A Christmas gathering

As I sit here on the tug
miles away from my family for the second
Christmas in a row
I found myself reflecting on this Holiday season
that is slowly disappearing
in the rear view mirror.

As 2011 speeds toward us
at breakneck speed
I thought about a family gathering we had,
an early Christmas celebration of sorts
before I left for the boat.

Gathered were my siblings and their children
and their children.
The true meaning of Christmas
was alive in the room

BECAUSE MY SISTER GAVE ME THIS







This is a gift that just keeps on giving.

Each month has a Sarah Palin quote
that never fails to bring a smile to my face.

Her quote for January is special.

While on the campaign trail she was asked
"What newspapers do you read?"

I understand that question was a bit difficult and maybe
a little unfair.
Talk about throwing a hard ball!

Her answer:
"All of 'em, any of them that have been
in front of me over all these years."

I love Christmas.

Sarah is getting richer and wiser... which is very scary. I hear she has a publicist now who filters what she says before it gets to newspapers. A massive attempt is being made to make her seem thoughtful and wise... They say she is getting ready to be president... scary, indeed.

Mark, I like your sister's approach. Let's keep the real Sarah out in the open as much as possible.

LOL... ask me how much I cannot stand that this woman has come so far so fast. And she's debating whether she will run for President. *sigh* WE have given her the platform!

..this..flabbergasts me.

LOVE the column. And I still watch youtube videos of Tina Fey in her glorious rendition of SP.

"I can see Russia from my house" -

*sigh*
