I was going to visit my mom in Mt Vernon. Took metro north train. Exited Fleetwood Station. Left all gifts in overhead rack. Raced train to Scarsdale Station in the Camry. Caught it. Retrieved gifts.

Fare thee well, dear Ralph Carney! He will be deeply missed.

Won't pretend that this time of year doesn't really, really suck for some of us, but many thanks to Irene for making the holiday melancholy real nice this evening.

I've got something like 70-80 hours of Holiday music on my computer. But there's always more great stuff that I haven't heard yet! These "folk" carols like The Cherry Tree Carol, for example.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 12/19/17 11:03pm DC:

Roches harmonies are a class of their own, indeed

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 12/19/17 11:59pm Irene Trudel:

diciassette, Nica is indeed one of the most beautiful kitties I've ever had in the family. Her eyes are a nice shade of green. They just look weird in the flash. (yellow-eye instead of red-eye?) Hi KP, and thanks to all for tuning in. Hope your holidays, whatever they may be, are nicely celebrated.
