hot tub season///global warming is a hoax!!! x-mas pics

Rate: 25 Flag

   We are finally home safe and together, and relieved. Time to begin the countdown 'til next Christmas. Only 364 shopping days left!

   2009 kind of flew by didn't it? This time next week it'll be 2010. 2010!! I remember standing 4 or 5 feet from where I'm sitting right now 10 years ago at midnight... Decmber 31st, 1999. We were waiting on the great computer melt down that would cause the collapse of the universe. Midnight came... The year 2000 peeked in the window. The lights stayed on. The computer laughed at us and kept on working. So we raised a toast to the new millenium!!!

   Well, time flies doesn't it. The kid that was six years old then is now 16, and the world we worried about that last day of the last century is worse for wear. Or maybe it's not and it's just my optic rectosis flaring up. You know, optic rectosis? Where the optic nerve becomes attached to the rectum thereby giving us a shitty outlook. Yeah I know. HAHAHAHA.

   ***************************************************************

   Many of you know we had a little storm last night. TrigX went to his grandparents on Mom's side and ended up staying the night since it was unsafe to return home. Even today it took him an hour to drive the 10 miles from there to here.

   Here's some pics from yesterday and today.

 

 

 Above is TrigX and his Momma's Daddy. He's a retired union carpenter and Viet Nam war veteran of the U.S. Navy.

 TrigX and his girl cousins Amanda, Brandi, and Lisa.

 Gwampa with Lisa and Brandi (someone found the flash feature). I include this picture because I didn't even know Brandi was pregnant... again! Funny thing is I remember the day Brandi was born. Sheeez..

 Global warming is a myth! Otherwise this would be a picture of my palm tree grove. As it is we have a bunch of snow and it's 15F outside. But, these weather conditions make for perfect hot tubbing. And if your wondering... no, I'm not wearing shoes.

  Boy wonder in the tub just before sunset this evening.

   The colder it is outside the more enjoyable it is in the hot tub. Tiny crystals of ice and snow sprinkle down on your head as the fog rises off the 100 plus degree water. Hot tubbing in the snow on Christmas day. Sublime...

   On to Happy New Years.

And yes, we did make it to Mom's today to eat and hang out. We watched the new Star Trek movie too, which was good. Bet you're glad I'm not giving a review huh.
You got it made in the shade my man! What my Dad used to call "The Life of Riley". May the wind be always at your back and the sunshine on your shoulders!!
R~
I'm so glad it's over. Roll on 2010! A whole new decade - the Noughties are finally over.
I will never how long I kept laughing after 2000 when nothing happened. You have a great family, God bless, and Merry Christmas to you all.
PS The last picture of you in the hot tub reminds me of King Farouk (that's a compliment of the highest order).
Merry Christmas Trig. And I agree with you, Global Warming is a crock. Just a way to make more Government, more spending, more restrictions, and more control. Anyway, not really in the mood to talk about all that garbage. Just wanted to thank you for the Nyquil and diapers I recieved from Santa today with your name on it. Looking forward to putting both of them in use soon! LOL ~R~
I'm jealousing of your hot tub.
Merry Christmas and ty for sharing.
A hot bath in the snow! that´s a cool way to survive winter-time, I think. And as for global warming, these days the phenomenon is clearly located in Buenos Aires; it has been a veeeeery warm Christmas down here.
Kisses!
Marcela
Sheesh, what's all that white stuff?
Great pics. That hot tub is inviting, especially after the snow storm we had.
Nice robe.
2010...Bring it on! Any predictions? ;-)

GO SUNS!!!!

(Fuck, if I had been paying attention, I coulda been @ the game downtown).
Grant Hill ROCKS!

:-)
Now, I can enjoy a hot tub in this weather, but walking through it bare-footed? I'd have to insist you make me a path. Looks awesome! I'm glad X got to see the other half, and that you all made it to Grandma's. Just now, 815 pm, am I getting my driveway cleared. They've brought out a bobcat to get the job done. They've been working all day. Definitely the blizzard of at least a couple of decades here. Geez!
IN YOUR FACE, CLIPPERS!!!!

Hot tub in the snow.... Some day.... (Looks like I may have to move somewhere east...like PA...)

Looks like a great day for your family - thanks for sharing!
You must be having one crazzzay Christmas! Where's the eggnog?!
The tub is clearly inviting... How dangerous is the slippery walk out of the hot tub? I'm thinking serious shrinkage from tub to house.
scanner... "life of Riley"? Not really but I fake it well.

Natalie.. OK, I get it. Nought 7, nought 8, nought 9.

Sir Thoth. Yes, I am quite like King Farouk!

Eric.. it's cool, and hot... and cool

lionspride you are welcome:)

oldnewlefty... GOOD! Thanks man

Trudgy. quite welcome. Thanks for stopping by

Marcela bebeee. It's been unusually warm here too. I was kind of funnin' about the climate change "hoax". It' s happening. Question is I suppose exactly why....etcetera

Apache Savage... well, if it was cocaine we'd all be rich rich rich!

I have a hot tub, I have snow on the ground...so what am I doing in here? Oh yeah, it's raining. Not great tubbing weather so somewhat less than sublime here at the moment.

Glad you all had a great day and arrived home safe and sound.
I am glad to see you having some Christmas fun! I can't believe you didn't have shoes on....Brave or crazy!
Hey trig, I know that LONG walk to the hot tub in the snow. But well worth it. I love a winter night in the hot tub, hold up your glass and it freezes over. Trig X is adorable. Well enjoy friend and Merry.
Nice, um... nipples, dude.

Merry, merry.
How graphically candid...like the blue robe...

Phoenix RULES!

Back to you, Trig...
Oh STUFF!
I fell behind and don't have it in me to catch back except to tell Ms. Surly. You shouldn'ta dared me!

Group hug. Thanks. Tomorrow we return to civilian life. I don't want to hear another word about Christmas for a good while. OK? Ok
You got the life! Merry Christmas!
Jeeze Louise, it's been ten years! I've also been thinking about where I was New Years in 1999. Someone once told me that one thing about getting older is that time passes more quickly. And then I immediately thought how long it took to turn 21!

Great good thoughts to you honey......and next year for sure we're putting lights on our palm trees. (I actually put on long pants today because it got so cold here.....73?)

Tomorrow is yet another beach day here in San Blas, and we look forward to your visit.
My favorite time to get in the hot tub is in the snow! Looks enjoyable!R
Gack. It's been how long since rollover day? Cripes ...

Rated (for the hot tub and the great family photos)
Merry Christmas, trig. I'm jealousing big time over the hot tub.
Psst... I saw Trigs nips...
I'm glad xmas is over, too -- and I'm really looking forward to the 10's. Happy New Year Trig.
