Christmas in the Glades

Christmas is a time for friends and family, a time to remember loved ones, a time of joy and peace and goodwill towards men. Unfortunately, it was very complicated this year. COVID-19, political unrest (not in the world but here), and global warming have put us all on edge. So here, we take a step back from the stresses and be thankful for what we have.

We, as full-time campers, have survived a lot in the last 12 months. Covid is running rampant across the country and world but we’ve managed to stay safe and healthy. Finding a place to land our home was complicated by covid-related shutdowns, but we managed to limp back from the Southwest and found a place to park in Leeds. Thank you Owen. Politically speaking … well, I’m leaving that alone. I will say, I’m glad our Republic survived the attempted coup.

As we celebrate family and love, goodies were sent and received. We’re in Florida so we sent some oranges northward (Man! You’d think they grow on trees or something! sarcasm Oh wait! They do.). We received a goodies package from Amazon (Thank you Dilman’s!). All in all, it was nice to be in the swamp, listening to Jimmy Buffett sing “Christmas in the Caribbean”, and getting a sun tan.

We truly hope all of you take a moment and sit back to count your blessings. Philosophically, you can look at the glass and say, “It’s half empty!” Or you can say, “It’s half full!” I choose the latter.

To quote my boss of a decade ago, “Make it a great day …or not. The choice is yours!”

Coming soon, more tales from the Campah!
