Merry Christmas everyone! My sincere hope is that all of you, each and every one, will have a joyous Christmas and a wonderful New Year.
Just wondering if any others out there are spending this sacred night solo.
Besides my trusty Boxer, Django the Wonderdog, and a new edition to the household, a gorgeous long-haired black cat I have dubbed Jackson, I have the house to myself all evening and night.
Tomorrow, it will be family wall-to-wall at mom's house, complete with gifts and an excellent multi-calorie dinner. But, tonight, I'll enjoy a quiet supper and a nice cappuccino, watching "The Muppet Christmas Carol," and maybe "A Christmas Story." Probably turn in early.
Anyone else in Freeperland alone tonight? Just curious.
Not this year. But dealing with a heartbroken daughter who had her a-hole boyfriend break up with her tonight.
I have been alone in the past. It is not fun. They are right about going to church. It is good to be around life, and feel the spirit. He might just have something in store for you tonight. Go with it.
The dog is very happy I brought home leftovers!
Whatever you do this year, do not try to make eggnog. I did that once. It makes a mess. Egg whites everywhere. Talk about a white Christmas!
Anyone up for a limerick and/or haiku writing contest?
My friend was stressing early December about what to buy her boyfriend for Christmas, or his birthday (Dec. birthday). I told her I had made the observation a few years ago that when I need something, I buy it. So I really don’t have material wants or needs when it comes to Christmas. Why not plan a trip somewhere with him.
She did that. He loved it.
Personally, I found some property I want on the Colorado-Wyoming border, so if anyone is dying to give me a gift... LOL!
Merry Christmas Old Sarge, may your New Year be full of blessings and good fortune.
Merry Christmas to all!
Not a chance...straight out of the container.
Well, Skooz, I’m all alone with my wife tonight. We lost our dog in March and miss her terribly. We’ll wait the full year and a bit and see if we can find another companion. The place is empty without her....she was really, really great! You have a Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year. We hope we all get what we want in November.
How about a few more just for INSPIRATION?

Its Christmas Eve. Good deeds count extra tonight. Think of an important thing you can do for other and go do it. Just follow the star in your heart. The Bird Lady, Home Alone 2.

Youre soft. Youre sloppy! Youre unruly! Youre undisciplined and I never saw anything look so wonderful in my whole life. Thank you all. Gen. Thomas F. Waverly, White Christmas. This
I’m glad you posted this. Merry Christmas.
Give ‘em (the Taliban) a Christmas round for me. And Merry Christmas to you soldiers so far away but in our prayers. Thanks.
Take it from someone who knows: There is life after divorce Old Sarge, and I wish you the best. Been divorced since ‘79, raised my two sons by myself, and never remarried. It took me a while to realize it, but many of the things I accomplished in my life, I never would have been able to do had I remained in a bad marriage. I took a sad event, learned from it, and moved on to a better life. I live alone, and that’s the way I like it.
Thank you so much, Irish, and Merry Christmas to ya!
Merry Christmas Old Sarge, I’ve seen you here a lot as I lurked about. I just come and go, don’t post a whole lot but your a name I know.
Wishing you well.
I am alone myself buddy but have decided that is what it is. I thank God I served my country and was pretty damn good at it. I also thank God that my countrymen was there for me.
You have a very Merry Christmas and find the Canten for some excellent songs.
Another thing, Skooz, Thank you for your post. It reminds me again of the wonderful camaraderie among relative strangers that is evoked by being able to participate in FR forums. God Bless all of you!!
I like dogs.
Yep- egg nog out of the carton, a carton of egg nog ice cream, some brandy and rum and it tastes homemade.
Thank you and Old Sarge for MY FREEDOM.....I pray for all the Vets EVERY DAY and I always say” THANK YOU GOD FOR THESE BRAVE MEN”.....who VOLUNTEER to SERVE for ME...for MY FREEDOM.......and NEVER, EVER, EVER ask for payment from me. I get to live my life of freedom and YOU pay MY price. THANK YOU simply is never enough. GOD BLESS OUR MILITARY!!!!
