This year, my family celebrated two Christmases. Dave was in Turkey, so he wasn't around for first Christmas. He brought me and Jodi back a great killim, a tradition in Turkey that really ties the room together. In short: this killim is for mothers, and children.
He also brought us back some Christmas tree ornaments, and he gave me a killer mersham pipe. Yep that's a labrador head, mouth closed gently around a duck. A great memorial to our late black lab, Papalo. Welcome home Dave and Merry Christmas.
