9 more sleeps!!

Hi Everyone: Well you don't need to be told that the Big day is on it's way and we hope that next weekend all your Christmas wishes will come true! In these days of political correctness I feel rather bold using the full name Christmas, but deal with it.
Gale and I are just putting the finishing touches on the shopping and the house decorating. We are having our two Daughters, and a number of other relations over for Christmas. It is always a great time and of course,with way too much food and the odd drink! We are going out today to kill the yearly tree so we can spread needles all over the deck and the inside of the living room for the next couple of weeks. Over the years the act of finding the perfect tree, putting it up, and decorating, has come close to divorce, but it's is memorable never the less.
You will notice our yearly newspaper coming in the mail any day now. It has a summary of the past years news and a bunch of pictures of many of yourselves, so have a look you may be in there and read it from front to back when you have a second. We also included the new 2012 price list for your information. Don't worry there are not too many changes! On a related note we have had a couple of guests buy trips for their loved one's for Christmas and it is not to late to do this if you are looking for a unique gift that will be remembered for years to come. Give us a call and we can make it happen Today!
The one thing I look forward to this time of year the most is Dec. 21st. as this is the day that the day light begins to get longer. I'm sure I'm not the only one, but these short days and cold weather, persistent clouds, snow, wind, furnace running, nothing on T.V. but football and the X factor, are getting to me. I bet you can't tell!!!!
We are leaving for the Keys a couple of days after Christmas this year and I can't wait to put on only shorts and flip flops for a few month's. I told my Daughters and Brother, while they are visiting us next week, that if, after they open their gifts they hear their cars warming up in the driveway and see the tree thrown over the over the deck, it's time to go!! Hint Hint!
Anyways, Gale and I do wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and we hope that Rainbow Point Lodge will be part of your 2012 thoughts and that we can make your year even that much more enjoyable. Also please take a second to comment on this Blog as it is fun to see how many people really read this stuff. Take Care. BOB and GALE
