December 2024-New Years Day 2025
(Lots of pictures, not many words, just a quick cruise around Richmond to see how some of these guys spent the holidays... )
"I've been thinking about Christmas," Kyle said "Instead of trying to figure out which of the kids to spend it with this year, why not invite all of them and their families here?".
"All of them? Can we even fit that many people in the house?"
"What, its only... 24 people... 25 including Cory's daughter. And most of them are small children. It'll be fun."
"Come on, its been a hell of a year. We should do something special, just to celebrate the fact that it's over."
"But they might have their own plans. I know Cory wants to spend Christmas with his parents, and - "
"So we'll have Christmas the week before Christmas. The children will get a kick out of doing it twice. Admit it, you love the idea."
"So that means we're doing it?"
"Jeff... you... how?" Andrew stammered.
"Uh... Do you guys know each other?" Jeff asked.
"I was just going to ask the same thing," said Samantha.
"We met last night, when I arrived," Jeff said.
Jeff nodded. "I wasn't sure whether to reply or not. But then it was Christmas... and I was thinking about last year... I just wanted to see you again."
Andrew shook Jeff's arm to get his attention again. "Wait, is she the one you were telling me about last night?!"
Jeff nodded again.
"But... " He looked from Jeff to Samantha, then back again. "But last night you said you were here to find your girlfriend."
