Saint Nicholas Day

Yesterday (December 5) was the 75th anniversary of the ratification of the 21st Amendment to the US Constitution, which ended prohibition. "Director of National Drug Control Policy" is a cabinet level post. Those who can not remember the past are doomed to repeat it...

Otherwise... Willie G. is thirteen years old today. That is, I have been carrying him around with me more or less constantly since I found him in my shoe on this day in 1995. He was tasked with generally keeping me safe from the beginning, and it would seem that he works VERY hard. One of these days I need to post a picture of him...

Today is also the 52nd birthday of Robin, my first fiancee. I tend to think about her on this day every year. The relationship was usually stupid, often terrible, but occasionally wonderful. It should have lasted about six months; it lasted five years.

I will be on vacation for a week starting at noon tomorrow. I am doing an odd local road trip. So far I have have connections for Wednesday in Normal, Friday in Anderson, and Saturday in Louisville. I am hoping for Thursday in Kalamazoo, but don't know yet.

Finally... It is that time of year again. If you would like a Yule card from us, and have moved or did not receive one last year, send me your snail mail address. Comments are screened, or write me at unclehyena at gmail.
