Yes. Here, too.

All this rain as snow would make it difficult to get out of here in a couple of weeks....which I am starting to think toward.

A Different Life II

As a long time former Scout Leader, I'd be super proud that the kids kept their heads and got help to him. It can be a tough job being an Adult Scout Leader, and it's not unusual that the adults take a beating at times. I've collected my share of battle scars... If seems to be one of the traditions. I'm glad he's going to be alright.

Managed to survive raising three Eagle Scouts, somehow😄😄😄

Yep....those boys were trained well, and responded to the crisis accordingly.

They deserve medals.

Rain, rain and more rain here, and a high today in the 60's. It is one of those winters.

It doesn't feel very Christmas-y, but then maybe that is for the best, letting me ease into things this year, without also having to shovel snow.

Going to finish pulling things together today for the holiday and family thing after....need to do a bit of pre-planning for having the grands here for several days, too. Mostly, food.

We might do some trekking around Starved Rock one day while they are here....hike, look for bald eagles on the river, etc., if it has even been cold enough for the Eagles to come south. ...show them where Grandma grew up, the church I went to, hospital I worked at a couple of different times, have lunch at the high school hangout.... Hmm?

After some twinges early on, it is all okay.

Life changes, life goes on.

Merry Christmas, Maggie, and everyone else who reads her thread as regularly as I do.

Airstream, dog and I head south today. Plan to driveway camp at my daughter's home in Bryan, TX for Christmas. First "camping" trip with Blackie along--wish us luck.

Have a safe trip, Mimi.....if Blackie is like most other dogs, they love to go bye-bye in our rigs. Lots of new places to sniff and pee and do what dogs do.


Merry Christmas to you, as well, and to all of my AirForums friends.

XO. Maggie

New Year's day we start the trek to FL from PIT. So far this winter it almost does not seem worth it, 62 degrees now, going to 70 tomorrow. February is the only month forecasters now anticipate to be winter. I checked and this same thing happened in 1932-33 with much higher than normal temps in all but the Northwest and in PIT only 14" of snow all year.

Yep....we have had tornadoes in December before, and there are warnings for parts of southern Illinois.

But, if all this rain were snow....

It is warm enough outstide, and humid enough with the rain, that I have the ceiling fan on in the living room.


Aretha doing Christmas carols on the stereo.....Doug loved Aretha Franklin, and we saw her in person once when my daughter was at EIU. You know, those parent weekends where musicians "from the old days" are brought in to appeal to the parent generation.

Doug always called Aretha his first love, and said he would have married her if she'd had him.

That was my man.

Thanks, Tommie.

Looking forward to seeing you at Alumalina....tho looking your location up on the maps, you are very far north for a stop on my way to Charleston.

It's all okay, really.....the holiday feels a bit bland and flat, for lack of a better description, but it could be worse, right?

Some things I usually do I am just skipping, and I am most looking forward to having my grands for a few days.

Life changes, and then we lean on memories past.

Christmas Eve day....some cooking to be done for tomorrow.


Maggie

Have I ever mentioned how much I love my woodstove?

It warms and comforts my heart...every...single...time.

Very much a living thing.

Merry Christmas from Ohio too! (we're having the same basic weather you are having -- strange to say the least!)

We're about ready -- our kids/grands will be coming for the day tomorrow. Our son, who is disabled will be coming today to stay through the weekend (or until he decides he's ready to return to his home/roommates). Today, well, today will be a struggle -- we're visiting my in-laws this afternoon (stressful!), please say a prayer for me.

Deb

Thanks, Deb, and I will be thinking of you this afternoon.

My stressful one is Saturday....but then I will have the grands.

I miss having Doug to commiserate and decompress with after these toxic sibling things....now it is just a glass of wine.

Deep breaths, perhaps a bit of mood altering something , will get me thru.


Maggie.
