Christmas Eve, Roswell, New Mexico, 1949

The true story.

Found linked on Pinterest, the Great Sargasso Sea of the Internet, where you can wander for hours amid images both sublime and stupid - or both.  No true source credited.  The original URL from when I ran across the picture (four years ago) is dead.  

Let me wish each and every one of you who stop by here a very Merry Christmas.  Hold close the ones you love.  Spend time with family or friends or both.  Remember the good service members deployed far from home.  If you're Military, LEO, or fire; EMT, Nurse or MD, and are one who must work while the rest of us celebrate, thank you. 


  1. Thank you, SiG! Wishing all the best to you and yours!

  2. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all as well!

  3. This morning I said a silent thank you and took a moment to appreciate the linemen and workers who are out here today, helping to restore power after the storm. Still about 100,000 in the dark, some with no heat and it’s 10 degrees out there today. They are giving up their Christmas, and missing their families. If I was out and about, I would thank them in person.

  4. Indeed, Merry CHRISTmas to all, and for all that is holy please STAY OFF THE ROADS because there's a lot of Stoopid drivers out there!!

    1. Most of them are currently down here in Florida!

  5. Merry Christmas SiG! (And I do love the image!)
