Memories and a Grouch

First: Memories of Christmas. My mom told me she had found and got out the ol' Mitch Miller Sing Along record. Oh my!!! That brought back so many memories of Christmas. We use to play that record constantly at Christmas time. I'm surprised when she told me it still worked. I figured it would be so scratched up and worn from all the use. I'm thinking I will be buying it soon for my own kids. A little late to get it now with Christmas being only 9 days away... but definitely on my list of things to get one day. What's your favorite Christmas record?

Second: A couple of bloggers, Bou and ArmyWifeToddlerMom, have been reading this blog called Grouchy Old Cripple. Over the last 6 months or more, they have referenced something he has written. Needless to say, I have been out of the loop. Finally, I started reading him today. And here is a quote from one of his posts:

Anyway, I know lots of people by their blog names and not their real names. I know Army Wife's first name, but not her last. I also know that she is hot!

and later on in that same post:

I do know Bou's first and last name along with that of her sister, Morrigan, but I ain't telling. Keeping up with the pattern of this post, I have to say they're both hot. Smart too.

Anyone that can say that about those two, can't be all that grouchy. Well, that and the humor he puts out is certainly funny to me and far from the grouchy side. And waited until close to Christmas to discover him. Sigh... I really need to listen better to those around me.

I note I did not get "smart"...

*I will go and eat a loaf of french bread with butter now....*.....

Maybe he just couldn't past your looks to notice you were smart. ;-)

I'm loving listening to Bing's White Christmas again this year (every year). I love the oldies. And I love George Winstons "December" album too. It all makes me happy.... :)

Denny's really a great guy... not grouchy at all unless someone riles him. And then it's funny as hell to read his teardowns on that person!

BTW, AW... would you share some of that french bread? I'm starving.

AWTM- Ummm, he didn't mention your vast intelligence because it was kind of a given. Anyone as frickin' funny as you has to be really really smart. :)

Dear AW - I don't know what it is that you do. Eric introduced me to Bou and told me she was a rocket scientist. Mo works in the computer industry. Remember though, you are the "hot Martha Stewart". How many women could say that? Plus you look real cute in your jammies.
