Boxing Day And Allís Right With the World

Christmas day was a yuge celebration of life with Raj’s family, and by yuge I mean 44 of us representing 3 generations all gathered at what used to be Dad’s house. Of course the 3 generational gathering was a little bittersweet as last year’s celebration included a fourth generation. But life marches on, and now we are the older generation. If we can manage to pass on a modicum of the Greatest Generation’s wisdom I think the world will be okay. 

Now get about your Boxing Day chores and festivities. I think I’ll go back to bed for a bit. After 3 days of inter-generational immersion, life’s dramas great and small, and some really, really nasty winter driving yesterday on both the coming and the going I’m exhausted – in a good way.  I leave you with this much lovelier image of snow on the road, given to us a year ago from our own lovely Lili47, who I still worry about and miss. Thank you Lili, wherever you may be!

Not all is right. Harry isn’t out on the traditional shoot because of Markle.

I used to think that “Boxing Day” must have included some sort of pugilistic endeavors. Was disappointed when I learned what it was actually about.
