    Ayuh, never fear, Gamma, she knows her way around the Festivus Pole.......
    ....... and a happy celebration of whatever sort during the solstice season that you and the subservient member of your household observe during this time of the year to you, too

    Festivus . . . the only holiday that is centered around a stripper pole . . . well to me it looks like a stripper pole. ;) :)

    To celebrate the solstice we went caroling last night, at a rather unlikely place. Bank of America and Wells Fargo. Father Solstice led the choir. YouTube to follow.

    Happy Festivus Hoss-
    I miss Festivus but alas, since the kids have left, the pole sits unpolished in the attic.
    I hear the airing of grievances every night after happy hour starts.
    And there's no more strength for feats.
    Give the Ol Grey Mare a scratch behind 'er left ear for me. She'll know.

    Love-
    Kenny

    I just did that, she stopped what she was doin', looked at me kinda surprized, like, fer a minute, and sez, "I didn't know you knew Kenny."

    I always win the feats of strength. And the airing of grievances.
