This in many ways was the best I remember of all the Christmas days.No expectations,obligatory visits to the inlaws,or overeating at too many tables. A quiet morning in my home followed by a pleasent walk around the park with the world and Nice the dog in tow.Cheerful people, good conversation, and well wishing smiles.
Then the gifts. I did receive were far beyond any thing I could have imagined.A sleeping-bag for the walk in spring.A call from both my Sisters, and clothes. A giftcard from a friend. Beautiful weather and no stress. The best Christmas.
Still on track for leaving mid-spring. Any help is appreciated call 502- 408 -5772

Today the rains of Fall rinse the last leaves from the trees. Outside the window a branch dropped in the yard. Like a squirrel I broke it up a stowed it on the wood pile.Winter is just days away and the deep freezes will set in. My son and I will wait out the seasons cold till spring sprouts and our dreams sprout anew.
