Christmas in review 
Tuesday, December 26th, 2006 | 12:53 pm [holidays, personal]

Ashley loved what I got her – a couple of Joyce Carol Oates books she didn’t have, and Love Story on DVD – so it was a great Christmas from where I’m sitting.  A little after three we sat down to a dinner of ham and chicken and sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, succotash, stuffing and spiced apples, with Granny’s red velvet cake for dessert.  After I took Granny home, I went to Ashley’s grandmother’s house and ate dinner with her family, which was country ham sandwiches, fruit salad and baked oysters.  Not too shabby.


How did I make out as far as presents, you ask?  That can best be answered with four words:  Johnny.  Cash.  Action.  Figure.


"Hello, I'm articulated."You damn right.  I didn’t even know these fucking things existed, but my mom found one when she and Granny went to Tennessee for a week after Thanksgiving.  I made out good this year – a Sports Illustrated baseball book, a heated ice scraper from Granny, and a shitload of money – but Little Johnny there is my favorite by far.  Dad couldn’t believe how thrilled I was by it.  “Can you imagine a man twenty-six years old getting that excited over an action figure?” he asked Granny with a grin.


The tree was beautiful, the food was great, and I have the best family in he world.  This year’s Christmas was a keeper.
