has before going back to his base and to the day he will board that plane that will take him away from everyone he knows. Not wanting to think it maybe the last time he see them. He too knows the odds are with him so he puts any doubts out of his mind.

    Just enjoy the laughter and pleasant times for tomorrow is not here yet and living in the moment it is far away. Playing with his nephews and daughters, talking to his brother and sister.
    Hug his mom and talk of what it is like living in Germany and how odd the world is there to him.

    It became time for them to leave, still tired and suffering from jet lag they all are feeling like they had not slept since leaving Frankfurt yesterday after their flight had been cancelled the day before.
    They will be back Sunday for Christmas diner and seeing more family.

    • Hugs, tstb. I never find the words that I want to say to someone like you and your family. Sounds like happy, noisy, and wonderful times so stay in the moment…
