Everyone arrived at the lake yesterday: Two baby boomers, our three sons, one significant other, and five dogs. The house is decorated and firewood has been gathered. It is cold and a white Christmas is expected across most of Kentucky. Games today, cheese and chocolate fondue tonight, followed by Mass, glasses of “Patterson’s Secret Christmas Punch” and viewing of “It’s a Wonderful Life.”
We are very fortunate to be together. I hope that all of you are in a good place this holiday season.
