Hi kids.

I'd like to wish you all a merry shortest-days-of-the-year time, as well as a happy it's-freaking-cold-outside season. Thanks to all of you for being supportive and charitable throughout the past year or so.

You might be interested to know that I'm wearing suspenders. Convertible suspenders. They can be adapted to either clip (with toothy bass clips) to pants or button to pants-with-suspender-buttons. Today, I'm wearing them buttoned to my German (Austrian?) Army surplus pants. I don't wear this combo all that often, since, you know, suspenders look silly. But in these festive weeks, we all do strange things.

Anyway, take care of yourselves.
