Fun in the Snow


We are enjoying our Christmas vacation visiting my folks in the outback of the American Redoubt. Yesterday, we spent the afternoon playing in the snow - well, most of us played - some of us dealt with the realities of seldom used mechanical equipment. Can you guess who was having more fun?

Merry Christmas everyone. Unwrap the glorious gift of God!

  1. Enjoy family time, and snow for the holidays.
    God Bless You and Your Family. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year My Friend, From My Family To Yours!

  2. Blessings to you and your family in these times of remembrance of our Lord Christ. Difficult times they are but faith helps make them bearable.

    One should look up the true meaning of St. Nicholas, truly a brawler when the time of Christ our Lord's virtue was questioned. I give thanks to St. Nick as well as the Holy Trinity.

    Funny thing is, I'm not a Churchgoer but Our Lord is always close to my heart. Your renderings, stories and confessions over this last few years, has accomplished that to a large extent. Several blogs have helped the effort. RRev and Ann Barnhardt (caution on language with her but she is a straight shootin Catholic down to her core)

    Do not think your blog is frivolity as your teachings have brought me closer to the Lord and Saviour. I sometimes weep at your deeper posts, a former USMC Jughead. I will be forever thankful for the words the Lord puts to your posts.

    Have a Merrrrrry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

    I'll choose not to post my name due to my need to protect my manliness.

    God bless you, Sir Night and your children. Thank you for sharing as my children and family are gone from my life.

  3. Merry Christmas all.
    Bless you and thank you for your blog.


  4. Enola,


    Its in the 80's again down here in South Texas. It will cool down tomorrow when that big cold front pushes through.

    I hope you family and all the people that frequent this blog are doing well, and I wish them a Happy Christmas.

  5. Enola,

    (captain crunch again)

    I saw a snowmobile/snowmachine in those pics. That is probably the only land vehicle that I have not wiped out (crashed)

    I don't think there is a snowmobile in Texas (anywhere)

    1. I have seen exactly one snowmobile in my life-on a trailer out in I-75. I doubt there's many in Kentucky, either.
