Menu redux

Mmmm. House smells good.

Five pounds of pulled BBQ chicken in the Crock Pot all day, simmering in that yummy Sweet Baby Ray's Honey-Chipotle sauce.

And we'll pile it onto those big, fat bakery wheat buns. With Ranch Style beans, mustard potato salad, and mo' spicy deviled eggs.

And there's spinach-artichoke dip for munching. And we won't run low on boxed chocolates until Easter, but there's pumpkin pie with whipped cream on top for dessert, anyway. And mulled apple cider, with or without the bourbon.

Then maybe some card-playing.

We're rather sedate ol' poops, so if you're thinking of stopping by later tonight, you won't be admitted unless you're wearing fuzzy slippers.

What will we do after all the cozy holidays are past? At midnight. Sigh...

Just saw where, in some

Just saw where, in some Scandinavian countries, celebrants stand in chairs and jump off of them in unison at midnight. Probably not a good idea when dranking.

I'm a (sedate) celebrant. You're a (sedate) celebrant. The seats of my chairs aren't really that far off the ground...

I don't think we'd have to drag a mattress in from down the hall.

Shoot, let's try it!
