Good morning everyone!

I read some posts. Glad to see that most of you are doing well. Very little evidence of a Christmas hangover as we are now two days into the first double digits of the year. January 11th. Yep. And, of course, the second weekend of the year is on the horizon, too!

It should be a fun one. Strangely enough, Kim is much more busier than I am this weekend. She has to help a friend prepare for a bachelorette tonight and then attend the bachelorette tomorrow night. They should have a great time! For me, tonight is somewhat open. All I have on my schedule is the gym. Normally, I would have to volunteer at the outdoor rink, but I believe that rain throughout the day and warm weather/rain throughout the weekend will close it until next week.

In regards to my knee, I had my first sign of positive news in a while yesterday. There have been times where I thought it was 100% before, only to be severely disappointed upon attempting to return to action. My doctor asked me where I was in my recovery. I said about 65%? He said I was around 70% and I should only require two more visits... as long as I do not have an unforeseen turn for the worse. More rehab for the rest of the month!

OK. I should return to work. I have a few things to tackle. Have a great Friday, everyone! The weekend is almost here.

Hmm, I haven't thought about a name for the car. That's an interesting idea, thanks!

Breakfast starts around 6:30 on Saturday morning, including eggs, sausage (smoked & fresh), bacon & biscuits. Sometimes I even slice a ham. And, of course, lots of COFFEE!

Let me know what time you plan to land the Lear jet so I can have traffic blocked on the highway.

It sounds similar to a movie that was discussed on one of the podcasts. There was an interview with the writer of a movie called "They Wore the Red Suit", or something like that. It's supposed to be a documentary about the people who become professional Santas. I've been looking forward to that one, too.

Here is the trailer for it-



The directors cut is available for purchase on their website now too-
http://thesantamovie.com/

They are trying to raise the money to finish the film for general release.
