I'm off (to play with Junior and catch up on some neglected-of-late one-on-one time with my patient & loving missus) until after the first of the year. Dial-up connection being what it is (and no other viable option for me in Slapout), in the serious likelyhood that I will be MIA from Arfcom for the next 10 days or so let me take this opportunity to wish each & every one of my Gulf States brethren here a sincere and hearty Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. May the Good Lord bless and keep you and yours as you travel throughout this hectic season and may He bless us all with a healthy and happy 2006!

So, from an aging parrot-head (a "pirate" who really will look at 40 in the coming year, Lord willing ), I'll leave you with the lyrics to a song which I am utterly incapable of listening to without tearing up...




Merry Christmas, Alabama (Never Far from Home)


Merry Christmas, Alabama
Merry Christmas, Tennessee
Merry Christmas, Louisiana
To St. Barth's and the Florida Keys

Merry Christmas, Mississippi
Where I started this wild and crazy run
Such a long way from that first birthday
Merry Christmas, Everyone

And Merry Christmas, Colorado
Though far from you all I have roamed
'Tis the season to remember
All the faces and the places that were home

'Tis the season to remember
And to count up all the ports of call I've known
And to thank His mercies tender
For I'm never far from home

Merry Christmas to my saints and guardian angels
Who protect me as I roam
All the faces and the places that were home

Guess my life's moved at near light speed
Since I started this wild and crazy run
Such a long way from that first birthday
Merry Christmas, Everyone

'Tis the season to remember
That we're never far from home

Merry Christmas, Everyone
