There's nothing like being with family during the holiday season. I spent a week with my Aunt Regina and Uncle Paul Haas in Estero, Florida, a week or so ago. It was so much fun. I loved being with them and listening to many stories. I also had the opportunity to ask a lot of questions about how things were in the world and with my family before I was even born! What fun that was. My aunt is the smartest woman on the planet. I love her down-to-earth style, wit and wisdom. I hope to see them again soon. Being retired and able to come and go (as long as we can find a dogsitter) is such a blessing. Merry Christmas.
