Toledo Talk

Merry Christmas

It's been fun to be back on Toledo's first-best-last discussion/mud-slinging/informational forum.

Will leave you with a poem my mother kept in her Bible, one of my favorites, especially as an older parent.

Of Christmas Past
(Barbara Yerbury Filan)

"I've done quite well, I must confess,
To ward off Christmas loneliness.
I've mailed surprises many miles
To start those special-morning smiles.
I've packed some food and clothes and toys
For less-than-lucky girls and boys.

I've sprinkled goodies on the snow
To feed small creatures we both know.
A service held by candlelight
Renewed my heart this winter night.
I've helped to decorate our tree;
The house glows warm for you and me.

With you beside me lost in sleep,
My life is full, my love runs deep.
Yet memory stirs a dream long gone;
I listen this December dawn
For childish whispers on the stair,
For tiny steps no longer there."---

Merry Christmas to all.

Is it too much to ask people to simply wait a few hours after drinking to go out driving in this sort of weather and traffic?

Is it too much to simply ask people to not drink in drive in any kind of weather or traffic? Rule of thumb used to be 1/2 hour per ounce of alcohol. 1 beer, 1 shot, 1 glass of wine.
