Merry Christmas, my very good friends! It’s been a long year with quite a bit of craziness; I hope that it didn’t cause any of you to act out. It’d be a real shame if Santa finds your name on his naughty list. Of course, I seem to stay there…. Been asking for a flame thrower for forty years and still, that fat guy in the red coat has yet to come through. Not that I really need a flame thrower; I just thought it’d be fun to light up the barbecue pit when we cook a hog.
