    Things don't always work out the way you'd hope, and you've found yourself alone this Christmas. Me, too.

    When I was a little boy, I had some kind of Tony Stark for a dad. He was an Engineer, a musician, and the "life of the party guy." Because he was such a good saxophone player, he hung out with lots of jazz musicians. Every year, a band or an orchestra would come to our house for a cookout.

    My favorite was the Stan Kenton Orchestra. They came in two buses, and the house was full of guys horsing around and playing anything you could imagine.

    Here's a Stan Kenton Christmas medley for you to enjoy on your day alone:

    Why don't you go have a bowl of cereal? You'll feel better.

    Next year plan a trip to Las Vegas. The hotels are extremely low for like 10 days before Christmas through a few days after. Then it gets crazy for New Years. Merry Christmas. There are some who would envy you today.

    I'm with you friend.

    Except my family was crazy growing up so the holidays were never "Hallmarkesque".

    Now my sibs abandoned me to deal with my elderly parents. Oh yeah, that crazy psycho bitch I was married to left me and took my house and 1/2 my $ years ago.

    WHAAAAAAA! Christmas sucks.WHAAAAAAA

    We have on the phone with us, as well, Robert Higgins who lives in the neighborhood, and is on the ground and can see inside the van. Mr. Higgins...









    It sucks that you're stuck taking care of your parents.

    My family is not very nice so I spend it with all friends who are in similar situations. In NYC that is common.

    Merry Christmas, Vegas Girl !!!

    I might get out that way this year for the World Series of Poker. I'm a good player who doesn't play very often, but I might just enter one of the smaller events to play for the heck of it. I'll bring a buddy who is absolutely convinced he's a better player, but when we enter tournaments I'm the one at the final table. It annoys the heck out of him and I laugh on the inside. He constantly cites my luck in this hand or another.

    Truth be told, being the child of divorced and local parents, I always had six or seven stops on Christmas Day. It was too much.

    I'm gonna make a big plate of nachos and pig out later.

    Sounds wonderful and dreadful at the same time. I'd be torn between picking up riffs on my new strat or taking my ears out with the Red Ryder.

    Best wishes for an enjoyable Christmas to all.

    Probably, but I was a little kid so it's not as though I remember.
