'18/#32 Feliz Navidad

This is my Merry Christmas blog from the Rio Grande Valley. it is that time of year when everyone is getting into the spirit of the holiday. While some the spirits of the holiday may be getting into them (LOL). Anyway the office in the park is overflowing with decorations and the rest of the building is decorated with Christmas trees, lights, and garland. Christmas dinner in the hall is coming together nicely and those of us who want a quieter celebration are getting things ready for our holiday meal at home.

Last week we drove down to Hidalgo to see the Annual Festival of Lights put on by the city and local businesses. The stores are all dressed up and Christmas music is playing everywhere. The crowds haven't been too bad. It is just the usual Winter Texan congestion just like the Snow Bird situation in Florida.

In our home we have put up our flat Christmas tree, strung some garland with a number of ornaments, and have several music emitting decorations and animated items. we are starting to watch all the Christmas shows we have saved to our DVR and of course there is Christmas music playing. Sometimes Mary even joins in and when she belts them out....well lets say she should keep her day job. I love her and wouldn't dream of stopping her but sometime I have to find ways to deal with the excess (ahem) noise.

We have decided that on Christmas eve to go to the office and make sure all the last minute packages that show up get delivered to the residents in the park. It is not something that we have to do, but in the spirit of Christmas and as retired postal workers we feel it will be our contribution to making sure that everyone has a Merry Christmas.

Well I am going to end this blog now. We are volunteering in concessions for tonight's dance so we have to eat a little early. This may or may not be my last blog before Christmas so we are sending out our Merry Christmas wish to everyone now from our home in Pharr TX because......

Home is where we park it,
Frank and Mary
