Merry Christmas to all! Well, that’s all I have for you this week/year. Happy Hour is taking a little break. But I’ll be back on January 4th with some new tales from the bar for your enjoyment.

As always, I thank you for reading this year. You’re the reason I do this. I am sure Phil would thank the readership too, but he’s up to his elbows in dirty diapers and probably hasn’t read Happy Hour since August, but we all love him just the same.

chutzpah: nerve, guts, daring, audacity, effrontery.

Have a Happy New Year from Happy Hour!
