**Holiday Greetings

Wishing you a warm and fuzzy holiday season.

Here are a few greetings from the passengers of the Jolly Swag to me and all of us.

Cookies from Karen in Minnesota

Christmas lights on an adobe hacienda in Santa Fe

From Linda somewhere in the Southwest desert

In Celtic holiday garb, David and Angel in the San Francisco Bay Area

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from us devout heathens in Madrid, the Christmas Capital of New Mexico. 
Peter and Annette Bruso, Old Boarding House Mercantile General Store


From AL in Pensacola

And from Ben and Priscilla in San Antonio, a house worth driving by

    Christmas everywhere- and after tomorrow, it will all be gone. Hope you enjoyed your cookies! I have spent 2 days in the kitchen whipping up all the goodies..I’ll crash tomorrow night. Merriest of Christmases, Al.

    Wherever you are, Al, and whatever you are celebrating, I send you warm holiday greetings. Keep up your blog. Your writing continues to improve.

    What different ways people celebrate Christmas! For some, Christmas will be over on Monday. For others, like myself, the Christmas season starts tomorrow and runs for two more weeks.

    Also, Happy Hanukkah!

    And Merry Christmas to you Al. May the coming year be filled with travel surprises, new friends, lots of laughter and may all your winds be tail ones.

    Hi Al,
    Sorry we couldn’t really talk yesterday. Being the chief cook and bottle washer at our party makes it hard to talk. Please call again. We missed you at the party and if you are ever in the area on Xmas eve please come.

    Your Xmas cards above were great.

    Love, Barbara

    Happy Holidays Al from one adventurer to another. May your coming year hold good times, fascinating people and magical words. You have become a superb writer. Thanks for keeping me in your loop.

      Hope your Christmas was merry and bright. Your blog as certainly addded some pizazz to the past year for a lot of people, including me. Wishing you a happy, healthy, adventure filled New Year (assuming you are still interested in more adventures).
      Best! Sheri

    Happy Holidays Al—all is bright in southern MD. I think of your blog as brain food-delicious.

  8. Dave L says:

    Happy Holidays Al. Your Blog stimulates my thinking – keeps those neurons from leaning on their shovels – and thank you for that. Much better than Sudoku. I know you are having the time of your life ’cause you confessed it and I can’t think of anything better than to wish you a keep-at-it.

    About 40 degrees here and as dry as a decent martini.

  9. Have a happy day of peace, joy, and fulfillment, Al.

    Happy belated Chanukah and best wishes for the New Year and your ongoing adventures.

    Looking forward to hearing about the next year on the road and about the book you’ll be putting together about the first year!

  12. MaryAnne says:

    Happy Chanuka to you, Al ,and hope you have the warmest of Holiday Seasons.
    You’ve prompted me to be more aware of my location, surroundings, geography, topography and especially the people as I wander around in my little Cambria visiting places I’ve never been.
    I am looking forward to more as you progress in your own travels and to the ultimate book.
    Best wishes for a wonderful and prosperous 2012. The pics are great, Thank you all.
