Ho Ho Ho

Merry Christmas from Little Africa! Okay, well, from Busch Gardens! I hope everyone up there in snowland is happy with the snow, because you can KEEP IT! We like not having to bundle up with extra clothing, and we like not having astronomical heating bills, and we like decorating palm trees! Currier and Ives pictures suit us just fine!

We may even prefer a day at the beach! But... While you Northerners may think it's great swimming weather, we, who have acclimated to this sub-tropical climate, think those who go swimming at this time of year are NUTS! We were actually thinking of buying a "winter home" farther south, and using this one as our summer residence!

Fort DeSoto County park was nice. When Dad comes again (hee hee), we really need to show him Lido Beach in Sarasota. Each beach is so different from the other, that seeing just one doesn't give a person the whole picture.

Please put the top pic on the family site. Everyone will love it. It makes a great Christmas Greeting!

Nice pictures!

I'd desperately love to become a snowbird and live down there with you from, say, November through April. It'd be nice to not have to wear longjohns...

But I'd have to leave my husband and all 3 kids up north. Lissa and James said they'd come visit me during school holidays, though! :)
