Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from Key West!

Short Link: http://j.mp/8bsdDO

My parents live on a farm in Illinois (center upper right). That’s the Mississippi River in the lower left and a backwater lake (center) where I fished from my eight-foot flat boat (it’s still in there in the weeds. Imagine three boys and a big ~1950 Johnson outboard motor on such a tiny vehicle. We moved very slowly.). In the winter the lake would freeze and we’d skate, sled, and snowmobile. It was a lot of fun!

Nowadays I spend most of my time in DC or Atlanta. DC can be fun in the winter too.

But my folks now spend their winters in an RV by the ocean in Key West. This is their view! Wow. One of my aunts knitted or darned (or whatever!) that red, gray, and white “throw.” Comfort food for the soul.

Eventually we head to Mallory Square to watch the sunset.

That’s our holiday tradition. I hope you enjoy yours as much!

Again, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
