Today is Christmas. And, Oh, what a Christmas 2011 is!
From where I come from in New York, friends and family are bundling in woolen layers, cranking the heat up a notch, and checking cars for anti-freeze and dead batteries. Brrrr! It's 12 degrees up there!
I admit, this writer enjoyed reporting that here in The Villages temperatures reached a mighty warm 80 and dressed in sandals, shorts and sleeveless tee shirt, I snapped photos to remember forever how I spent the 25th day of December 2011.
Merry Christmas, Everyone!
Until this time next time.
See you in print,
