A Cautious Man

Sunday Night Springsteen
Christmas Eve edition, so it's posted a little early.
Christmas is a time to get the family together, maybe to gather everyone around the piano.
This video is from a performance we attended in November of last year, the last night of the solo tour.
I've Got Contacts Deep in Mexico ...
... and lots of other stuff, as well. The Cautious Family is doing something different for Christmas this year. We're traveling to the Yucatan - first, a few days on a little island off of Cancun, to celebrate Christmas in a little Mexican village by the beach. Then, a few days in the interior touring the Mayan ruins - we thought of this even before we heard about Mel Gibson's "The Passion of the Mayan", or whatever it is he calls his new movie.
We thought we would be there by now, but there was a slight problem at the airport yesterday - simply put, not getting on the plane. There was a lot of that going on, as it was crowded, planes were over-booked, etc. Then we tried a stand-by (why, I don't know) later that day. We did not get on the plane, but apparently our bags did.
We're heading down later today. We'll get there late, but we'll get there. In the meantime, everything we packed (shirts, shorts, shoes, beach reading and the Cautious Daughter's contact lenses) are, with any luck, waiting for us at the Cancun airport.

So This Is ChristmasAnd What Have You Done?
Well, I have done not much in the way of posting.
I'd like to say that I've been hip-deep in political activity as part of the Great Wave of 2006 - but that would not be true. I had some little involvement, and a lot of that was with local issues.
Luckily, things came out not too bad, nonetheless.
As I've read back over my occasional thoughts here, I realize that my hopes for what people should do, have exceeded my own contributions. I don't know if that will change, or if posting more here would actually be the best way to change that.
But, what the heck, as I wrote in the first post here, it beats just shouting at the television.
While not posting, I have been house-cleaning over in the "People I'm Reading", in the sidebar. It's a representation of the things I'm interested in looking over on the web.
I'll see how things go in the new year.
