  1. That's a great photo of you and John on stage! The gig tonight sounds fun, and you only have to entertain for an hour, then you can be entertained by others; I like gigs like that!

    I was just listening to my favorite Holiday CD by the "Christmas Carols," which is a quartet of women each named Carol singing Yiddish versions of popular Christmas carols (it's so funny; it sounds more like they are whining than singing--okay, I'm just kidding................it's not really my favorite Holiday CD. I was also rejoicing (feeling all warm and cozy) that my oil-fired furnace seems to be working particularly efficiently this year--the drum should have run out of oil a week ago, but there is still a lot of oil left! It may be able to last until the new year before refueling! It's like a miracle or whatever! Feeling in good cheer; feeling festive and all...anyway...I wanted to wish you a Merry Hanukkah! Or what have you...BTW, even though I'm a Gentile, I also wanted to say Happy Kwanzaa!!

  4. Yeah, that Santa is a creep! He never once gave me any gelt! That's okay, I'll have the last laugh; I'm gonna put some laxative in his latkes and apple sauce this year!
