Christmas is here and so is Julane’s retirement!!  To say she is excited would be an understatement.  Her last full day at the college was December 13th.  It is hard for us to believe that she is finally retired from teaching and is looking at drawing Social Security.

Mom came out to join us for Christmas.  For once, Julane decided to drive out to WV and back rather than try to fly.  Guess it was a bad plan since the weather turned horrible on the last day of travel.  The car hit some black ice and spun out into a ditch.  Luckily no one was hurt - word is still out on the car - and they got to spend a lovely night at the only motel in Odessa MO.  Lucky for them, Pizza Hut could deliver dinner!  Julane plans to take Mom home after the first of the year (weather permitting!).

Julane is planning lots of time to work on the family histories so keep those pictures and stories coming!

That’s all for today - Have a Happy New Year!
