I don’t know how this past year was for you, but I hope it was a good one. For me, eh, about average I guess. At this stage of my life, it’s important to adjust expectations, of course. Any year when you don’t lose a friend, a family member, a critter, or have a stroke or a heart attack yourself is a pretty good year.

Whatever it is that today means to you, I hope it’s a good one for you and everybody you care about (and your pesky puppies). Here, it’s warm and wet and green, which reminds me of our refrigerator after the power was off for two weeks back in September of ’98. Except that was really stinky, too. I didn’t hear Santa on the roof last night, and it occurs to me that I forgot to pull the pellet stoves out of the fireplace, so I reckon we were passed by once again. Good thing – the only cookies we had to leave out for him were dog cookies. Have a good day, and may you have many happy returns tomorrow.

Well, it was certainly an exciting week last week, wasn’t it? The poor teabaggers and wingnuts – they still hadn’t gotten over Benghazi (let alone Obama opening the borders to terrorists), were falling all over themselves to blame black folks for stepping in front of cops’ bullets (or getting their necks all tangled up in police officer’s arms) and then Obama decides to kowtow to Castro. On top of that, beloved American corporation Sony caves to North Korean terrorists (way to go, Obama) and liberal scourge Andy Cuomo is reluctantly forced to ban fracking (supposedly). And yesterday two NYC police officers were executed for basically being in the wrong place at the wrong time (ironic, perhaps, but horrifying and tragic nonetheless). Welcome to the holiday season.

I Guess We’ll See If I Need Snow Tires

I got home Monday night, and the damned Internet wasn’t working. Or, more accurately, my connection to the Internet wasn’t working. So that sucked. I had to schedule a tech visit for the next day “between 8 and 12” and my satellite receiver keep freezing up when I played a recorded show for more than half an hour or so. So, no Internet, no NetFlix, and no teevee makes for a very dull evening. The tech guy didn’t get out here until 11:00 (not that I’m complaining – I’m usually just happy when they find the house), and it turned out to be a bad trap out at the road. So all was well again by 12:30 or so – obviously too late to drive 35-40 minutes to work.

Yesterday afternoon I found myself home alone, which is a good opportunity for me to crank tunes (and cook a week’s worth of food). So on comes “The Circle Game” which I’ve of course heard a million times before but when I listened to

You know how when you buy a car and all of a sudden you see millions of those cars everywhere? That’s not happening to me, I guess ‘cuz I don’t really know what my car looks like anymore. I have to park it in the same place everyday so I’ll recognize it (and that’s really only because I have the same license plate). I parked someplace different yesterday at work, and it took me forever to figure out which one it was. For one thing, it’s silver, but in the dark, it looks kinda white. Oh well, after a few years I’ll probably figure it out.
