Christmas is officially over.

Christmas is officially over.

Okay. This’ll be my last Christmas thing here. (Maybe.) A friend gave me these awesome ornaments last week, hence the untimeliness of this post. But aren’t they… awesome?

The only complaint I have is that the Family Truckster should have “honky lips” spray painted on the side.

It’s the warmest time of year
Your Christmas whiskey means good cheer
A woozy smile from ear to ear when
Your Christmas whiskey time is here

One of my contributions to the family’s Christmas dinner was to supply the booze. This year I gave something new a try: Yukon Jack Jacapple. With it’s blend of spice and apples, it was a Canadian whiskey everyone - young, old, male, female - enjoyed. For real. I wouldn’t drink it every day, but for the holidays it seemed right.

I also brought a case of Magic Hat. I’m not saying that I chose that particular beer because their G-Thing ale was exclusive to their winter packs, but I’m not not saying that, either. It, too, wouldn’t be my regular thing, but the gingerbread beer was a nice Yuletide treat.

I say it every year around this time and I’ll say it again now: Maker’s Mark has the coolest swag.
