"Cast of thousands"
« on: December 22, 2012, 07:10:20 AM »
Well, looks like today will consist of getting ready for the family get together dinner, that we're having on Christmas eve day. Everyone's all here at the same time.....a great day, for sure. It'll be total chaos, as usual, but a nice chaos..as the g'kids run through the house and great grandma and grandpa laugh, our son's argue sports, and we just watch it all with pleasure and interest. What a great time it is......Food is eaten, presents exchanged, jokes told, hugs abound, and love is shared.....my kind of day.

That's what Christmas is all about.
When you find people who not only tolerate your quirks but celebrate them with glad cries of "Me too!" be sure to cherish them. Because those weirdos are your tribe.  (Sweatpants & Coffee)

I knew that it would be great for you Mug.  Enjoy Christmas with your bride in a more relaxed way.  Merry Christmas.
Always move forward. Never look back.

Blows my mind, too!  Were you the patirarch or was a realy old person there?  I don't think that your old enough to have 3 generations behind you unless y'all are like guppies;)
