Buffett is Christmas Day Sensation
65 years ago yesterday. Christmas Day… Jimmy Buffett was born. A Christmas doesn’t go by when I don’t hear the Christmas CD by Buffett going in my wife’s SUV. She absolutely loves Buffett. Run, Run Rodulf… Jimmy hasn’t had a hit record in 20 years and he is worth over 400 million. Think about that. This guy is a marketing genius. Great little article on Jimmy here. Following family tradition since 1985 and meeting everyone Christmas Eve day for lunch and last minute shopping. For 30+ years we have met at Shuckers Sports Bar in the Galleria Mall but last year it closed… SO we re-located to The Woodlands this year for dinner at Brio. Christmas has come and gone. The hot weather came on Christmas morning and was gone by mid-afternoon. We have been curled up by the fire all day. Sitting in church on Christmas Eve at Wildwood United Methodist really put me in the Holiday mood. It was by far the best service I have ever sat through. Sitting in my new living room with Trena’s family watching Carmen (who is living in Maryland) on the flat screen tv courtesy of SKYPE, watching my two teenager daughters dance around with Wrapping bows on their heads…. perfection Sitting fire-side Christmas morning drinking coffee and watching my wife open her stocking, girls laughing, dog getting into the mess…. perfection Eating dinner made by my mother, sitting at the famous Bowie dining room table, listening to the cousins laughing in the other room at the “kids table” then on to the present opening that takes hours!! Looking over at my mom and dad realizing that we are lucky people… perfection Today…. sitting in my new study typing this article, Brooke off at friends house doing what 12 year old girls do… Wife walking around in socks enjoying her house… Rebecca playing her new $800 Taylor guitar and basically teaching herself new songs in one day… Dog curled up everywhere I go… perfection May peace be with you and your family. Happy Holidays.
