Winter Words of Wisdom

T.A. Barnhart

I first received these wise words from a great American philosopher, Allen Sherman:

Ladies and gentleman
Take my advice:
Pull down your pants
And slide on the ice.

(And now you know the secret to Sarah Palin's success.)

What're you doing to stay warm? To enjoy the winter wonderland? To cope with cabin fever?

I'm thinking of celebrating Christmas this afternoon, just to make sure I get the full whiteness thereof. Sadly, being on painkillers, no hot rum drinks for me.

Be safe, friends, and enjoy the holidays, whatever the sky may be doing.

    i have no idea at all what that parenthetical means.

    You could celebrate Keith Richards' 65th tomorrow; works equally well with pain killers and rum!

    Good time to research end of tax year charitable contributions if you're so inclined. Maybe clean firearms, in case baby Bush is thinking of hanging around. I think I'm going to finally get around to making a video out of my 5 months of Comet Holmes pictures from last year.

    I first heard it from Dr. Sidney Friedman on MAS*H as he was leaving the OR. Perhaps Larry Gelbart was an Allen Sherman fan, because if Allen Sherman said that he definitely said it first.

    Staying warm outdoors? Layers. Cabin fever? Not applicable, as there's plenty of stuff that needs doing at the workplace. If you're among the ever growing ranks of the unemployed, my heart goes out to you. If you have a job, cabin fever should be the least of your concerns.

    I think you have just the right level of painkillers going on there, T.A. - just hover your mouse over the photo to read the caption. I'll have what he's having, except no surgery please.
