Happy, Happy Holidays to all our family and friends!

We were planning on having an at home Christmas this year, but have been called to Indiana. Ron's mom is not doing well and this is where we need to be. So, we are having a white, snowy Christmas instead of a white, sandy Christmas. Shortly after Christmas, if possible, we'll be flying to Tucson, Arizona to hike the desert, see friends, and cheer the U of A Wildcats on to victory. We have plans to see several games in Tucson and then follow them to LA for games at USC and UCLA.

Since returning from our summer trip in August, we have done some small trips to Indiana, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, West Virginia, and North Carolina. When at home we continue to enjoy the freedom that our retirement provides. Life is good!

We hope all of you have a great holiday with fun times, good health, and precious memories.

God Bless,
Pam & Ron

snowbird sightings...
Hi Pam! Great to hear from you. The snowbirds - and that includes Arthur - are quickly filling up the carports here at the Cove. I am so happy to be back from Philly...what an experience. We missed our window of opportunity and got stuck in the 22 inches of snow a few days ago. We finally flew in yesterday! Art bought a bike today to tool around here with me, and his tennis buddies from last year were thrilled to see him back. Kind of the way the staff at Publix feels about me. I hope you have a wonderful holiday! My thoughts and prayers are with you and Ron. Let me know if you need anything on this end. I hope we see you soon, Arlene

Beautiful white Christmas
Beautiful picture of the two of you in the wintery snow. Much as you both love the cold--the picture is great.
