The Thanksgiving festivities looked fun! Unfortunately, Ben, Lilyana and I spent most of our Thanksgiving day curled up on the couch with books, blankets and snackss all because of a "this must be real labor" scare...unfortunately, no baby that day! Love that Melissa and I *had* the same due date...now it's a race to see who has their baby first! ;D

Thanks for the lovely Christmas card (mine is on its way to you, along with my annual Christmas poem). I am most happy to say that your three children all inherited the 'good looks gene' from Melissa. (Whew!) Just kidding of course (you have always been a handsome lad). Your home appears remote but enchanting in every respect. I did not see a piano in any of the pics, and sincerely hope that you continue to pound the ivories. I am now 81 years old, and doing about as well as can be expected for a person my age. I continue to paint, and sculpt, for my own pleasure, and retain all that I do in my own home, sending replaced works out to my children, so that when I visit them I visit past works as well, because they too are like children to me. I have adopted a Hispanic grand daughter Jasmin (now age 26), who was mentored by my daughter when she as a Probation Officer stationed at Daurte High School 9 years ago. Jasmin came from a troubled home, with two brothers sent back to Mexico for life, a younger brother in jail for life having committed murder, and a younger sister who is a prostitute. Jasmin graduated from Cal State University Los Angeles, with a degree in Criminal Justice, and is now a Probation Officer. She is drop dead gorgeous, and has agreed to sit for a bronze bust. I will have to be at my very best. You are a true family man, and I would like to close with a quote from Ben Franklin, who said,"Does thou love life? Then do not squander time, for that's what life is made of!" Marsha and I wish you and yours a most joyful Christmas, and a blessed New Year. Ed
