A Second Christmas At Chez Runt. December 27, 2008

[Update – I fixed the Robert Tiso link.]

I had the pleasure of two Christmases this year, the first being a Christmas Eve celebration at Frau B and Miz Lu’s house, with oysters, Champagne and the dulcet tones of Mojo Nixon’s seasonal classic, “Happy Horny Holidays!” That culminated in a sleep-over under a ‘Lechic Binkie.

Today I had Christmas Number Two, a Gift-Free Event which would have made Reverend Billy proud.  My daughters came over with their Mom, The Pagan Sphinx, and my Big Brother joined us as well, for a Pseudo-Traditional Meal of turkey and dressing and assorted fixin’s.

‘Twas Guuud!

We talked and ate the afternoon away, with the conversation generally weaving a thread around the life and legacy of Jesus of Nazareth.  I think it’s safe to say that all of us who were present are big fans of that man, and were happy to pay small homage to him with this humble gathering.

While the turkey and root crops were in the oven, I had to run out for a few things; but as it was raining, and consequently butt-ugly out, I haven’t got any fresh photos for you.  I did, however, find this bit of seasonal music which lifted my heart:

Robert Tiso, a classical musician from Bologna, Italy.

It made me think of some special folks who are spending what is likely to be their last Holiday Season in their present home, due in no small measure to the fiscal situation this country presently finds itself in.

They’re so not alone in that, and I think that’s a reality which should never be far from our hearts and minds as we enjoy whatever we have in this season of compassion and light.

I’ve gotten hugs today from everyone I truly love (who isn’t far away) and my belly is full, and for this I’m grateful.  I hope your Holidays went that well.

Peace, Out.

What a beautiful day you had with your family! I’m so glad that you got not one, but two days to celebrate.

Thank you for your kind words and your concern about our situation. It makes things easier to cope with when we know we have the support of our friends.

Hugs to you, TCR! Sounds like a lovely Christmas. Glad you’re a fan of the man :-). And what a great combo – fun with friends and peace with family (and vice versa).

Miss Maya Pavlova is hovering over the laptop and sends purrs.
