And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.
And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.

For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,

Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

– – Luke 2: 8-14

To my little circle of fellow port-swillers, here’s a bumper of cheer to all of you:  May your Christmas be full of peace and joy and may your New Year be one of hope and happiness!

God bless you all!!



P.S. TPSAYE will return to regular posting after the holidays, once we wake up from our post-roast beef coma.

Sorry for the lack of posting, friends.

While last week’s blizzard did not cause me too many problems other than delaying my flight back from Iowa by a couple hours Friday evening, Snow Miser nonetheless caught up with us by causing the Robbo Family furnace to give up the Ghost yesterday morning.  Of course the replacement of the part that went has to be ordered, and of course it’s going to be a few days before they can get out and install it.  It is about 25 degrees outside right now and not much better inside.

Given that we were planning to set out for Florida for Christmas tomorrow anyway, we decided we would leave a day early and spend an extra night on the road.  It is my sincerest wish, having been plunged into the depths of winter the past four or five days, to come back after the New Year with a sunburn.

Anyhoo, we’re off in a little while and I doubt very seriously if I’ll be able to either read or write any posties until we return.  Stay tuned though, my fellow port swillers, because I have much to tell you that I believe you will find very amusing indeed.
