The Frank Cross Chronicles

Christmas is now less than two weeks away - as is Hanukkah.  Temperature-wise, it is certainly beginning to feel a like like Christmas in these parts...or like winter at the very least.  In terms of weather, is there any vortex other than a Polar Vortex?  Asking for a friend.

The Missus spent most of yesterday running around, shopping and visiting, which meant that I was left unsupervised for significant portions of the day.  This time of the year that is not as frightening a proposition as it would be in the Spring.  You know, even I pay a bit of attention to the whole "making a list, checking it twice" business.  Even if - in my case - it falls under the heading of "the ship has already sailed". 

With Margaret out and about yesterday, I watched one of my favorite movies, "Scrooged", which is Bill Murray's take on A Christmas Carol.  These days, maybe, just maybe, we can all use a bit more of this sentiment than perhaps we once did...
