Well, I haven’t any news, but that we were on a cruise...oh yeah baby! First one ever... and so, the Bob/Darcy/Charly Gra­ham fam­ily boarded the Dis­ney Fan­tasy...Port Canaveral De­cem­ber 10-17 and it was THE trip of a life­time! We left -27 Cal­gary temps for sunny Florida +27 and it was glo­ri­ous! Dr. Gra­ham signed up for a short med­i­cal CBT course on the ship and with the “aqua­duck” wa­ter­slide, fan­tas­tic live shows, col­or­ful Christ­massy at­mos­phere, is­land port stops (where we mostly stayed on to en­joy the im­mac­u­late, less busy ship) and over-the-top friendly ser­vice...we had a blast! We NEVER go away in De­cem­ber...al­ways so in­volved ev­ery sea­son work­ing, di­rect­ing/run­ning Christ­mas pro­grams, host­ing and go­ing to par­ties, ban­quets, do­ing mu­sic things, con­certs and the like. But, this year we de­cided to break­away ... good de­ci­sion! And as I write on this Mon­day morn­ing ... rested, re­laxed and re­ju­ve­nated ... happy to say that we ar­rived safely back home to a re­mark­ably warmer Al­berta win­ter than when we left and, we still have a whole won­der­ful week to en­joy the pre-Christ­mas magic...love it!

So, as you read, there are ac­tu­ally only 4 more sleeps ‘til Christ­mas and this is my last write-up be­fore this won­drous, grab-onto-and-hold-on-to, mirac­u­lous, life-chang­ing, mag­i­cal time and I so wanted to leave you with words to a song. This is one of my fa­vorites from The Mup­pet Christ­mas Carol Movie. “There’s magic in the air this evening, magic in the air. The world is at its best you know, when peo­ple love and care. The prom­ise of ex­cite­ment is one the night will keep, af­ter all there’s only one more sleep ‘til Christ­mas. There’s some­thing in the wind to­day, that’s good for ev­ery­one. Yes, faith is in our hearts to­day, we’re shin­ing like the sun. And ev­ery­one can feel it, the feel­ing’s run­ning deep, af­ter all there’s only one more sleep ‘til Christ­mas... Day”.

And so there you go...gather close, have fun, en­joy the in­doors and out­doors...go skat­ing, sled­ding or snow­mo­bil­ing...watch movies, sing songs, play games...laugh, love, eat drink and be merry! Truly...“Its the most won­der­ful time of the year”! And in this great North Amer­i­can con­ti­nent, grounded and in­spired with Chris­tian lib­erty and free­dom, I echo the proud sea­sonal sen­ti­ments of the new Amer­i­can Pres­i­dent Elect Mr. Don­ald J. Trump and wish you all a Very...Merry...Christ­mas and, God bless us ev­ery­one! Cheers!
