Christmas Magic at Merchants Crossing

 Wednesday, December 23, 1998

Do I believe in magic? Do I believe in Christmas? Yes, you can bet on it! All magic is not an illusion. Magic is something that could happen in an instant. It could be that magic moment when two people meet or when kindred souls mingle. Or when their thoughts become entwined.

An experience shared, a touch, a kiss... a moment of bliss. That's magic!

When a child is born, when you hear it cry, a father's delight and a mother's sigh. That's magic!

When you look around and suddenly you've found, that friend, you thought, you had lost. That's magic!

When you are greeted with a wink or a smile, it makes all those little things worthwhile, That's magic!

  When there is peace and harmony and no acrimony! That's magic!


One of the most magical places on earth is here... in Englewood. Where the weather is grand and everyone gives a helping hand.

Just think back to all the benefits that YOU have contributed to. That's magic!

When everyday, there is an event and some I had to miss, I won't boast....I tried to cover most!

Everywhere I went, thanks to you, there was magic. Combining it with Christmas is....Wishing all of you a Very Happy Christmas Magic Holiday. Especially for Dennis, w2gp. Magie, my web site manager. Micki, Chris, Kevin for giving me this opportunity, your encouragement and support. My family; and friends, Carol, Charlie, Sandy, Al, Rosemary, Jerry and I don't have enough space to name all of you.
