Welcome one and all to the x-mas holiday Trail Mix!
While my family in Oregon gathered last night, and assembles again today, and my lady's family and several of our friends head this way in NYC now for a day of eating, joking around and present giving, I'm really struck by the level of goodwill out there in the world and within even this withered and weary soul of mine.
That said, the guy at the quickymart had to buzz me in because they are keeping the doors locked today. Someone told me there are lots of holiday robberies on X-mas. Last night, I saw a guy getting arrested outside a liquor store. in the park, someone was following us a little too close and I had to talk real loud and "tough" to ward him off, on and on and one.
It's a Wonderful Life.
But some of us are George Baily on the bridge, and some of us have jumped.
Anyway ... enough Capt. Bringdown ...
This JD/Trail Mix is my escape for the day when I need it ... What you doing today?
(Oh, and if you want a horrid hymn to punk up your x-mas, enjoy this one and a free download. As always, consider yourself spammed.)
