I write to you to bring Christmas greetings on this day of our Lord December 25th, 2008. Our privations continue. We have had to put aside our warm clothes for t-shirts and sandals, and J has been forced to put on shorts rather than proper trousers. Today, we will venture forth to the beach, after our meagre Christmas dinner of steak and vegetables cooked over an open fire. I hope that all of my friends are well and prospering in the proper cold of late December.
(I think J could manage to talk me into this every year. We’re in Charleston, SC for the holiday. It’s 77 here today. Wish you were here!)
