It's the first day of winter and seems more like the first day of spring.

The Company Holiday Party was very nice. I invited a friend, Wendy, who is also a widow. She used to work at Raritan so she knew all the people perhaps even better than I know them. Her husband had a heart attack and died at age 47 just shortly before Ted. She has a twelve-year-old son. Her portents moved back here from PA to help her and be near her.

The food was good and it was held at a nice place. It is about 5 minutes from my house so the drive was a short one. The production manager and I worked things out so we could all leave an hour and a half early. Some people live an hour’s drive away so we gave them plenty of time to go home, get ready, get their spouse or significant other and get back. The owner's daughter came in and wanted to sit with Wendy and me. Her husband joined us later. He is the IT man in the company so had to work later than the rest of us. We were joined by the owner, the Engineering VP, and his wife.

As I watched the young people dance, it reminded me of when I was that age and made me feel old. One doesn't notice the aging until you see the contrast. It was difficult to be in that setting without Ted.

I have a few things to finish up before the big day. Merry Christmas and God bless you and your families.

Karol - I am so pleased to read that you made contact with Wendy and she went to the party with you.

Len left this morning for Louisiana until Wednesday. His mother asked him to come down for Christmas and he felt he needed to.

Take care of yourself and that little furbaby friend of yours.
