It’s Christmas Eve and I’m munching on jalapeno chips as I write this. We started Christmas with what we hope to make into an annual event, an outdoor pre-Christmas party on our deck. With the fire pit going and the wine and beer flowing, snacks and my Red Neck Shrimp on the table we ate, laughed, and toasted. I might also mention I had mostly 50s and 60s music playing along with Christmas songs. Now everyone there couldn’t be called a teenager so some of the music my grandkids and my youngest daughter might not ever heard of. We all live in Preston Shores except for two very good friends, Rick and Julie, from Cambridge Shores.

First off I want to thank the Choctaw Event Center for one of the best shows last Friday night I have been to. The service from the Choctaw show staff was outstanding. If you even looked a little lost or confused they came to you or were easy to find.

After a short fishing trip Friday I came back to the house. Bite was slow — in fact it was non-existent. I had made up my mind I was just gonna stay in bed come 4 a.m. Saturday morning. I did and napped to 7. This was the latest I have gotten up since I don’t know when. I should have fished but the bed felt good.
