During the height of the pandemic my wife decided that because we could not have our big family Christmas, we would leave our decorated tree up until we could get everyone together. Yesterday it finally happened. Turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes, etc, the whole shebang. The best thing was that we have several grandkids in the service and they can never get leave simultaneously. That is, until yesterday! Two sailors and one marine celebrated with their 15 cousins, eight aunts or uncles and their spouses, and one very proud set of grandparents. One sailor was even surprised by her boyfriend, who is currently stationed on the USS Hawaii. Instead of having to swelter inside a hot Santa suit this year I got to wear red cut-offs, white t-shirt, red sweat band, black suspenders, and black flip-flops. Makes me envy our Australian friends!

Sounds like a very enjoyable time. And the off duty/summer santa pic in my head is funny.

Awesome! Glad you finally got to enjoy your family!


I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be Douglas Adams

RV-less for now but our spirits are still on the open road.

Sounds like good times, good food, and I agree that the Florida Santa picture in my mind is great.
