On the Eve of Christmas

Richard Skinner

May all of you reading this have a joyous, peaceful, and safe Christmas Day.

May you also have a prosperous and productive year of 2017. (Safe, too!) May those dreams and wishes that are most dear to you come to pass.

For the brothers and sisters in arms of my son – who we are very grateful to have home this year – that are not able to spend the season with their loved ones – may you soon return to their arms, whole in body, sound in mind, and with your mission accomplished. My prayers and those of my family are with you, always.

Now, it’s time for me to get back to work around this place…

…cleaning up the Great Cookie Mess after the daughter…

…getting the ham glaze made for tomorrow…

…figuring out where the heck I put that last present that I suddenly realized is still not wrapped…

…generally going quite mad (in a good way).

Not that I’m complaining. It’s been many years since I have had to track down various sizes of (unexpired) batteries, some of which I swear are only available to Jedi Knights. Or try to wiggle Part MT into the space between Part GR and Part NX (is this one really necessary? Dang it…)

Merry Christmas to all.
