A Man Who Has Nothing In Particular To Recommend Him Discusses All Sorts of Subjects at Random as Though He Knew Everything

Merry Christmas, Baby

The Heir, the Spare, and Mrs. King and I would like to wish all our friends on the Intertunnel a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Because I don’t really know you, I’d be more than willing to testify that you’re all the nicest people in the world. It’s only fair. You don’t really know us, but you’ve mistaken us for interesting people. I hope this makes us even. I am beset by doubts on that score. I have a hunch that the Sippican family is making out on the deal somehow. After all, I’m certain we’re not interesting. You might be nice.

  1. May I inject a note of dissent? If'n y'all weren't interesting, I and many others wouldn't stop by to see what kind of mischief y'all are up to. AND, as I've said before, it's a good thing words can't get pregnant, because YOU, Mr. Sippi, have a way with words. I ain't nice, but I can fake it purty good. Your boys made us a nice gift, and I 'preciate it! Thang yuh ver' much!

  2. Merry Christmas to my frozen friends. Oh yeah, also let's have a wonderful 2017 – it could happen, stop laughing…

  3. I'm from Florida. Most all my life. You live in Maine. That's crazy. IMHO. Which makes some of the things that happen in your life interesting. Oh yeah, and Merry Christmas and a Happy (and warm) New Year!

  4. I'm thinkin', we ought to have a New Year's song about now. I'm thinkin', that non-union duo in the attic could write a good one.
