In the spirit

I was up too early this Christmas Eve. I’ll pay for it tonight and tomorrow. But I do have some time off after that so I can catch up on some rest which is much needed.

No white Christmas for this area this year. I don’t even see any in the forecast ahead. I’m sure we will get our share later.

Another holiday evening at work. It really takes a toll on the holiday spirit but I’ll snap out of it as soon as that quitting bell rings. The ride home should be a very quiet one. Not many people out and about before daybreak on Christmas morning.

All the camera batteries are charged so its time to load up and fill a few memory cards. And no better time than the present to get going.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • I know why SUV and pickup truck sales are higher. You need them because streets are becoming more like off road highways.
  • This is one of the few days a year that you can look at the person in the cars next to you and get a smile and a wave.
  • I hope Santa gets me some sleep for Xmas.
  • I hope to be around a long time, but just in case I’m making gifts a little more special each year.

With a lifetime and a half in the Newspaper industry I'm preparing for my retirement career as an Artist, Writer, Photographer and Video content provider. I'm a proud father of two wonderful children and I'm still married to the first girl I fell in love with and probably only one that would have me.
