If things go according to plan, this will be my last post before Christmas. Of course, things rarely go according to plan, so don’t be surprised if I veer from the plan. For that matter, don’t be surprised if it veers from me.

I’m gonna spend the next few days unplugging the weblog and plugging in some blenders. I think “FELIZ MARGARITA” is gonna be the theme around the house for a while. I just need to spend some time with the wife, dogs, and family. That’s what Christmas is all about, right? And margaritas, of course.

Since this might be my only chance to say it, here goes: Just like Jerry Jones said, “I’m telling ya, I hope you do better than you’ve acted under the tree this year with that stocking up there.

Well, in case that’s not clear to you (or other humans), I want all of you to have a very magical holiday. I feel so blessed and so loved this year. I have an incredible wife who loves me despite all my faults. I have a great family that cheers when I do great things and doesn’t boo when it all goes to … heck. I love you all so much.

I spent the last 14 months or so kinda shell-shocked. (Maybe you did, too.) Well, be forewarned: That’s over. I’m storming towards 30 like a F4 towards a 1,000 sq. miles of trailer parks. So for those of you who have a Jimmy Buffett date with me in Tampa, get ready! Hell, by the time February gets here, I may be at F5 stength!

To my wife, family, & friends wherever you are, have a great Christmas. I love you all and miss ya. Feliz Navidad Margarita!

And now, for our musical entertainment:

Robert Earl Keen – Merry Christmas from the Family (play)

Mom got drunk and Dad got drunk
At our Christmas party
We were drinkin’ champagne punch
And homemade eggnog
Little sister brought her new boyfriend
He was a Mexican
We didn’t know what to think of him
Til he sang Feliz Navidad
Feliz Navidad

Brother Ken brought his kids with him
The three from his first wife Lynn
And the two identical twins
From his second wife MaryNell
Of course he brought his new wife Kaye
Who talks all about AA
Chain smokin’ while the stero plays
Noel, Noel, The first Noel

Carve the turkey turn the ball game on
Mix Margaritas when the eggnog’s gone
Send somebody to the Quik-Pak store
We need some ice and an extention cord
A can of bean dip and some Diet Rite
A box of tampons and some Marlboro Lights
Hallelujah everybody say cheese
Merry Christmas from the family

Fran and Rita drove from Harlingen
I can’t remember how I’m kin to them
But when they tried to plug their motorhome in
They blew our christmas lights
Cousin David knew just what went wrong
So we all waited on our front lawn
He threw the breaker and the lights came on
And we sang Silent Night
Oh Silent Night

Carve the turkey turn the ballgame on
Make Bloody Marys cause we all want one
Send somebody to the Stop ‘n Go
We need some celery and a can of fake snow
A bag of lemons and some Dite Sprite
A box of tampons and some Salem Lights
Hallelujah everybody say cheese
Merry Christmas from the family

Feliz Navidad.
