A cup of kindness yet

We always throw a Boxing Day party at our house, but for the first time in decades, our schedule this year made it impossible. Nobody in the States knows what Boxing Day is, and our guests usually wind up calling it “Boxer Day,” (mental picture of a bloody Robert Di Niro doing knee bends in the corner near the drinks) but we always have a great crowd and a great party. We missed seeing everyone this year...but we’ll be back!

I’ll be away and without easy access to computer for New Year’s Eve and much of January (though I’ll try to post occasionally), so I’m extending early wishes for a memorable Hogmanay and a peaceful new year. May your celebrations be as sober and elegant as mine.

And there’s a hand, my trusty fere!
And gie’s a hand o’ thine!
And we'll tak’ a right gude-willie waught,
For auld lang syne.
