Merry Christmas Folks! Sitting in my kitchen cutting and wrapping (yet again) and feeling very fortunate. Lots of struggles going on out there, gather what family and friends you can and share all the cheer you can muster. Here's hoping and praying for better times and endless opportunities in the coming New Year to get out and hunt and fish and romp through the beauty that is still this country.

Merry Christmas to all!

Looking out the window at the worst white out I have ever experienced, and that is saying something, blizzard conditions in central Minnesota right now. Literally had to look, hard, for my exit off the freeway on my way home today. All family members accounted for, hunkered down, and awaiting the storm to pass.
The U of M cut us loose early today, but, the mailroom needed a little help and asked for volunteers to get the mail out.. Two printing services staff got the task done, with time to spare. The very few confirmed cases of COVID19 in the printing services building have all been very mild. A blessing for those families for sure.

Hope your blessings are greater still.

Best,
Ted

If it hits you like it is hitting us, you won’t be going anywhere for a while, Karl.

This was a picture from a few years past, at the conclusion of a -47 F dog run in the park. The deep cold isn�t that bad, provided it isn’t windy:

Yes, that is ice on our faces.

Best,

John, sorry to hear that news. Ted, looks like a good storm.

Here along the Canadian shore of Lake Ontario it’s going to be a green Christmas with no snow of significance forecast for the next two weeks.

Hard core Covid lockdown starts Boxing Day. My son will be joining me fir Christmas dinner.

Merry Christmas to all !

Great sentiment, Karl. I too would wish all here the best for health, happiness, laughter & time afield or on the range blastinating targets, be they clay or plastic.

Had to do a quick double take, Ted; your coat gives your dog the appearance of having rabbit ears at first glance.

Hope all being affected by the blizzard get past it w/o too much difficulty. Here, its just major windy; N 26 G 43, RH 43% feels below freezing already and will freeze later. Earlier it was 65. Hey(!), its Texas. Weather can and does change w/o much warning.

I've watched the kind of behavior you describe, JR and can honestly say that the outcome was not good for the children. FallCreekFan says it best & Der Ami's hope, while being exactly whot needs to happen is not likely, if she is a true Narcissist. Prayers for all of you.

Merry CHRISTmas to ALL, on this wonderful CHRISTmas Eve. May we all be keenly aware that, as we give presents to our loved ones, we are doing so in remembrance of the greatest gift ever given by anyone, Jesus. Mary, indeed, wrapped a present to the world when she wrapped Him in swaddling clothes. What a gift!!

My friends John, Judy and family, you are in my prayers this season. Queen and I have been through similar CHRISTmases, due to a son being divorced by his wife, and the ensuing "jerking around" the kids go through because of it. We can sympathize with your hurt. Give them a call, and tell them how much you love them and miss them. It will not be lost on them, they'll remember. Listen to them tell you all about what Santa brought. Hearing each other's voices is much, much better than nothing.

To all my friends in "snow country" ..............STAY SAFE!!, and blessings to you.


"With one foot in the grave ..........and one foot on the pedal, I was born a Rebel" T.P.
