For more reasons than I care to remember I have never been the Christmassy sort. Something about the choreographed, ritualized on demand celebrations that never quite worked for me. But we still need to play along with all the fuss.

Thanks for all the cards folks . . .


  1. Well it all looks pleasantly Christmassy!

    Is it still very cold? I only ask because you appear to be keeping your testicles warm.

    The piano guys are brilliant!

    1. Its actually warmed up to balmy old 5 degrees below zero C. We've had about 4 days of sleet and freezing rain. So about 10 thousand homes have lost electricity due to accumulating ice and falling limbs taking down power lines. And as usual some poor sod ran his generator in the closed garage and managed to eliminate himself from the gene pool. As for my nuts, those made a retreat about 2 weeks ago when we had the first cold snap and wont reappear until some time after April.

    1. And to you as well Brian, Hope you and family are well. Thanks for stopping by.

  3. Merry Christmas from another curmudgeon.

  4. Merry Christmas! I'm aloud to like it for the next couple of years with my young girls to play with!
