What a happy Christmas when you have family and friends! I spent Christmas
Eve and Christmas Day in Waynesboro, Virginia, and everyone congregated
at my daughter Ginny's house. The only ones missing were my son Chris
and his family and my daughter Mary Donnelly and her family, but I got
to see the Donnelly's on Sunday. My daughter Becky and her family are
over from Italy, and it was so nice to be with them for Christmas again.

Moss, Jack's wife Malone, me, my daughter Patty, and Patty's friend
Mary Morgan. Front row, L. to R.: My granddaughter Michela Ghezzi, my
grandson Picco Gabellieri, my son-in-law Roberto Ghezzi, family dog
Winny Gabellieri, my granddaughter Sofia Ghezzi, my daughter Becky Ghezzi,
my granddaughter Chiara Gabellieri, my daughter Ginny, and Ginny's husband
Corrado Gabellieri behind her.
Becky, Roberto, Sofia, Michela, and I braved the snow Sunday and drove
over to Radford to Mary's house. I don't think it snowed as much in
the western part of the state as it did on the coast. I understand Mathews
got around eight inches!

Becky and her family and I left Mary's Monday and started driving to
St. Petersburg, Florida. We arrived safely in the wee hours of Tuesday
morning, but we passed lots of accidents along the way. It snowed all
the way down to Savannah, Georgia!
I've had my fix of snow for the year, and now I'm looking forward to
getting settled in my St. Petersburg studio for the winter.
A happy New Year to all!
