It’s a slow start to Boxing Day this year, which is just the way I like it. I’m still recovering from a wall-to-wall Christmas, which is, well, also just the way I like it.
Yesterday was a wonderful escapade that started with cooking, ended with two bottles of 2009 Ravenswood “Estate” Zinfandel (which were extremely drinkable even given their relatively young age), and in between featured stops at three different locations for LOTS of food with family and friends. Unlike other years, there were no games (Monopoly, poker, craps) — must be residual fear of my mad skillz after having won $20 at Thanksgiving.
Anyways . . . the driving to and fro provided a couple more hours to listen to our iPod playing Christmas music on shuffle mode. From that collection comes the classic diddy above. The picture in the video is unrelated to the song, but is not completely irrelevant to the goings on here (though for the record, as much as I admire Bing’s work, I’ve always been partial to Carey Grant).
Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year.
