the eve of the eve

Well, it's nearly time to take off on our whirlwind family holiday traveling fiesta.

First stop is Cleveland for my side of the family Christmas. Oh there will be turkey, stuffing, potatoes and a somewhat passing excuse for a vegetable (canned green beans swimming in cream of mushroom soup with fried onions). But the good stuff will be there too: pierogi, halushki, kolachies.

We'll waddle back to Boston then hop a flight to England for a post-Boxing Day and New Year's Special Rockin' Eve with Richard's family. Looking forward to the mince pies, a pint of John Smith's Extra Smooth, and plenty of Cadbury's chocolate.

Merry Christmas everyone -- and Happy New Year!
