Happy Christmas

Filed under: Historical Material,Of Interest,Publications,Uncategorized — Stephen Shepherd @ 6:30 am

Well, indeed, it was a Happy Christmas and will get Merry* later on.  Got together with the family yesterday in Reno, sister and two nieces came up from California and spent the afternoon.  One niece had to return yesterday but my sister and other niece are spending a couple of days here.

For the gift exchange, I got my nephews name and wrapped up some holiday spirits, it was the proper choice.  Last month my sister asked me what I wanted and I told her exactly what I wanted, how much it cost and where she could make the purchase.  After all of the details were noted, she asked what is an alternative?  I said that the alternative was that I wouldn’t speak to her again.  She came through.

Of course my family thinks that this is one strange Christmas present and my grand niece and grand nephew just couldn’t understand.  Well I wasn’t much company after I opened my present as I had my head in this book reading away.  After a while my sister realized that it was the perfect present, I couldn’t be happier.

Happy Christmas one and all.

* in the nineteenth century to be Merry was to have actually gotten into the holiday spirits and imbibed.



  1. Happy Christmas,
    If that is an actual image of your gift, Wow, that is incredible, I can see why you would be unavailable for further conversation.
