Ho, Ho, Ho, Merry Christmas everyone! And a Happy New Year too!

If you are not a "Christmas" person, then Happy Chanakuh, Happy Winter Solstice, or Happy Kwanzaa, whichever one works for you. Hope you all are having (or had) a GREAT day! :happy-bouncyyellow: :handgestures-thumbupright: :DD

Same to you! Spent time with the family. My son was not able to come in due to work and school, but he's coming in January, just in time for my birthday and I have a show that weekend too so that'll be fun.
This was my wife's and my first empty nest Christmas. It felt kind of weird but, life goes on...….

Hey Jim,

We have three kids and two of them have their own kids. We now have 7 grandchildren. It's really a strange feeling the first time or two year with the empty nest, but the kids have their own lives and you have to get used to that. We have been empty-nesters for a long time now, but we had our son David home with us for Christmas this year. Was great fun, and he cooks!! He lived in Shanghai for 13-years, so his cooking is quite a bit different than what we are used to and he tends to serve everything in a bowl. Don't always know what it is I'm eating, but it's always good!

The coolest thing is when they have kids. You can spoil them rotten and when they get fussy or misbehave, just hand them back to their parents! Plus, I get to do cool things like read them The Night Before Christmas each year, even though they are about 1800 miles east of us.

Rock on!
