I have spent the last few days with my HIndu family in Queens. Oddly they celebrate Christmas, in a traditional way. I thought I had a dream of my daughter pestering me in my sleep that she wants an XBox 360. Apparently it was no dream, but I was so tired I thought it was. I got the item this morning.
I have spent the last few days giving my own special Christmas gifts to families in need. There were two families in my office crying about the best Christmas ever. Sometimes we need to do a little exta to kick it through the uprights. In one case I told the lawyer to write a brief, but the authority said no. I wrote my own brief to our experts and kicked a 53 yarder dead center with room to spare. It isn't much really, but seeing the family so happy made the three hours of work worth it.
I will be on line more often when I work the kinks out of my new computer.
On a normal Christmas I hear thank you officer for the best Christmas ever at least once a year.
I heard it four times this year. Either means I had a good year or delusions of grandeur. Those moments are everything to this officer.
