Hi All: This past Xmas, I went to the Aerospace Xmas party and had a good time. At the party they had a Xmas raffel. Thank god I bought a lot of tickets. We all had a good time, good friendship, conversation, and food. Most all of us talked about our station and what we would do if we had the $$$s. After the meal, the raffel was held.
