Hello All,

Last week Pat arrived back home looking quite alert after leaving Italy nearly 24 hours earlier.

This photo is my electronic holiday greetings card for this year. Malcolm took the photo on Saturday night at a pre-Christmas celebration at Wintergreen Ski resort in the Blue Ridge Mountains above Waynesboro, Virginia. It comes with love and best wishes from us all.

We celebrated Christmas early because I will be in Panama on Christmas Day. I fly to Panama City on Wednesday and on Thursday take the local plane to Bocas del Toro. I will be returning to my island studio which, with its peace and quiet, has become my main place of work.

On Christmas morning, Malcolm and I will be with our friend Virginia Vasquez, visiting the home for the elderly, taking gifts of soap and shampoo. Later we will join a team of ex-patriots delivering meals to families known to be in particular need. It will not be a lonely day.

Randy receiving congratulations from Pat on his election as President of the Foundation.

Among the many visitors to my barn studio in Waynesboro this weekend were Randy and Ginny Myers. Two weeks ago, Randy completed a career in education, retiring as Executive Director of Administrative Services for Bellefontaine (Ohio) City Schools. His retirement coincided with his election as the new president of The P. Buckley Moss Foundation for Children's Education. Congratulations Randy and thank you! As president of our Foundation, Randy will again have a full-time job, the only difference is that this one is unpaid. Thank you Ginny for supporting Randy in his acceptance of this responsibility.

Thank you Bob Almond, retiring president of the Foundation. Bob gave us two years of outstanding leadership and would have served a second term, were it not for promotion to a demanding new appointment and a need to take care of an ailing parent. Bob will continue to serve on our board.

In 1991, the Tokyo Metropolitan Musuem held a exhibit of 55 of Pat's paintings and prints. The love of the Japanese for her work continues. These ladies visited Pat this past weekend at the Barn.

I will write to you next from the sweltering heat of Panama. I will probably be wishing I had never left this snow-covered Shenandoah Valley.
