Ho, ho, ho --- Merry Christmas! -- 2011 was very good to me.

Every week that I am not traveling out west I drive an hour and a half to my daughter's home and babysit for my grandson, Ollie. On the second morning of my 2 day stay I often go out for a pre-dawn breakfast. I am now sitting at McDonald's just having finished a bacon, egg, cheese biscuit and the necessary amount of diet coke --- mostly for its caffeine.

So every year at this time I pause to think about all I have to be thankful for in my life. And the process always chokes me up a little.

Elvis is singing "Santa bring my baby back to me" and I am browsing some old LRH forum threads that mention me and my family. The new LRH site search feature is located in the upper right corner of every page and we just got it put up a day ago. That's how I found the threads.



I just came across this picture of my now two and a half old grandson as part of a two year old LRH forum thread. Ollie is getting a new baby sister in about 4 weeks. More about her when she arrives.



"It's Christmas and we're in love" is now playing and it is obviously referring to the relationship I have with my 8th grade sweetheart, Kathy.

The next picture is of my first granddaughter, Mia Pearl, born 4 years ago. She's crying because Santa said she can't have a 338 EDGE rifle just yet, she should start with a .243 and work her way up. Mia has a one and a half year old sister named Ellie Drew. (My son's name is Andrew)



"Have a holly, jolly Christmas?" is now playing. Here's picture of Ellie and Santa from a week ago.

So what is important in life?

I'd say for me it's a healthy, happy, growing family. A lot of good friends on LRH. A wonderful hunting season, much of it spent with my son, Andy.



What are you thankful for this year?

Len and all.
May you have a very very merry Christmas and a great 2012.
There are many many things for me to be thankful for. Most of all is that my honey is healthful after going through breast cancer surgery and her outlook is outstanding.
Makes one realize what is really important in life.

Take care all and enjoy the things to come!
