Dear Mrs. Tipper and your beautiful family:
From down here, in our common home, EARTH, I want you to come to you, your family and all countrymen Appalachian our best wishes for peace and happiness on this day that the child Jesus was born again.

May God always protect you and my not forsake me, (words of my beloved grandfather). From Buenos Aires, Argentina (38 ° C), MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL, José Luis.

Good Morning, Merry Merry and Happy Happy....
I hope you folks have a Merry Christmas Day as well...and that Santa hit the trip wire and spilled all his presents at your house!

Merry Christmas to all!!

Hey Tipper: Your 'singing' fellows make our morning more perfect. Jim got a new MANDOLIN and is working so hard to master it! We spent last night with our THREE GRANDS! The youngest took to that MANDOLIN like no body's business.

Send some more snow! It was beautiful yesterday but just flew by on the way to North Carolina.

Thanks for all the good cheer you share!

Happy Christmas to everyone!
