Get Me Through December

Inky was yesterday. My friends have three live kitties and these three as well.

Last night's first Christmas party of the year went very well. I had two new waitresses and one volunteer was one hour late but it all worked very well and the forty people had a great time. The first one of the year is always a bit stressful because nothing is routine yet and I was afraid of forgetting something but I didn't. Phew!

We are expecting our first snow tonight. I don't have snowtires on yet and a steep driveway so I may be in trouble. Perhaps I'll get a ride with the cook. Or call my tire place at 8 to see if I could possibly get an appointment. They will probably just laugh.

Music: I've waited a long time to put this up. Get Me Through December by Alison Krauss with Natalie MacMaster is one of the nicest songs ever. I was born without Christmas spirit and that's what I ask for year after year. Just get me through December. In honour of the Christmas perty season, here's One Scotch, One Bourbon, One Beer, this version by Snooks Eaglin.

No links anymore due to lack of interest.

My neighbor just used his jack and changes the tires himself. All things considered, its alot easier probably than making your way into town...

You've got to be kidding. I'll take the trip to town. I have a scar on my thumb from changing a tire in 1973.

Ha! I watched my neighbor do all four tires in 25 minutes. Quicker than I could drive to the tire place and back. Although just to be clear, I had two beer while watching him work!!

I love that song! Though the only version I've ever heard is the George Thorogood version. One Burbon, One Scotch and One Beer. It's really a fun song. He tells a whole story to the music before he starts singing.
