"There's no place like home",
but I'd bet if she thought about it
She would have realized
There's no place like OZ!
and it was a beautiful day here in Wexford, Pennsylvania. We could have been depressed, being thousands of miles away from our loved ones, but this holiday hasn't worked out like that at all.
Its was a unique Christmas.
We ate some left overs from last nights BBQ, and went to Walgreen's a to buy one of those cheap massagers. We got a few text messages. We IMed a little. We even did a web cam.
We didn't open any gifts.
I want everyone to know, that was what we expected. These contracts have given us experiences that we would never have gotten if we spent Christmas in Las Vegas.
Life has provided the greatest gifts of all. We've seen this United States,
from San Diego to Seattle, from the Florida Keys, to Washington DC. We've traveled the country collecting memories that some may never acquire.
This could have been my 30th Christmas in Las Vegas.
But this wasn't just another Christmas. This was an exceptional Christmas. Our memories are what we'll store
in the top of our closet this year and I'll share them with you on this web site as the years pass by.
To all of those at home,
We miss and love you very much !!!
From Far Far Away

12/21/2008 00:00:01jim Brrrr...Today is the first day of Winter
This is the shortest day of the year when the sun is furthest due south.
It is just 1 degree outside. The wind chill factor is -10 degrees.
12/20/2008 17:57:02jim The Day the Earth Stood Still
This movie is a real sleeper. Its the bomb...
I mean that literally. I liked the last 4 minutes, when the Earth loses all electricity, and it cuts to "The End". Keanna Reeves never got to use any of his talents.
I suppose, maybe, why I didn't like it was because it cost $13 a ticket, a small bottle of Coke cost $4.25, the chairs were uncomfortable, and the screen looked smaller than the one in our bedroom.

SAE turns 385 years of age on Sunday, the 14th.. So, he'll be a drunken fool.Maybe he can IM with Jimmy R. Cutlar on Saturday, this weekend.
Got an email from Pat Hill this week. He didn't say much, but knew I was at RJ and had my email. Unhappy with the fact he knew this, so I will sniff down the informant, and bite off his weiner.(And of course, spit it out)

12/11/2008 16:14:56jim Snow, Beautiful Snow
12/08/2008 04:50:49jim Its 14 degrees in Pittsburgh
It snowed powder all weekend long.
We watched about 50 cars stop on the road below our apartment. They seemed to be stuck in the street.
They may have been playing it safe while waiting for a salt truck. These roads were soooo slick,
Several of the people left their cars and walked up to their apartments, waiting for help to arrive.
That seemed odd to me. You never see something like that in California
I took the truck out to do some sliding!
I thought it was fun, but then again, I wasn't worried about losing control.
Ya just gotta love 4 wheel drive with anti-lock breaks in weather like this.
Pix-2-come. I left my camera in the truck.
