Was it a Wonderful Life, or more like Christmas Vacation? I hope you loved your time with the loved ones over the holiday. We did, and we still will, this weekend with my Mom and Dad. It’s easy to take people for granted, then one day they’re gone. So live it up now. Don’t be afraid of your Aunt Esther, and smile warmly at Cousin Edgar….even Cousin Eddie, if you’ve got one.
Our family is a Christmas morning family when it comes to gifts. Mrs. Poteet grew up in a Christmas Eve family. Of course, our little family has gotten older, and both teenage boys were still wide awake at 1am Christmas morning, not even to the point of sugarplums and Nintendo and X Box dancing in their heads. It’s really my fault.We got back from the late service and decided to take our annual Christmas photo. You’d think the one person among the four of us who has to face a tv camera every day would know how to pose. Not so much. I was the weakest photo link, and I think we spent half an hour smiling in vain for just the right shot. You don’t get to see any of those pictures, but I did get photographic evidence of (news anchor voice) a SHOCKING train derailment, and the accident’s cause.
