We had a bit of snow last night, or actually it was sleet. Not much by some standards.....

January 14, sleet on the ground.

This may not look like much to those of you who like winter, but it was plenty for me!

The weather has kept me inside so I did get get a new page put up. If you are interested in reading it, the page is about power line protection devices and is called "Shore Power, your best friend or craftiest enemy?"

White Christmas








Don't blame me! I never once dreamed of a White Christmas!

The scene...

I have a list of folks I know,
all written in a book.
And every year when Christmas comes,
I go and take a look
And that is when I realize
that these names are a part
Not of the book they're written in,
but of my very heart.

For each name stands for someone
who has crossed my path sometime,
And in that meeting they've become
the rhythm in each rhyme,
And while it sounds fantastic,
for me to make this claim,
I really feel that I'm composed
of each remembered name,

And while you may not be aware
of any special link,
Just meeting you has changed my life
a lot more than you think.
For once I've met somebody,
the years cannot erase
the memory of a pleasant word
or of a friendly face!

So never think my Christmas cards
are just a mere routine,
of names upon a Christmas list
forgotten in between.
For when I send a Christmas card
that is addressed to you,
it's because you are on a list
of folks I'm indebted to.

For I am but the total
of many folks I've met,
and you are one of those
I prefer not to forget.
And whether I have known you
for many years or few,
i n some way you have had a part
in shaping things I do.

And every year when Christmas comes
I realize anew,
The best gift life can offer
is meeting folks like you!
And may the spirit of Christmas
that for all time endures
leave it's richest blessing
in the hearts of you and yours!
What young, good looking folks we were!
One a sunny day in Redlands, CA, on Dec. 22, 1962 our new life began. The day was 72º at 2pm in the University Methodist Church. Hard to believe that it waas that long ago............

As an anniversary gift I got Pam a new air compressor! She was so thrilled that she responded by getting me a gift also. It was a brand new vacuum cleaner! 

Well, it has now been a year since we were last out doing the RV thing but at long last we got it done! Our new RV is no longer a virgin but has been slept in. We towed it to our friends in Granbury, TX for a few days visit and while the medical world has kept us pretty much off of the road, the ice has been broken once more! Were we excited, you betcha!

Here we are staying in our new RV, at last!

We did kind of ease into this with our trailer under the shelter of our friends the Davis's just behind their fifth wheel. With this one having spent all summer inside of our RV shelter we thought that we perhaps should not shock it by  going at this too rapidly! Over all the trip went well and we are satisfied with our combination. We got about 12mpg, which is a 50% improvement from the motorhome, although not quite as good as we might have hoped. We are no anxious for spring to arrive so that we can be off with it once more!

Merry Christmas, everyone! Wink
