I still get excited on Christmas Eve. There’s over 40 of them in the memory banks and I think the effect is cumulative. I’m especially excited to be completely done with shopping as of about 8:15pm Sunday night. Mrs. Poteet’s stuff is even wrapped. (There’s a joke sitting inside that sentence somewhere, but hey-it’s Christmas!) I’m also-barring sudden, extremely unforeseen weather-off the clock. (As opposed to Off The Cuff.) I just spent an hour recording weather updates that will be heard today on the five fine radio stations who help put the presents under the tree every year. I won’t be doing any live reports today or tomorrow, which means the alarm clock can kiss….me under the mistletoe. Hope you have a chance to dial it back also.
