It seems that our beloved Scot has been overwhelmed with the spirt of Christmas and given me a Christmas Eve Pardon. Thank you Scot and merry Christmas to you and yours.

Next item on the agenda, THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU ALL for the Christmas cards. They are a total joy and I've been so out of it recently ( long story ) I have not been kind enough this year to return the favor. But I thank you from the bottom of my heart you have no idea how much on this particular Christmas they meant to me.


Lastly just for the fun of it I'm posting this on my new little Aspire One sub notebook. My Powerbook bit the dust ( One too many drops on hard surfaces ) and given the current state of the economy and my wallet in particular, I could not justify shelling out $2,000 for another Powerbook. So for $340 with a wireless mouse I'm coming to grips with the dark side, and I do like the compact size & weight for a route salesman it fits the bill.

So glad to be back and Merry Christmas from Cold Spring on Hudson ..... everyone.

Merry Christmas to you Joe.
I feel like I am writing to a convict though.
I like it better when you are around regular.
Have you been looking at the Maine August cruise thread?
