Judge Bubba’s Christmas Letters: 1995–Present

Length: 178 pages2 hours


Judge Bubba is now a semi-retired judge, living on a farm with his wife of 39 years, R.D., and their golden retriever, Sam Houston. Bubba and R.D. operate a horse boarding stable on their property. R.D. says sometimes Bubba has the brain of a gnat. But Bubba disagrees: If he's so stupid how'd he know the name of that insect is spelled with a silent g?

His annual Christmas letters chronicle the misadventures and travails of Judge Bubba, his family, friends and associates around his farm and his community where there is a constant battle with skunks, fish, criminal behavior, bodily dysfunction, errors in judgment, and even hostile cottonwood trees.

As Jimmy Jet says in the foreword: Judge Bubba’s response to the usual obnoxious Christmas letters could easily be titled “The Bubba Annual Report: What Could Go Wrong?” because go wrong it often does.

H. Sage Morgan was raised in Texas and earned undergraduate, graduate, and law degrees from schools there. In 1975, Sage moved to the Intermountain West, where he met R.D. in a cram course for the state bar exam. They married in 1976 and now each is a senior magistrate judge (i.e., mostly retired rent-a-judge).

Sage and R.D. have a rural lifestyle, living on their farm with their golden retriever Sam Houston, where they grow hay and board horses for other people.

They have one son, Earp, now an attorney and married to Katrina, as well as grandchildren Jack, Gage, Landry...and Rowan who has preceded all of the family to Heaven.
