We had Dale for Christmas

December 29th, 2009 · 4 Comments

My brother Dale come out to Arizona from Buffalo to spend Christmas with his Arizona relatives. It was great having him here for a few days.

He came out a couple of months ago for the first time in about 40 years, and that was really special. But it was a short visit with lots of relatives around to share his time and non-stop “getting acquainted”. This visit was more relaxed, and we even got to take a 5-mile geocaching hike on South Mountain (Dale, Donna and I). We found about 6-7 caches and had a good, tiring hike.

We went to see the new Sherlock Holmes movie yesterday, ate dinner with Mom, and just generally enjoyed each other’s company.

I put him on a plane this morning, and it’s back to Buffalo with a high predicted today of 17F. (Phoenix is in the 60s.) I hope we’ll get to see each again soon, either here in Arizona or back in New York (in the summer, of course!).

    It sure sounds like you all had a great time. I wish we could have been there too, but our obligation is to our kids and grandkids at this time of year. We hope to be able to spend more time with Dale as well, perhaps later this year.

    Happy New Year, everyone!

    When I read your title to this post, I can’t help but wonder “Was he tasty?”

    Very tender, except for one drumstick, which had a metal rod running through it.

    You must be getting hungry. You haven’t posted for a month. After you had Dale for Christmas, haven’t you eaten since?
