The quote was Dale ruminating on how Valerie can embarrass him.

Three men in a bubble is in Oregon Way.

I'll have to verify this, but I THINK today's quote is Dale's thoughts about following Paul's advice to engage Valerie in conversation (MEC).

Confirmed!!  Funny, I can barely remember what day of the week it is, but some of these FCR quotes apparently have set up permanent residence in my brain.  

I'm not complaining, mind you.  In fact, I'm pretty happy about it.   Very Happy

Trivia # 4 - I think this refers to our beloved Yak Whompers.

Merry Christmas to all the mods who keep the railroad running all year long.

Love to you all.

I have a feeling (because of some of the pictures I've seen in various posts for Oregon Way) that this is something I'll be able to answer after I read the book tomorrow.

Ampersands and "the root of all things good ______ " are going to take some digging (Trish's Tricky Trivia is going out with a bang).

I found one reference to "the root of all things good" - but the sentence ended there.  It was something Tom thought about Jake in Will You Walk A Little Faster, but it seems like the trivia question is asking for words that follow.  

OH - I get it.  EU - the Greek root

a classical education came back to me in that one Greek root. Eu. The root of all things good. 



Tom's thoughts.

Merry Christmas! Thanks to Rolf & Ranger always and ever, as well as all of you who keep the fires in the hearth, the soup on the stove, the cattle and sheep in fine fetter, clean sheets, warm welcomes and all the things that make this board somewhere I know I can always come "home" to.

Much love to you all.

I didn't know Santa was so opposed to a little fun kidnapping! Does he think that bribery and fraud are wrong too?

The video is sweet.

And the Advent Calendar has been a great joy. Thank you thank you thank you
