Christmas 2008

This is our beloved Poppett on
Christmas morning!
She was 9 1/2 years old this month.
She doesn't really like Christmas
except for her gifts from Santa.

Our gift list was smaller this year,
but we did get a wonderful
Caribbean Cruise
that leaves in 3 weeks.

We'll be using an Italian line this trip
called MSC.
It's fairly new to our shores,
but is said to be very good.
Our only objection is that the ship is so big!
3000 guests and about that many crew.
We prefer much smaller ships
with the number of guest being less than 500.
There are almost none available now.
All the cruise lines are building ever bigger ships,
so we will soon go back to doing
all land travel on our own.
We just grab a tour book
and a map
and take off into part unknown.
How lovely!

We have spent most of this past week with family.
We have 2 more dinners this weekend,
a New Year's Eve party,
and 2 birthday parties next week.
Ray was off all this week and will be off next week, as well,
but it seems that we have very little
time to spend together.

I hope that all of your Christmases were lovely
I wish you a very happy and prosperous new year!

Ruth Ann
