December 2021

Hi folks, How are you? Have you finished your Christmas shopping? Our crew is settling in for a quiet day at home, as we wait for this snowstorm to arrive. My lower back has already tightened up in anticipation of the shoveling (but maybe it won't be so bad?), so I'll have to work on that when we're done here. Oh well, it's mid-December, can't really complain about there finally being some snow. Apologies to anyone who wanted to watch Metallica with us last night. We were all set to enjoy the show on Amazon Prime Video, and then BDH... Read more →

Hi folks, Welcome back, and a happy Friday to you all! What's on tap for the weekend? It sounds like the first real snowstorm of the year is coming tomorrow, so that may cause some chaos with the schedule. The wind is already howling, so we'll see if that's a sign of things to come. My guess is that we'll be here with you tomorrow, we'll watch the New England Patriots tomorrow night, and then we'll be spending a good part of Sunday shoveling. I should start stretching now. Thankfully, I'm done Christmas shopping, so at least that's out of... Read more →

Hello, friends! It's hard to believe, but we're about to finish another year. 2021 was certainly an improvement over 2020, even if that wasn't the highest bar to clear. However, it came with its own challenges, whether it was the continuing pandemic or a political party trying to destroy democracy in the United States. On the other hand, one thing that remained as terrific as ever was getting to hang out with all of you. We once again had visitors from just about every country on Earth. We're thrilled so many people found content they liked. Whether it was chatting... Read more →

Hi folks, Welcome back! How are you? The U.S. Postal Service came through yesterday, and both of the presents I was waiting for arrived with plenty of time to spare. Score! Now I just have to get something for Dad Clutter's cat. Hopefully the local pet store has another toy he'll like. However, I was just talking to BDH and Little Buddha about how I wasn't expecting it to rain this morning. The guys said they don't expect it to last that long, so I shouldn't have to worry about getting too wet while I do today's errands. Works for... Read more →

Hi folks, Welcome back! How are things? The week is humming along so far here. No luck at the bookstore yesterday. BDH and Little Buddha are still trying to push through the last book we bought, but we may shift to holiday programming for the rest of the month. The guys say not to worry about it, they're just happy to have time together. They really do have their priorities in the right place. Of course, I'll check the new releases again next week for any possible last-minute Christmas presents. Our duo is also still fascinated by the fact the... Read more →

Hi folks, Welcome back! How are you? I had another successful round of Christmas shopping yesterday. Wrapped everything up, and now I'm mostly just waiting for a couple of presents to arrive in the mail. They're supposed to come later this week, so hopefully I'll be done with everything by the end of next weekend. Also, don't tell BDH and Little Buddha, but someone is sending them a book I think they will really like in January. )Don't worry, they can't hear us. They're distracted by the bright new street light outside our window.) Oh, here they come. Of course,... Read more →

Hi folks, Welcome back! Ready to start a new week? Not sure we are either, but since we don't really have a choice, how about we all do it together? I had a productive Sunday, which was good. Did a little more Christmas shopping and then wrapped everything I have so far. There are a couple of items coming in the mail this week, and I still have a few more stores/shops to visit. Other than that, things are pretty much on track. BDH and Little Buddha just made a fresh pot of coffee, so grab yourself a nice medium... Read more →

Hi folks, Welcome back! How are you? Our crew is doing well, except that we've been listening to some crazy wind since about 11:00 last night. There was also heavy rain for a while, but at least that's over. I don't like winter/snow, but this is the wrong weather for mid-December. Anyway, I think today will be relatively quiet, since there's no New England Patriots game or Doctor Who episode to watch. There are only a handful of items on the to-do list, and then maybe we'll catch a football game this afternoon or evening. First, let's check out the... Read more →

Hi folks, Welcome back, and a happy Friday to you all! What's on tap for the weekend? There's no New England Patriots game. and no new Doctor Who episode, so we'll have to come up with a new plan. Well, we could do some more Christmas shopping. Of course, we'll also be celebrating the fact that the sunsets are now getting later. Of course, they'll only initially be about three seconds later than they were yesterday, but at least we're moving in the right direction. Alright, it looks like we've got that covered, so let's get to work. BDH and... Read more →

Hi folks, How are you? Our crew is doing fine at the moment. I finished driving before the snow came yesterday. Not only were the roads safe, there was considerably less traffic than usual. Don't know why that happened, but I'm not complaining at all. The big news is that tonight is the earliest sunset of the year! That's sort of a holiday around here, as we look forward to the pivot that starts tomorrow. It may still be dark at 4:00 on Friday afternoon, but it will start about one second later than today. Seconds eventually become minutes, and... Read more →
