To All My Liberal Friends:
Please accept with no obligation, implied or implicit, my best wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low-stress, non-addictive, gender-neutral celebration of the winter solstice holiday, practiced within the most enjoyable traditions of the religious or secular practices of your choice, with respect for the religious/secular persuasion and/or traditions of all others, or their choice not to practice religious or secular traditions at all.
I also wish you a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling and medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the generally accepted calendar year, but not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions to society have helped make America great. Not to imply that America is necessarily greater than any other country nor the only America in the Western Hemisphere. Also, this wish is made without regard to the race, creed, color, age, physical ability, religious faith or sexual preference of the wish.

I can’t help but love life. Sitting here on a picnic table with a F15 behind me, another one in front of me and yeah another one just over there. You are asking yourself “Just where were you again”. Having a Christmas “Fooder” as they call it. A“Fooder” is when this group of people gets together in the hanger and let down just a little. They let down from the intense stress of Protecting our Freedoms. This group is the Portland Air National Guard. They are the 142ndFighter Wing, and the 123rd Fighter Squadron, otherwise known as the Redhawks. These people are some of the most polite and professional folks I have ever met. And, it’s not just because I am a face they do not recognize. Or, should I say one they have seen but don’t see often.
Today’s “Fooder” all prepared by the Fighter Wing, included Braised Beef, Caesar Salad, some kind of Green Beans with something, and an assortment of cheeses, celery, carrots all the things to make one happy. Dessert was just as fun and with the season of course what you’d expect Pumpkin pie and whipped cream.
