Musings & Thoughts for Sunday, December 26, 2021, or: To Blog or Not to Blog…Oh, Hell, Let’s Just Post Some Christmas Music Videos!


Hi, Dear Reader. It’s early afternoon here in Lithia, Florida on Sunday, December 26, 2021. It’s a mild winter day in the subtropics. Currently, the temperature is 77˚F (25˚C) under sunny skies.  With humidity at 62% and the wind blowing from the northwest at 3 MPH (5 KM/H), the feels-like temperature is 76˚F (25˚C). Today’s forecast calls for sunny skies and a high of 78˚F (26˚C). Tonight, we can expect partly cloudy skies and a low of 55˚F (13˚C).

‘Tis the day after Christmas, and all through the house….

Nah. I’m no Clement Moore. So…let’s not go there.

Well, it is the day after Christmas. That much is certain.

What’s also certain is that, yep, once again I went to bed too late (at 1:32 AM) and woke up much too early (6:25 AM). So I’m not exactly at my best right now – at least not when it comes to writing.

You’ll write better once you eat breakfast, they said.

You’ll write better once you’ve had three cups of coffee, they said.

It’s been a good two hours since I had my breakfast and drank the aforementioned three cups of coffee. I have a full stomach, which is good, but I don’t have any amazeballs ideas or noteworthy anecdotes in my brain.

 All I feel like posting is Christmas-related YouTube music videos. I’m too bleary-eyed and fuzzy-brained (despite all the caffeine I consumed earlier) to unleash my inner King, Ebert, or Hemingway.

So, yep, Unleash the hounds…er….the Christmas music videos!

And because New Year’s Eve is not that far away, I will toss in On the Beautiful Blue Danube from the Vienna Philharmonic’s New Year’s 2020 Concert.
