I realize I've been kind of absent here. I just haven't had much to write about lately.

- Christmas was tolerable. My family always does a party on both Christmas Eve and Christmas. On Christmas Eve, it was over Uncle Boozy's place, where he opined on all the wonders that a Trump presidency would do for our country. The rest of the guests were less than impressed, for some reason. And as usual, Uncle Boozy was pretty thoroughly lubricated, but not to the point where he was staggering and slurring his words. Christmas Day, everyone came over my parent's house. Mercifully, they avoided the subject of politics on the second day.

One bright spot was watching my cousin's kid, who turns two next month, open his presents. Last year he was too young to be aware of what was going on. This year, he stood with wide-eyed wonder as he got a bunch of toys. I got him a bulldozer, my parents got him a keyboard, and somebody else got him a bus that played songs. He went home happy.

Have a video:

The kid is my cousin's son and uncle Boozy's grandson. I also have another cousin that just got married, that I think might be thinking about having a baby soon. So soon there may be another generation of rugrats running around.

My parents don't have any grandchildren, though my brother might be warming to the idea of having kids in the future.
