And Yet Another Christmas

Here we are, another Christmas almost come and gone.  I sit here, listening to the soft breeze through the open windows, the traffic, the occasional siren (from somewhere near downtown, no doubt), and I can still barely remember the winters from my youth up in New England.
     The cold, the snow, the shoveling, my aching back- oh, wait, that's dad bitching, not me.
     It's 73 degrees right now, at 5:23 in the morning, and I'm loving it.  Of course, it's supposed to rain later on, but that's okay.
     This will be, let me see... somewhere between my twentieth and twenty-second Christmas on this planet.  I don't remember exactly because dad doesn't remember exactly.
     Once again, we're keeping it pretty low key.  We're going to be spending this Christmas watching old movies, enjoying a few beers, maybe going out for lunch.  Simply enjoying each other's company, the three of us.

                           Brief interlude-
      Imagine soft music playing, maybe get a snack or go pee...

     Sorry, I had to yak.  It takes two of us- one to yak (me) and one to clean up the warm mess (dad).

     Anyway, I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year, and I hope 2014 is good to you.  Here's to adding another year to what has been a long, spoiled, luxurious life of leisure (dad just had to put that in there).
   See you all next year!

Thank you so much for stopping by! We wish you all a wonderful holiday and merry Christmas too. Maybe try to spoil your dad and make it yak-free...just for one day. LOL.

Purrs and peace,

It was terribly cold here in southern Alberta (-40; that's the same in both Celsius and Fahrenheit; yikes!) then it was warm (thanks to a Chinook wind), then it was cold, now it is warm again. In this part of the world, it's like having meteorological malaria: warm, cold, warm cold...

You are indeed kind of old, Orbit, but you have many more Christmases to enjoy. In the meantime, I hope this will be a good one for you. A happy Yuletide to you and your dad!

Merry Christmas to you, Orbit and your mom and dad! You yaked, but Chuck couldn't negotiate the edge of the litter box, so stuff happens, even on a holiday. Give your humans lots of purrs, and they'll forget about it; works for us!

Merry Catmas to you and your dad and mom, Orbit! I had a Catmas yak this morning--I got a bite of a plant that lives in the Forbidden Room while my mom had her back turned. So after I left a food-and-leaf combo, I waited a bit for that to be cleaned up, and then I did a Linda Blair in every other room after drinking a lot of water. That was pretty fun.
