2017 December One More Thing

Holiday Shopping Craze

People fall in line
lots of things are a-flying
Li’l Luke Skywalker.

Waited for a year
Bargain hunters on the loose
Beanie baby dolls.

It’s holiday craze
The day after Thanksgiving
Tickle me Elmo.

What’s the fad this year?
Fingerling Glitter Monkeys?
Or Roaring Tyler?

Let the child decide.
But what about you, yes you?
What is your gizmo?

Peter Nunez
"Fray Peter" heeded the call to the priesthood right after high school. Upon completion of his temporary vows of poverty, chastity and obedience in the Order of Preachers (Dominicans), he realized he had a different calling and so he ventured out into the world. At first, he made a lot of mistakes from which he learned. In 1992, he joined his wife Alicia in the U.S. They were blessed with two fine sons, Stephen and Michael and “adopted” two wonderful daughters Pau and Joni. From them, he has 4 grandchildren. He started his professional life in the U.S. as a part-time teller and after 6 years was promoted to Branch Manager of the Bank of New York in their two branches in New Jersey. He also joined the North Fork Bank as Branch Manager with the title of Assistant Vice-President. He was a member of the National Association of Securities Dealers (NASD) which authorized him to sell various investment products. As a side hustle, Peter is working on his photography skills and has co-founded "The Traveling Chefs." Peter enjoys reading, writing, cooking, travel, golf, photography and triathlon.
