Merry Christmas to All!

I’m dreaming of a green Christmas, just like the ones I use to know. We are headed over the river and through the woods for a gathering of DG’s family. Nothing says Christmas quiet like palm trees and mistletoe (a parasite that grows in live oak trees in semi-tropical climates.) DG’s started spending Christmas in Florida as a teenager 35 years ago (my, but he is getting old.) Nothing quite gets him in the holiday spirit like sand between the toes on his bare feet. This will be the first time in about 25 years that all of DGs siblings will be together with mom and dad at the same time. Pass the Prozac and Jack Daniels, we’ll be back to report to all you’all before New Years.

    My heart has been yearning for Florida for the last 2 months. I'm seriously sad after having read this.

    Poke some sand with your big toe for me please.....

    Since you have the Prozac and the JD, can I send you my mother-in-law. I'll even throw in a first round draft pick as well if you take here.

    Merry Christmas and a VERY happy New Year.

    Sorry, it's my thing this year. The Mrs. and I are going to Bora Bora for 12 days in March and I have polynesian on my mind.

    Bora Bora... cool! It's certainly one of my favorite place names. I've always wondered what it's really like. Give ample, illustated descriptions when you get back.

    PS: While in Fla, I found a new town name that became an immediate favorite: Okahumpka. I have every confidence that Bora Bora is a much nicer place to go.
