Well it's my quiet time of Christmas day,

The rest of the family have gone to church and I'll start cooking the Christmas roast soon.

I love this part of my day, it gives me a chance to reflect on my year, and what a year it was !!

I was reunited with my kids after a 10 year absence as their father, riffs were mended, (some still are being). My daughter joined the air force as a trainee fighter pilot (and finished first at stage 1 of training), my son has been selected to go to Canada for a month as a youth leader later in the year.

My ex wife and I are on friendly terms again, and gets on really well with Mrs C.

After countless operations my sister seems to be in good health, still wheelchair bound, but finally able to stand for short periods of time (Way to go sis).

Having nearly lost my mother to a rather nasty lung infection, we are grateful that she is still with us.

As for you guys ATS, I celebrate 10 years as a member next month, this year you've been there for me when times got rough, supported me and made me laugh so much I can't count the times.

My heartfelt thanks

We've made avatars galore and had great fun doing so. There are those of you that shared your troubles with me, we thought and occasionally cried together,we talked long and we walked a few tough roads, but we were strong enough to reach the end together. Well done to each and every one of you (You know who you are)

My thanks for your trust in me.

I'm truly a blessed man, and a blessed member of ATS so here's to many more Christmases together

Before I go and start the hectic part of my day, I'd like to raise a toast to the members that passed away this year, you will be sorely missed guys and thanks for the times we all shared.

So, "A toast to absent friends"

Cody

Yakisoba and corona lite Yiikes!! if you lived in my city I'd have you over man.


Sisig and San Miguel actually and it looks great to me right now. But not what I'll be having. I 'm dealing with other issues in the states and can't swallow that. Can't swallow much of anyhing to be honest. I'm going through throat cancer treatment. Haha, I might consider a Corona but doubtful.

oooohhhh, Red Stripe add that to the list of must haves


I'll beat this, I have to. I have someone that I really want to spend a lot of time with and there are plenty of these left to be seen where she is. Take care my friend.

A Happy and peaceful Christmas to all at ATS and esp to the dear friends I have made here that grew into the real world.

A Toast!

P.s. Cody...... there are very few things in the world that aren't improved by adding minions

Yes, to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free
Silhouetted by the sea, circled by the circus sands
With all memory and fate driven deep beneath the waves
Let me forget about today until tomorrow.
