Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas to everyone. Just so you'll know, Dylan is bummed that I won't be home today, but his sorrow is greatly mitigated by knowing that he'll have another Christmas day when I get home, and thus, more presents.

As for me, I'm simply thankful for all of the blessings in my life.

May your day be wonderful. If you're gonna have some eggnog, have one for me.

Merry Christmas, Hal. I'm with Dylan...a second Christmas is something to be happy about. I hope though, that you find something to be joyous about today.

Merry Christmas, man! Sorry you have to work and not be with the family.

Yesterday afternoon, I heard LifeFlight fly over the house on approach into the local hospital and thought to myself, "Somebody's Christmas just got ruined."

I know you always do, but fly *extra* safely today - and every day until the end of this hitch. You know what I'm saying.

Merry Christmas Hal from our family to yours.
Imay just have to have TWO eggnogs for you today.
Safe return soon.

Merry Christmas, Hal! Let us know when you celebrate again and I'll wish you another happy one.

No eggnog at our house, but I'll be glad to eat an extra piece of pie or cookie for you.

Merry Christmas, Hal! I thought about you today as I watched my boys.

I'm blessed; you're blessed.

Dylan's second Christmas with you will be well worth the ache in your heart today.

You're a special dad, my friend.

Hal, just so you don't feel alone in missing the holiday, I got REAL sick Christmas eve and was miserable throughout Christmas day.

I did it for you, man.

Hal Johnson said...

Ouch Mike. Next time, just have an eggnog for me, okay?

Actually, barring a schedule change, I'm due to have next Christmas off. Yee haw!
