As the Christmas Season fast approaches, there is something for everyone, except the atheists, the chronically bitter and the Jehovah’s Witnesses who feel that celebrating anything is a sin (their loss).

Chanukah (and 8 crazy nights) is in the past, the winter solstice tomorrow offers you pagans a reason to go outside and dance naked, and Kwanzaa is ahead for negroes who are angry at the other holidays. (I left out Muslims because I don’t care and NASA’s mission is no longer to get them to feel good about themselves)

The Trump Administration has done remarkably well this year, which doesn’t sit well with progressives. The “largest tax cut in history” will be signed into law before Christmas. Those Democrats who don’t like it can donate their tax returns back to Uncle Sam. Nobody is stopping them. Or they can be more dramatic and just burn those tax return checks in a ‘day of rage’… 
There are reports out of North Korea that Kim Jong Un has executed some of his minions. There’s no way to verify the reports, but it is the Hermit Kingdom and that’s what they do there. I don’t think that it has much to do with Christmas. Norks don’t celebrate Christmas, but Christmas is celebrated South Korea…and South Koreans aren’t infested with worms and parasites. Coincidence? You be the judge.

I’m always annoyed when the water bill and the electric bill, etc. arrive in late December. Public utilities must not believe in Christmas. And the December credit card charges should be forgiven and the the accounts zeroed out in January (for the sake of Auld Lang Syne).

This week is generally dedicated to going to lunch with friends that I don’t see that often. This year is no exception. Slow week. Yesterday a colleague dropped some stuff on me at lunch, so I’m going to Angola early in 2018. Something to look forward to?

  1. Merry Christmas to you and your family, LL! Looking forward to your progress on the White Wolf Mine next year.

  2. I was complaining about the expense involved with custom construction so "M" said, "then you won't mind going to Angola and making some money." I was hoisted on my own petard. Thank you for the Christmas wishes. I hope that there is a new seaplane in the hanger for you.

  3. With your feelings that the credit card companies should forgive your bill and zero it out for Christmas, it seems you are showing a tad bit Progressive. That's what they want, ya know. And I think the worst job security in the world is being involved with Un de Turd.

  4. "I'm always annoyed when the water bill and the electric bill, etc. arrive in late December. Public utilities must not believe in Christmas. And the December credit card charges should be forgiven and the the accounts zeroed out in January (for the sake of Auld Lang Syne)."

    You should be careful, you are starting to sound as delusional as a Democrat.

    P.S.: Marry Christmas to you and yours.

  5. Back to Aunt Sally's for Christmas. Thanksgiving dinner was absolutely God Awful. I am thinking that she can't possibly serve a worse meal, but I say that every time and am sorely disappointed every time.

    If I sneak out to McDonald's, grab a burger and some fries, and then sneak back in and fake an illness, maybe I will be spared this year from Aunt Sally's Christmas 'cooking.'

  6. I have actually done that very thing. Jack-in-the-Box is often open on Christmas. Go out for a quick feed and then just opt for a bit of dessert. Though with Aunt Sally, the tofu ice cream…

  7. It's one of those money-up-front things. Enough money and I would go to Luanda and tell people what they're doing wrong in the heat (Summer there now).

  8. Angola, Indiana? I've been there many times. Don't know why people think it's such a pit. The Lum's has good burgers and spicy fries. Hardly ever get malaria there, but maybe that's just me.

  9. I like to remember that any day above ground is a good day, so until that happens, it's all good.

    Wishing you a good Christmas to you and yours from me and mine.
