Part of me is a wife and mom, part of me is a writer and poet and part of me is still a kid in jeans tooling around in my VW Beetle listening to Joni Mitchell, Carly Simon, James Taylor ... and The Beatles ...

Bah! Humbug!

Yes, it’s true. As soon as we put away the Thanksgiving dishes, we find ourselves shamelessly unprepared for Christmas.

And what’s with Black Friday?
Is this some new appellation? Does it spell doom for the Christmas revelers? Or is a prayer of hope whispered by retailers hoping for a plump bottom line?

No matter. Up on your feet you well-fed consumers. Out to the highways and byways you go. Suffer the long lines, fight for the parking spaces, grab the best deal and deplete your checkbooks and credit lines. Then drag yourself home and get some rest for you’ll soon remember you’ve forgotten the scarf for Aunt Sue and the star for the top of the tree. There’s your boss you need to impress and your neighbor you need to outshine. Get the last X-box or laptop or whatever is the toy to have this year. And remember Peace on Earth, Goodwill to Men, Feed the hungry and give Toys for Tots.

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good-nigh
