The winter cold swoops in

Clearly it's wintertime when The Kid starts getting the sniffles. After a few days of that, it turns into the snuffles. A couple of days later, he's up for a Golden Globe for Best Dramatic Interpretation of a Cold.

Tales from the mother lode

Talkin’ more turkey

I'm not usually the type of person who goes public when it comes to saying things I'm grateful for or thankful for. It's between me and my good buddy Jesus and his old man. They always get a chest thump and "peace out" from me.

If the house is a-rockin’...

Don't bother knockin'. 'Cause we're dancing like it's 1999. Or better yet, we're dancing till the Mayan calendar ends. Which was officially November 6, 2012.

Digging into new digs
