Shipmates,

Well it's that time of year again. Time to post my favorite Submariner Christmas story.

Don't post much anymore since my wife's stroke two years ago but I check in to read
your postings. (She is permanently residing in a care facility In Charlottesville, VA - near
where our daughter works at the UofVA Med. Ctr.)

I'm wintering over here in Linda's and my Sweet Spot while conferring with the family about
what to let go, what to keep, and determine where it's all going.  But sorry to say much
of the old joy has gone. Good friends who drop by -  plus the frequent phonecons with Linda and
our family has helped keep me on track.

As James Brown put it in one of his songs, " Money won't harm you' but time will take you on".
Indeed time has taken us on.  But so far I'm doing OK and still maintaining a zero bubble.

So Merry Christmas to all on this board and remember to love those closest to you. Even the
best of journeys eventually come to an end.
