Kongo Buys A Tree

Kongo’s youngest son and daughter-in-law arrived from Boston yesterday and after dropping their bags the expanding troop heads off for the annual Christmas Tree Hunt at the Kiwanis lot a few miles from Kongo’s house.  The trees here are always nice and the proceeds go to a good cause.  This year Emily gets to pick out the tree because she told this mournful story about how her family has a fake tree each year and she can’t ever remember actually picking out a tree that somebody else cut down for her.  Scotch Pine or Blue Spruce?  So many decisions.

Rockin’ Salvation

Kongo is visiting New York City for a long weekend and came across this musical Salvation Army duo at Rockefeller Center in Midtown. Their animated singing to a series of classic Christmas carols brought lots of cheer to the massive crowds visiting the center to see the newly lit Christmas Tree. Be sure to read on and see the short video clip of these guys.

The Doll House

An earlier post tells the background story behind The Doll House.  Click the “Related articles” link below.  The grand girls loved it. Good times had by all.  Today they want to take Missy and Kongo to the zoo!  Kongo’s favorite pastime. Travel safe.  Have fun.  Enjoy the holidays!

Kongo Gets Surprised

Faithful readers will know that Kongo is an unabashed fan of Delta Airlines. He is a charter Diamond member, flies about 200,000 miles a year with them, is a Million Miler, and has been pinned. Kongo has also made many friends with Delta flight attendants. Like he’s doing now, Kongo frequently posts to his blog from 35,000 feet somewhere over the United States (thank you Gogo inflight WIFI).
