Wanted to send everyone a quick note to say have a happy, merry, swingin’ Christmas! It’s 74 and sunny here in the sub-tropics, and while you’re having a crisp, white Christmas, we’ll be celebrating the Florida way…driving around tonight in the convertible with the top down looking at all the kool Christmas lights in the neighborhood.
On Christmas day we’ll have our tradition BBQ, with burgers, dogs, ribs and chix. Colleen made homemade cookies for the neighbors and friends, and I’ll be imbibing some of the Tiki Eggnog Grog I posted last week. My dad’s Lionel trains (from his first Christmas in 1931) will be running under the tree, and we’ll have on Christmas movies and tunes from our wonderful past…from Esquivel’s Christmas album to the original Miracle on 34th Street, it’ll be a swingin’ Christmas!
Tonight, Christmas eve, I’ll do something I’ve done every year since 1980 – listen to my collection of 30s, 40s and 50s Christmas radio programs, including Milton Berle, George and Gracie, and Jack Benny.
Mele Kalikimaka, kats & kittens!
