    Sounded smart to me Blooie! Or did you prefer what I said in the ovation on the post about broadening your horizons, "To a broad with great horizons"? I mean we can go with either one, it all adds up to the same thing...you're a keeper!

    Dam, Blooie, what a wonderful life you and your family have a carved our for yourselves.

    I have no doubt that all of your traditions get passed down

    Hey, un-broadening my "horizon" is on the agenda for 2016 - sometime during that year! [​IMG] But I thank you for the kind words. I have good role models on here, that's for sure!

    You know, we did just that, Bert...we carved out a terrific life and I'm very proud of that. It's not easy raising three kids in a Navy family, so most of what we did was to give those little people continuity when we moved from place to place. Everything else had to be started anew - friends, activities, schools, neighbors - but if they had solid traditions that never changed no matter where we were, or no matter if Ken was home or not, they could adapt to the rest.

    I hope some of the traditions get passed down. The Charlie Brown tree has for sure, and in every single household in Ma and Dad's entire family. But mostly I hope they find and maintain their own traditions as their lives go on, understanding that having and sharing them is more important that what the actual traditions are.

    When faced with a difficult situation, one should first stop and think, "How would Blooie handle this?" And bet we can all find more sunshine in our lives.

    Or maybe she could start a "Dear Blooie" column thread?

    Did everyone make it safely through last night? DH & I had our own celebration here at home, that's my favorite way of doing new year's. Good dinner, a midnight toast and watching the neighbor's shoot off fireworks...nice evening!
