AND THE WINNER IS...
My nephew, Dimes McDropperson, (alias of course) insists that his picture win. I can't recall that this was a contest, but I have to agree that his 'entry' is touching. I'm sure you feel the same. So many of our loved ones are away from home at a time when we should be sharing love, food, and the reason for the season. "Dimes" is working for a private contractor abroad, but that doesn't lessen the miles between him and his family. He's sharing the same accommodations as the military men, and if you don't believe me, I can send you a picture of the metal container he lives in. :)
These greetings come to you from Iraq via Adam. I hope you'll all visit his blog (The Ballad of Dimes McDropperson) and wish him a happy holiday season. He's too far from home and his mother this Christmas, and we all miss him. Well...maybe not all of us, but the important ones. *winking at Adam*
