Twas the night before Christmas -- 12/24/09

If you have just wandered in from Holidailies and wonder who's who, there's a brief introduction to various characters at the end of this entry...

Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse... Well, I know we have no mice stirring because Tiger has been on patrol and even checked out the garage. No mice lurking about. Now he is sleeping under the tree...

There is a large package next to the tree, covered with a cloth throw because it is from Jill and she said it would not be environmentally correct to use that much wrapping paper. Tiger immediately decided that it belonged to him so he settled down on it for a nap.

This is a quiet night here... Nancy is reading in the living room, I am typing this, Tiger is napping, Jeremy is in Costa Rica (he sent an e-mail to say he was "alive and well"). I made pizza for dinner... Oh, and Nancy has put her book down and has gone into the kitchen to clean up. (Thank you, Nancy!)

Merry Christmas one and all.

Ho, ho, ho!

A brief introduction for those of you wandering in here from Holidailies for the first time: I'm just a middle-aged guy (but somehow I hit 66 on my last birthday) who lives in Rhode Island with my wife Nancy (a middle-school math teacher), daughter Gillian ("Jill" -- 27 yr old college student and baker), son Jeremy (24 yr old restaurant cook and part-time college student), and Tiger (senior citizen cat). Eldest child Adam lives in New York City with his wife Leah and our grandsons Sam and Milo. I'm a former programmer/systems analyst who got involved with software training and instructional design. For the past several years I have been working from home (you can't beat the short commute!) doing quality assurance and editing on course material for both classroom courses and Web-based training courses for a very big computer company. I've been writing this online journal since 1996.
