Inspired by my friend Mercedes Yardley, (you can read her newsletter here) I am posting a realistic Holiday Letter, not to be confused with the mocking one I posted a few weeks, or days, whatever, ago. All-in-all, I think we had a decent year, considering that it was 2017 and all.
The picture above comes from the LA premiere of the latest season of Mystery Science Theater 3000. We always enjoyed the old ones, and when we saw the Kickstarter campaign, we contributed enough to the successful effort to be invited to watch Episode One, Reptilicus, from the VIP section. Reptilicus is possibly the worst movie ever, but of course it is in competition with some pretty awful stuff. If you haven’t already done so, you should check out MST 3000, The Return, on Netflix. Season 14 is coming along, but you still have time to be caught up before it is released.
Tami has been working a lot at her law firm. She has participated in some famous cases, as well as some nobody ever heard of. Recently she was involved with the Wynn v Wynn settlement, and nary a news report about it was seen. Not sure why not.
Steve started driving for Lyft in July. He also keeps plugging away at writing fiction, and coordinating the Las Vegas Writers’ Group. He’s also on the board of Writers of Southern Nevada. He writes a bit. Oh, and he passed the Jeopardy audition, but hasn’t heard from them yet.
We have one animal casualty to report. Bob Katt has bone cancer in his right leg, and the prognosis is not good. He’s a very fine cat, soft as a bunny, and will be sorely missed.
In other animal news, Beauregard Katt grew up and the other cats quit letting him eat first. He was confused, but acquiesced. Georgia had a blood tumor removed from her tummy. Emmy grew into a furry pig after Beau grew up and quit chasing her around. Kitty the Forest Cat managed to avoid being shaved for this year. And Sonny, fka Mister Sunshine, continues to be just about the nicest cat I’ve ever known.
We also visited London in May, wearing ourselves to frazzles in an eight-day trip. We heartily recommend Virgin Atlantic for flying to England. The return trip, especially, was positively enjoyable.
There you go. Why not publish a realistic newsletter of your own? Won’t cost you nuthin’!
