Have a nice Christmas?

Did everyone have a good Christmas? We had our normal get together, normal as in LOUD! With eight brothers and sisters of which seven were present, as were their spouses, their children, their grandchildren, their great grandchildren . . . did I mention that it was very LOUD!!? Because of my medical conditions and the fact that the good Lord deemed my wife and I to be lucky, er. . childless,  I’m a bit sensitive to loud noises so only remained for a couple of hours. The earache told me it was time to go home! The next morning (Christmas Day), my ear was still hurting, and still is through today. Although it is getting better. With a little peace and quiet in our own home, I expect to have a complete recovery very soon.

Meanwhile I hope everyone enjoyed seeing and visiting their families and that all got what they were hoping for under the Christmas Tree from ol’ St. Nick. At sixty years of age, it amazes me more each year at the speed in which each year passes. Enjoy them fully while you can.

Did you happen to notice that the Christmas commercials started on the third of November this year? Last year it was November sixteenth. Remember when they used to not start their crass commercialism until after Thanksgiving? And they wonder why people don’t “get into the spirit” like they used to. Oh well! Let me be the first to wish you all a very Merry Christmas, for next year! By the way, only three-hundred and sixty-four shopping days until Christmas!
