OK.  Not to sound too maudlin, but this will be my father’s fifth dead Christmas.  He went out in the spring of ’15.

Shit happens.

I like flowers.

(I’m not gay, you’re gay)

((not that there’s anything wrong with that))

But every year we go and visit his (and other dead folks’) graves and put flowers on them at Christmas.  We actually do it several times a year.  Christmas, Spring/Easter, Summer, Fall.  You name it.  And I get that it’s good for these old people, of whom I now have become one (I turned 53 two days ago), to have a remembrance of the past.  Well at least the ones who can remember the past, that is.

Wait, what was I talking about?

But seriously, folks….

This year we decided to leave my morbidly obese, horribly disfigured and dementia ridden uncle at home…

tWBS: I’m not picking him up if he falls.

tWBS’ Mom: Screw you, I’m not either.

tWBS: Wooooo, issue decided!!!

(so we left the old fucker at home)

((he won’t remember in two days))

So it was just Mom and myself this year.  But it was still cold.  Damned cold.  After the visitation of the dead, I stopped at the booze store on the way home and could barely wait until getting home to have a nip.

DON’T DRINK AND DRIVE PPL!!!!!!

But as flippant and I’m being here so far, we did go to various “markers” and put down Christmas flowers today.  So that’s our thing this week.

Flower Power!!!

yeah right

The best possible news is that this beautiful marble that we temporarily inhabit will exist way beyond our meager existence.

We need to be shaken off like a flea.

yeah right

Don’t make me show my work!

yeah right

You’ve got to be able…

Utah picked off by club-hand–shut it down.

I didn’t know the Seahawks could loan out Griffins.

yeah right

They have all of the Griffins.

Least they could do was share.

Of all the conferences to play on Friday, PAC10 probably the worst, since even an 8pm start is only 5pm out there.

WCS

Yarp. Should’ve been the MAC and AAC title games tonight.

Counter argument: the PAC-12 is shit this year & they wanted any & all eyes they could get. Saturday & Sunday are lost, and next week is Army-Navy.
