Mr. C. is on his way

Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus, and he is scheduled to visit on Friday. He's looking a little frayed around the cuffs. Word is he invested poorly and had to lay off a third of his workforce this year. Nobody ever said Santa was recession proof.

It's gonna be a slim Christmas around here, what with Mark's job loss and all the moving and rearranging in the past six months, paying for a university education not getting any cheaper... This year of all years I'd rather just skip Christmas and head to a secluded beach somewhere. But Oklahoma City is too far from any sunny beach and the shores of Lake Hefner just don't call out to me. Is there even a beach at Lake Hefner?

Enough of the bah-humbugging already. It is, after all, truly a celebration of the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Now there's something that is recession proof.

Anybody for a little Christmas jingle? Remember last year's creations? Get yourself warmed up with these and these and I'll serenade you with some new creations tomorrow. Happy Christmas week! I'll try to make this a bah humbug-free zone.
