Friday JohnKu – AKA – TGIF – and A Wish

Christmas Tree


One more Friday bites the dust. I know a lot of companies are letting their folks go early today so it could be that the week will be history by noon. (woo woo).

Here we are only two more shopping days until ChristmasΒ Day. I hope Y’all are ready and if not, I wish you the best in keeping your panic under control. I find margaritas are very useful in this regard.

Today’s JohnKu brings you a wish for a Happy Holiday season

A Wish by John W. Howell Β©2016

To those who I know,

Include those I never met. . .

Happiness to you.

  4. Have a wonderful holiday, John. Ah, I’m so glad Friday is here, but, unfortunately, our governor has chosen to be a Scrooge this year and not let folks off early. First time in a long, long time. Oh, well, we’re going camping this weekend (also, first time in a long time) and it will be nice to get off the grid for a while. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and yours! Cheers!
