Robert and I LOVE sending out Christmas Cards! We feel the practice (slowly disappearing?) is a way to pass along a little cordial and heartfelt “Soul of the Season.”
Our card for 2021. Here, we’re sending it to you!
Happiest of Holidays!
What’s the backstory for this year’s card, you ask? Well, I AM super holiday busy (it IS Christmas Eve you know) but if you absolutely insist, I’ll take the time from singing “The Twelve Days of Christmas” to Robert, and explain.
I get the disturbing impression Robert’s just not that into the song anyway. He hasn’t blinked since the first time I sang the verse about the eight maids a milking—which I keep messing up, so of course have to start over from the beginning.
Anyway, back in September, with the pandemic seeming to ease up a bit, we ventured out on our first you-gotta-get-on-an-airplane-to-get-there trip. We spent a gloriously laidback and uneventful week in the Poconos, then hopped over to Manhattan for another week. (Where were all the people?!)
One day we booked a guided tour of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, led by guide extraordinaire Rob …
What fun we had! And because of Rob, how much we re-appreciated our diverse nation.
When we meandered to the front of Lady Liberty, Rob suddenly threw himself on the ground (!) exclaiming, “I take the best pictures this way.”
And he was right!
Later, walking around Times Square, Robert found Statues of Liberty at every corner.
NOEL! from NEAL & ROBERT
JOYFUL CHRISTMAS 2021 and YES, JUSTICE FOR ALL!
