1. Merry Christmas to you and yours. This place has been a sorely needed refuge all year long. Thank you.

  2. ~ ~ ~ ~ MERRY CHRISTMAS ~ ~ ~ ~

    Y’all and eat, drink and be merry, let’s plan for a better New Year and keep your powder dry, etc.

  3. Merry Christmas to all. Thank you for your friendship and patience with my “back in the day” stories. I pray that God will keep us all out of trouble and give us a happy, safe, and prosperous New Year.

  4. Happy Christmas! I am Home Alone this year. Daughter upt and ran off last year, got married and moved to suburban Ft. Worth; stepsons are with their Dad, who whilst not a devout Muslim is Muslim-enough to want his sons not to be at my house when I’m smoking 3 racks of babyback ribs and a bacon-wrapped soy/mirin/kokuto black sugar pork shoulder. Dear Wife is working a 12-hour (double-time holiday differential) as a hospitalist 5 days straight.

    Don’t feel sorry for me though…my good neighbor, whose son is a KLM pilot, dropped off two 5L minikegs of DAB and Fullers London Pride (sorry Kim), both of which are reaching cellar temp in my basement laundry room.

    The Christmas Spirit Lives In Me.

  5. A Belated Merry Christmas to All.
    (was in internet lockdown all day yesterday, and…..HOW SWEET IT IS!)
