It's that time of year again, and the DW and myself are booked on the Argosy cruises "Christmas Ships". We really enjoy it and it's our holiday tradition. I blew it by waiting too long to get on the lead ship, that's the boat that has the choir on it. Alas we'll be on one of the follow boats which has it's good side,cuz we'll be closer to all the decked out private Christmas Armada boats that trail the Argosy fleet. Some of those folks really go all out decorating their vessels like the one pictured here from last year. This year I have a better camera so I hope to get some nicer shots, wish me luck while I wish you a Merry Christmas!!!

Lest we ever forget. These photos were taken 2 months ago when the DW and I were at the Pearl Harbor Memorial. It was very sobering and a place every American should visit.No speaking above a whisper is allowed out of respect for the thousand plus men who died there that day. Their names are engraved in stone. There is also globs of oil that still come to the surface every few seconds as a testament to the men and ships entombed there in the harbor.America isn't perfect, but she's my country and I love it.Pray for her, cuz the attack upon us now is not with planes, guns or torpedos and we need all hands on deck. Peace Out.
America isn't perfect, but it's my country and I love it.

This amazing species of bird has learned that if they feed in a field of beans a week before the annual migration, they can save enormous amounts of energy gliding instead of all that tiresome flapping. Ahh yes, nature at it's finest.
