Let the Holidays Commence

I delivered my final outstanding freelance assignment a little while ago, updated ComicMix into Sunday morning and can actually enjoy the holidays.
There’s always something more to do, but essentially, I can kick back and be with Deb and Kate and enjoy tonight and tomorrow knowing there’s nothing pressing waiting for me.
It’s been a struggle this month to fit everything in as the Iron Man novel proved a little tougher than I thought plus time lost to proofing other projects, getting more involved in the political life thanks to the Madoff investment mess, and the usual time-consuming holiday stuff.
Just as I hit send, the phone rang with some disappointing news which we’ll talk about another time. Right now, though, I am shutting down and resting. So, to one and all, a Merry Christmas, a Happy Hanukah, and a joyous, safe, restful holiday season.

    Dear Bob, Deb and Kate,
    I thank you from the bottom of my heart for being the wonderful family that you are. Robbie was indeed a favourite of mine, for reasons too many to mention. I was proud of him for qualities that I value in my two sons and secretly often wondered how brilliant it would be if he ever dated my daughter (I think every mother does that…)
    I gave Robbie a couple of presents (the Beanie Baby Dogs) because he had the German Sheppard one that I very much coveted from afar. Robbie lit up and we talked about dogs. He said the only breed he as not a great fan of was poodles and I never told him that my name was given to the pink poodle Beanie. Oh the shame! Even though he would have laughed, and probably agreed a pink poodle and I have some similarities.
    To be fair I would have had it coming because I’ve just remembered that I gave him Bongo the monkey.
    How many young men could you even think about giving such a silly gift too? Is there any better measure of an impeccable upbringing?
    I am recovering from surgery and miss being at work terribly, so hearing of your generosity and the warm hearts of everyone that donated to 7 – West. This Christmas Eve hour I think of you all and know that there are beautiful, wonderfully kind people in this world.
    From my family to your, Brigitte

  • Thinking of you all and wishing you the peace of the season. Merppy Chrismakwanzakkah!
