A Merry Christmas to all.

.

Wherever you are and however you choose to celebrate, I hope it brings you joy. There’s been a decided lack of that this year… and I doubt I’m alone when I say I’m ready to kiss 2020 goodbye.

Our holiday will be small and quiet, and in true 2020 fashion the only thing Santa saw fit to bring me this year was a torrential rain storm with 65 mph winds that will melt the snow, cause a power outage, and make our ceiling spout water like the Bellagio’s fountain. Good times!

But my husband and I have our health… and each other. I can’t ask for more.

So instead of boring you with some sappy Christmas post, I’ll leave you with two pictures.

1. Is it any wonder this was one of the Christmas cards I sent out this year?

I think not.

2. A little blast from the past…. yours truly on Santa’s lap.

It’s the only such photo I have, as my mother told me I ditched St. Nick at a very early age and refused visits after this one. To those who know me well, this shouldn’t come as any surprise.

Ho! Ho! Hmm….

Pass the eggnog.

    1. We’ve needed to do that all along, not that it made any difference to some people. Maine mandated masks months ago and there are still stores that refuse to comply. It’s such a simple thing, I just don’t understand it.

      1. I see most complying. The small business owners are hurting but a few in power are on their side. I will keep a journal and see where we all be 4 years from now.

      2. Because our bodies need to defeat this, and to do that we need to expose ourselves to it and let the natural immunity system build it’s own defenses. That is the true science of viruses. You can only hide from your enemies for so long before you have to face them.

  1. Well, the casino beckons today, so maybe my luck will hold until the end of the year. Although not sure where my odds are best: casino or the coming years. We shall see. Interestingly enough, I notice more foreigners from overseas tired of wearing masks and not in compliance, so they may agree with theearthspins as their countries have experienced different things. Who knows? Wishing all the best.

  2. When I was young, like under 6, my grandparents used to hire a Santa for me and my cousins at our family Christmas get-togethers. He always smelled horrible. I don’t know if it was booze or some horrid mouthwash, but blech! Maybe that’s why you refused to see Santa after this photo. You certainly don’t look impressed.
