Holiday Greetings & A Progress Report

First, Happy New Year to all who will read this blog, wherever you may be. And I hope you all will have a healthy and prosperous 2013.

Second, I hope all of you had a merry Christmas/Hannukah/Kwaanza/Yule/Saturnalia/Festivus/whatever you celebrated earlier this month. I had a decent one. I spent Christmas Eve at my older brother's house with his family, his wife's family, my younger brother, his wife, and their son. 

Food was served, but I filled myself with appetizers and ate only one ham sandwich and no turkey sandwiches.

I also got a $5 gift card from Sears at part of an exchange.

Since Dec. 25, I've stayed around here and mostly gone out for errands and runs to the local library. I plan to stay in tonight because there is a weather advisory until 7 a.m. Tuesday; from 1.5-4 inches of snow could fall.  

It also will be amateur night for those who drink when intoxicated.   

But starting Wednesday, I plan to become more active and get out of my apartment and my city of residence.

One notable thing has happened between the last time I posted and now. I was awake around 1 a.m. Dec. 16 and had just peed when the phone rang. I thought Oh fuck what is THIS about? The only thing I could think of was that one of my brothers or a member of their families were in critical condition -- or worse.

Calling was a woman looking for a man with my true name. She asked me, "Are you X------?" I said yes.

She asked me if I had a sister named Michelle. I said I didn't. (By the way, I don't have a sister.) 

She also asked me about my cousin Philip Falls. I told her I don't have a cousin with that name.

She apologized about calling me at that time of night, but added she had bad news that he had to be told then.

I wonder if she ever contacted the man she was looking for.

I've also been trying off and on to delete some of my posts, but Blogger has changed the ways the posts are made and deleted to a more complicated process than the one that I was using when I was actively writing here. So I'll leave a lot more posts that I thought I would.

I've established on the net a site where I can let it all hang out as loosely as I want. I've posted a few things and have yet to post what I truly want.

So, goodbye until the next post, whenever that will be.
