... And to all a good night

To quote Mike Ross, the newly minted gun control advocate on a possible gubernatorial candidacy, never say never. But I nonetheless may be done for the day.

The weather was ideal for our traditional Christmas Eve walk on the quieting streets.

I have many duties in the kitchen today, tomorrow and the next day. I also must make one last run for a stocking stuffer, plus some bread and milk for Wednesday's snowpocalypse (joking on that last).

The line is open. If there be a war on Christmas, Christmas won easily at our house. Presents are secondary, though, to the happiness of having Fritz and Martha with us from their homes far away.

The line is open.

"I heard him exclaim as he drove out of sight, Merry Christmas to all .... "
