Christmas tree this year, with the help of my cousin Becky. It’s so cute I think I’ll leave it up ‘til Mardi Gras – continuing the celebration of all things gumbo. Plus, Mardi Gras comes early this year – February 9.
When reviewing my five-year-old post the fact strikes me that American soldiers are still fighting in the same region, which local military folks call “the sandbox.” I ‘m sorry for never writing the Christmas cards I had hoped to send the soldiers over there. The Fred Astaire Dance Studio in Pensacola was collecting signed Christmas cards to send to “any soldier.” So I hope this post reaches “any” and every American soldier overseas and at home to wish them a Happy 2016.
