Merry Beermas!

Had to laugh about the letter to the editor yesterday about the lady complaining that the Argus featured a photo of a beer drinking black bearded Santa, because she thought Santa should be seen as a role model to children (and should only have a white beard).

I guess no one told her that Santa doesn’t ‘really’ exist and any portrayal of this fictional character is game. Besides, doesn’t she know the true meaning of Christmas and what she should be teaching children about the holiday? Consumerism.

City spends almost $13,000 for 8 blocks of Holiday Lighting on Phillips Ave.

What?! is the city participating in the war on Christmas? Holiday lighting?

Kind of confused about this (Item #1), because I was always under the impression that DTSF paid for the holiday decorations and lights downtown while public works assisted in hanging them. Hopefully there will be some kind of explanation about this expenditure come Tuesday night.

Merry Christmas

My favorite bartender took this while enjoying my favorite Christmas present, a vodka tonic tonight. Stay strong soldiers in 2013, we will conquer all!

Now enjoy (one my favorite) albums;

This was my favorite message written on a card this year from a dear friend,

May God give you . . .

• Protection

• An open mind

• Enlightenment

• True Love

• Integrity

These are the greatest gifts to me.

I couldn’t agree more.

Merry Christmas with the Blues Bashers and Chuck Luden

CHRISTMAS  ESCAPE

I’m in orbit

You know what I mean

Like gone man

The music sends me there

Where is she?

I’m walking alone

Perpetual what?

There yeah now

Wow!

Note: One night after a poetry reading at the Horse Barn some of us went to Grille 26.  I opened my notebook and read this poem to the group.  Another poet at the table (M.J.) said, “What does that have to do with X-mas?” I guess my Christmases are unique. – C.L.

The best Christmas album ever made? Perhaps.

If you don’t own this Christmas album, I highly suggest the purchase. Here is a sampling.

Happy Holidays to all of my readers

Even if some of you dislike me.

I would especially like to thank a group of people who help me to keep abreast on the issues, your support is invaluable and I truly appreciate it;

Theresa, Kermit, Cheryl, Helga, Jonathan, Debra, Greg, and Kenny.

There are many others, but they would probably prefer I didn’t mention their names. So here is a wink and nod.
