Bah humbug! Being with my family at church, at dinner, and opening presents is such a DRAAAAAAAG! A child's laughter is soooooo over-rated. Seeing their faces light up? BOOOOOORING!

So I am certainly NOT going to wish you and yours the same mind-numbing ennui I'm having to endure!

:shock: :shock: And to think that I was just about to pencil in Anthony Treacher as the all time greatest curmudgeon in the history of Track & Field News.. :wink:

All kidding aside though, thanks to everybody who expressed holiday wishes for us all.. I hope everyone here, and their loved ones, have a beautiful holiday season and great new year to come.

Being an ardent Festivus observer, let me just say I've got a lot of problems with you people! And now you're gonna hear about it!

I wish everyone Seasons Joy.. but, honestly, Christmas has become a drag for me, involving a 600 mile circuit in 24 hours to make three Christmas gatherings; one in Altus on Christmas eve, one Christmas morning in OKC (for my younger daughter's Santa Claus age children) and one in Stillwater (all adults) on Christmas evening.
This year, the expected snow storm promted Altus and OKC to have Christmas today so I already have two down, one to go. I will only go to Stillwater tomorrow weather permitting..we are flexible on the date..after all, Biblical scholars tell us they are at least three months off on the probable actual celebrated birth date.

lonewolf, not to scold, but be thankful for those you have, and find joy with them. Mrs. DrJay and I split in 2008 (my call, so that part's OK) and my two kids are with their mom last night, today, this week (she's not even into trading 24 hours like on the 26th, even though she'd receive the same in return next year when they're with me the first half of Xmas break.) They're only a few miles away, but I reckon I'd drive a very long way to be with them today, if I could.

All we had to do was to travel 90 miles yesterday and back home today. It was nice.

Merry Xmas everybody.
Arrived in the USA (LAX) at 11:30am after 13 hours being a sardine.
The grandchildren got to enjoy having 2 Xmas days as we left 7:00pm Xmas day.
One really good thing about traveling with grandchildren is that even though you get off the plane last and arrive at US Immigration with 10 zillion people in front of you, you get whisked to the side and to the front because of 10 month old screaming her head off.
