Thought it was time to fire up this little blog once again,
and bring you up to date
with whats been happening.
This photo below is the last one I took
as we were anchored near Nederland Texas
before I was taken off the boat because of a back issue.
Yes, I have joined THAT club.
The club where people start each and every conversation with,
"How's your back?"
I hate that club.
One day I will blog about the days that followed
my removal from the boat
and the idiot doctors I dealt with while hobbling around the streets of Texas,
before I got home.
In hindsight, it's kinda humorous
but I'll save that for later.
The good news is
I made it home one day before Thanksgiving.
The bad news is...
I couldn't sit down.
So, I was given the duty of dishwasher.
The home made apple pie that accompanies every holiday.
My girls came in from Pheonix, DC and Wilmington.
Yeah, that was a good day.
Below is the first shot I ever took with my new tripod.
Nice to have the whole gang in one shot.
As Thanksgiving came and went
the temperatures dropped
and I spent a lot of time watching my little friends out the back door.
Then the snows came.
8 inches of that fluffy white stuff
accumulated on my lawn in a matter of hours one day.
My wife shoveled the driveway.
Did you hear, I have a bad back?
As the aromas of Thanksgiving dinner faded from my memory
it was time to head out and cut down our Christmas tree.
Yep, you guessed it,
my wife cut the tree.
Did you hear,
I have a bad back?
I feel a bit awkward even mentioning my back problems,
they are minuscule compared to the serious troubles some of our friends on here have.
I only mention it to explain my recent absence.
I have a warm house to sit in over Christmas.
My family will once again huddle up around our fire place.
I'm not looking for street vent to sleep on at night.
I'm doing quite well.
Here's wishing that all my blogger friends have a great holiday,
and hoping my friends who are fighting real battles
find some comfort during this time.
I will be thinking of you.
