This will likely be my last appearance on the hub for several days as I am heading up north to Bellingham, Washington tomorrow afternoon to be with my wife's family. It will be my first Christmas with her (we actually only met last New Years eve) and also with her family so that it very exciting for me. I really like my wife. And my in laws.

Like most folks, the holidays are a busy time of year for me. In addition to the regular parties and family get togethers, my dad's birthday is on Christmas Eve. This year, he's turning 60, which seems mind boggling. My brother also turns 25 on the 29th.

I am going to miss my friends in the land of Hubs but I look forward to commenting on your fantastic articles, poems, rants and raves when I return. If I don't respond to you right away, just kn ow it's because I will have very limited internet access while I'm away. I look forward to touching base with you all again next week.

So, from the bottom of my heart, from me and Andrea and our two little girls baby and Bella, Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah,Winter solstice, etc. etc. Enjoy your families and enjoy whatever celebrations you and your special one's partake in. You are amazing people. Each and everyone of you.


My Gift to You

Is some reading material (by me, of course) that you may or may not not be familiar with. If you start missing me too badly, just pull up one of these articles and I'll be right there with you!

God bless you and yours. Ta ta for now!

Thanks for Reading
