Wishing you Happy Holidays
Some of us are lucky to be able to blog and say Happy Holidays to the folks 'away'. (Okay, I know we have put that expression on the opposite foot but you might be 'away' too.)
Also, it's time for the get up and go mode after a long hiatus on solid ground. Refitting continues at a brisker pace, while another big Publix bird is roasting in the oven, with sweet potatoes, which are wonderfully plentiful here.
We have been lucky to share the company of many terrific people while in Jacksonville. Some have taken us around to see the Christmas sights and lights, a nice way to end the year.
After our quest to escape snow, we are flabbergasted to see that people in
Florida act as if it is a major part of the holiday, even thought rare here. Perhaps it's the inspiration of the old crooners, (Sinatra or Crosby?), dreaming of a white Christmas? Their dreams may come true as we launch on Monday or Tuesday, with predictions of another Artic air mass, winds up to 45 and temperatures into the teens. LOL Perfect motivation to skidaddle.
Right now things are 'merry and bright'
as we're working away in shirt sleeves. And thankfully things change, eventually and always.
Looking forward to wishing you Happy New Year from Vero Beach.
