It's the night before Christmas, and all through the house, and all that rot.
Christmas carols are playing on the Cable channel, my cat is begging me for attention and so I can't type. At least I have wrapped all of my Christmas presents. It was my best wrapping job ever, thanks to Google and videos on "how to wrap a present." For once my presents don't look like they were slapped together by a madman. One of the major tools in accomplishing this is double-back scotch tape. You can hide the tape between the folds and the package looks much better that way.
My third son is here with his new wife and their two Pomeranian dogs. Our tradition is to attend a Christmas party in San Jose with family and friends. There will be lots of food, drink and conversation. By the time we get home it will be Christmas morning.
We will spend Christmas day watching corny Christmas shows on television, eating, drinking hot cider, coffee or cocoa and being gloriously and decadently lazy.
Comments and disagreement are welcome. If you are civil to me I will return the favor. Let's have a conversation.
