Christmas at the Griswold, err, Cox Household

Clark: I dedicate this house to the Griswold family Christmas.

The Griswold's have nothing on the Cox's.

The house is currently filled with eight cats, two dogs, and the occasional relative.

We had a snowstorm last night. Our daughter-in-law got caught in it and had to stop for the night.

We were shoveling snow at seven a.m. to get the boy to the airport and get to my brother's graduation. Since we live in the south, there's not the immediate response by the road crews you find in the north. It took us about forty-five minutes to get out of our subdivision and if our chauffer (the hh) hadn't grown up in the midwest where snowstorms are prevelent I'm sure we'd still be sitting in the drive. But like riding a bike the winter driving techniques kicked in.

And so.....
The daughter-in-law made it to the airport.
The boy to the airport and
We made it to my bro's graduation.
All's well that ends well.
Happy Holidays.

Thanks, Cindy. Me too. My bro was one of the many displaced factory workers that ended up going back to school. We're very proud of him.
