Good Morning.

The sun never sets on Dad's Tomato Garden Journal.

This is Christmas morning and I am not going to worry you with a blog for today. Just hope that all is well with you and yours, and that you have a good day.
Mary, Princess and I are doing very well. We don't have any plans at all for today, no family get together this year. We may find a good restaurant that is open and visit them. And then I might see if I can work in a nap. That's all I am going to say for now, if all goes well I will see you in the morning.

I will tell you this that it is a warm Christmas morning, here in the Tennessee Valley at 3 A.M. 47 degrees and the predictions are for plenty of sun today. When have we had a warm Christmas like that ? Take advantage of it and enjoy yourself. Love to all of you in every corner of this world. Dad

Dad, do you really think that reading your journal causes anyone any trouble or worry? Not a bit... in fact, it is many times the highlight of my day.

We are also planning a nice peaceful Christmas with an afternoon nap. I hope you and Mary are able to find someplace nice to eat... sometimes it is hard to find anyplace open on Christmas.

Blessings to you and yours on this special day.

Love, Becky

Good morning and Merry Christmas Dad. :) I havent been to bed yet and here you are up and about. I have cooked and cooked and cleaned up most of my mess from cooking. Now I am going to lay down for about four hours before I get back up to let the critters out and finish up a few things that need finishing around here. Mama and Daddy are coming early, they will be here around 11 a.m., Daddy says he wants to spend a bit of time with us before everyone else gets here. If you can't find a restaurant that is open, we are only three and a half hours away, we have plenty of food and good company. I didnt know you werent having a family get together for Christmas. You and Mary are welcome to come on if you like, I mean that. Now I better go lay down for just a little bit and catch a quick nap before daylight. Love, Kelly

Good morning and Merry Christmas! So glad I got a chance to visit you this morning! I have been way too busy. I hope you will take Kelly up on her offer. If I were closer, I'd be asking you to come by and enjoy the chaos with me, lol. I know it will work out for the best. As someone once shared with me, you are exactly where God wants you to be. Merry Christmas from my family to yours! God Bless!

I hope you all have a great Christmas day whatever you decide to do. It is a quiet day at my house as we celebrated as a family last weekend. 'On Ya'-ma

Good Christmas Morning Dad, I hope that you, Mary and Princess have a wonderful day and that you find somewhere open to eat Christmas dinner. That may be hard to do though. If it wasn't to far you all would be invited to eat here. I myself am not cooking. I can't stay on my feet long enough to do that. I have one of those spiral hams and everyone else is bringing a dish so we will have plenty to eat.
Hugs to you and Mary, Princess included. Love to you all. Helen

Merry Christmas from your West Tennessee family! If we only lived closer, we could all be together on this beautiful Christmas Day.
Pat, Shawn, and I will be celebrating at our house with Mavis and Keith coming over for lunch. We'll take a big old plate of food to Dorris. Love to you all, your niece, Karen
