A Week Before Christmas Sunday

Good morning Friends. I just received an email from Nancy, my travel agent and he said that she will be seeing me next week with all the necessary material we need for our cruise. I'm really ready. I was talking with my friend Gerry and he told me that he planned a cruise in February 7th. He will be going roughly some of the same ports that we'll be at. Mary Lou & I will be getting home on February 9th. I told Gerry, that when he gets home form his cruise, we'll have to sit together and talk about our cruises.
For now we are all waiting just for Christmas. Last night Mary Lou & I were at my daughter's home visiting the grandchildren while they go to their Christmas party. I had a great time with Emily & Cole.
One day I found a photo that a friend of mine. He was called Sarge Charlie. He was the husband of my wonderful friend Bee. Every Christmas he and I would talk about the homes that have Christmas lights. I use to put a lot of lights on my home during Christmas. Charlie every year would send me this photo letting me know that he also put Christmas light on his place. What a funny character Sarge was. I really miss him a great deal. Here is the photo he sent me.
                        Love you Charlie.

Mistletoe JokeKissing under the mistletoe

Jennifer was a pretty 18 year old girl.  In the week before Christmas she sauntered up to the curtain counter, and was trying to decide which of the many types of tinsel she would buy.  Finally, she made her choice and asked the spotty youth who was manning the fabric section.  'How much is this gold tinsel garland'.
The spotty youth pointed to the Christmas mistletoe above the counter and said, 'This week we have a special offer, just one kiss per metre'.
'Wow, that's great', said Jennifer, 'I'll take 12 metres'.
With expectation and anticipation written all over his face, the boy measured out the tinsel, wrapped up the garland, and gave it to Jennifer.
She then called to an old man who had been browsing through the Christmas trees and said, 'My Grandpa will settle the bill.'

Father Christmas CallsChristmas Traditions Germany

Alex was five; all his Christmas presents were always signed, 'from Father Christmas.'
A little while after Alex had opened all his presents on Christmas morning, we became aware that he was looking quite down in the mouth for no obvious reason.
'What's the matter, Al?' I asked.
'Ummmm', replied Alex slowly, 'I really hoped that you and Mummy would give me something for Christmas'.

Out of the Mouths... Amusing Christmas StoryRudolph the red nosed reindeer

Daniel aged 4, returned from Sunday school with a new perspective on the Christmas story.
He had learned all about the wise men from the east who brought gifts to the baby Jesus.
Daniel was so excited he just had to tell his parents, 'I learned in Sunday School today all about the very first Christmas. There wasn't a Santa Claus way back then, so these three blokes on camels had to deliver all the toys.  And Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer with his nose so bright wasn't there yet, so they had to have this big light in the sky to find their way around'.


           Well that's it for now my friends. 

                                    " See Ya "

                                " Cruisin Paul "
