Would you?

After salting the walks, driveway, and alley
twice during our marathon freezing rain, we
decided to go out to eat on our day.

We chose Rudy’s on Elmore because we both
thought Mexican food would be great, and it

The talk got around to the claim that I am
a hard person to buy a gift for because when
asked what I want the reply is “whatever”.

Which got me thinking that there is something
I would enjoy, but doubt I’ll ever see. So we
have a proposition for all to ponder.


It won’t cost you penny, it won’t hurt, and
you won’t break a sweat, but we sincerely hope
you consider it.

There are no rules or hidden agendas, just a
wish that we could see such a thing happen
once in our lifetime.

On this upcoming Christmas Day, or December
25th if you are of a different faith or aren’t
religious, we would really like to see
everyone just try to get along.

For one day of the year let’s try to put
aside our prejudices, political leanings,
religion or lack thereof, and just play nice.

Let’s forget about race, creed, color, or net
worth. Will you try it with us for one day?

We’re only talking 1/365th of a year and we
believe the world would be a better place to
live in if we would just try it.

Some may wonder why we’re being nice or what
we have up our sleeve, but it should be an
enjoyable experience.

On December 26th we could go right back to
the way we normally are.

So we ask that you please, at least think
about it. Who knows? The act of being kind
one to one another may blossom into something
truly beautiful to behold.
Comments are always welcome.

    Well… At least this year, no rocket scientist in a flashy car asked you if you just shoveled the alleyway (…yet).

    well said.

    lol, true. This post reflects my personality, people who ask me the obvious get to see my attitude.

    While I was thinking about it, my neighbor punched me in the face.

  5. cruisin2 says:

    sounds like you need a new neighbor. Or perhaps he hasn’t read this yet?

    I’ll print this and take it to him after I soak it in bacon. That might work.

    All kidding aside tho, Merry Christmas to you and Mrs. Cruiser.
