Hey, Mom! Talking to My Mother #168 - The Grinch

Hey, Mom! Talking to My Mother #168 - The Grinch

Hi Mom, In an attempt to catch up, (still behind on posts as I am typing on Dec. 26th for the post for the 22nd), here's a t-shirt reprint from 2013.

I am involved in my own Grinch experience as I embarked yesterday on my annual listen of an audio book of "A Christmas Carol," this year a version narrated by Simon Vance.

T-shirt #282 - The Grinch

What do I really need to write about The Grinch that has not been written already?

This shirt is a gift from my in-laws, Mike and Sue Creager. How they knew I did not own a Grinch shirt is a mystery to me.

It goes without saying that like most of America I adore Dr. Seuss and the Grinch. I have read and seen How the Grinch Stole Christmas at least 50 times but probably more.

I could clutter today's entry with additional content, but I want to have a short and sweet one.

In two days, I have seen two movies -- The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and American Hustle -- at the new Alamo Draft House. I finished two books -- Dune Messiah and East of West. I spent quality time with the wife and our Satchel boo-boo puppy.

I am not feeling grinchy, though, because I am blessed. I feel luckier than anyone on the planet for such riches of love and happiness (and a cancer free body). I am sending vibes of love to those in need.

I am not done with the Christmas season. Work prevents too much preliminary enjoyment and anticipation, so I linger with it. I am pleased that my wife put up our tree on Thanksgiving weekend. But one year, it stayed up until late March (that's on me not her). The season gets busy, you know?

So, not so much extraneous content. Just enjoy the season. And what's more enjoyable than the Grinch (and a couple other related items that come up in the search). And so, three Grinchy videos as well as one by Aimee Mann and a fifth that Aimee Mann covered but here is done by a great children's choir plus, finally, a sixth: "Christmas Time is Here."

Talk to you tomorrow, Mom.
