Boxing Day

Molly and I hit the road for some Boxing Day festing, feasting, and revelling...  The first order of business was to tuck Shelly in for the day for some much needed rest and recovery.  Then we were on the road to Clinton to meet up with a few fine folks on the Macaulay side of the family tree.  It was to the Fish'N Game....

There was a super terrific meal waiting for everyone - a small group actually of about 15 people I suppose.  Anyhow we all had a few drinks and got caught up on the year's happenings.  Molly just hung out lazily for the better part of 2 hours before waking up and wanting to eat.  She got fed and changed, then she was ready to go for the rest of the day - Oh, and she got sick all over me....  Maybe a touch of too much to drink.

From Clinton we hit the road out to Molly's first visit to the Wright's - Boy was she at home there!  My associates Joel, Trista, and their two, as well as Bob and Sally of course, were home celebrating their own traditions and received the two of us with open arms - Molly was fast asleep.

We all hung out and rumbled about 2010, knowing what a great year it had been.  We all shared quite a lot - with our Rossland adventure, Port Dover'n in June, rat'n in July, and all the tires we threw...  So ya, Molly and I kicked around out there and by the time I had a drink, a left-over turkey sandwich, fed and changed Molly again, it was about 7:00 and time to hit the road to see what was shaking back in Goderich.

Joel does have a magical touch with babies as he had Molly smiling and nearly laughing for the first time.  Seriously - she was grinning from ear to ear and quite content to be in such capable arms.  
So it was another great day - Shelly got feeling better, but was still under the weather by the time we got home after eight o'clock or so....
