22 December 2007 - 21:30A Pennsyltasic Pre Christmas
Normally, we head to Allentown for the Christmas holidays, but this year, we are using it as a base for our trans-atlantic hoo haw. Santa came a little early, so our boy would not miss out on a good old fashioned Pennsylvania Christmas.
This is the first real day of my “vacation”, and it has been filled with activity. After presents, it was time for emails, and brunch, which consisted of pre-noon Yuenglings and sandwiches. We then busted 3″ of ice off the in law’s driveway, and got it all clear for the great grandparents, who will be visiting for tonight’s feast. I got two really nice blisters in the middle of my palms. Now crippled, I am forced to keep something cold in my hands at all times. I will be useless for the rest of the day. Bring on the whiskey!
As I write this, I’m listening to David Byrne’s (of Talking Heads fame) streaming radio station. Every month, there is a different theme, and this month, it is the music of Ennio Morricone. Anyone who has watched a spaghetti western will immediately recognize his work. It’s really interesting music, and great to listen to while building wheels.
Tomorrow, it’s off to NYC.
