Another Christmas come and gone!...a hundred much appreciated cards, one tree, a gallon of eggnog (a lot left), a standing rib roast, one lasagna, and rounds of golf for Durelle and Cindy on the 20th and 26th. Everything was outstanding except the roast. I guess I haven't yet mastered that new grill.
Baxter got the new green snake that he asked for in the family Christmas letter.
All in all, it was a very quiet Christmas. Cindy had to work Christmas Eve, but they had an early deadline so she got home in time for the three of us to enjoy the remainder of the evening. And she joined us Christmas morning at a civilized hour to open presents.
Just before Christmas we received a picture of granddaughter, Melissa, taken in Australia moments before her marriage in a civil ceremony. The church services will be in Vegas in June. The early civil ceremony there was driven by visa issues as they will be returning to Australia after the June wedding until they have a sufficient nest egg to move back to this side of the world. At least that's the plan.
Here's hoping that you had a great Christmas, too.
