Home For the Holidays


Number One Son is the Marine on the left.

No, I didn’t get back to Iowa for the holiday break.  Weather, health, and work prevented that.  But my son the Marine made it home for a two week leave.  And, since my wife is still a dedicated Jehovah’s Witness, we still don’t celebrate the Christmas holiday.  But it is nice to be home with family.


We did get to the movies last night, and we did get to see Rogue One in 3-D.


We loved the movie.  It made me cry.  I will probably also cry every time I re-watch it from here to infinity… and beyond.  But this is not a movie review post.  I will hold onto that idea for later.  This was about family time together.  It was a very good time.
