Now before you go saying "how in the hell could you leave Arlie with that big beast Foster?" chill out a bit. In this year of many troubles and heartaches for so many Americans, Foster and I are just fine. We have a nice home, big backyard, a sucker dad in Ed who treat shops at least twice a week, and family and friends who make life worth living. So as we wait an extra day to get at those stockings, I want to ask each of you and my fans who you forward my blogs to think of others who are suffering this holiday season. A poor economy, job losses mounting, an unsafe world and still having to wait for Michelle's husband to start righting the ship have left many not feeling too good about this holiday. So I will leave you with the words of one of my favorite artists, Jewel, and her song "Hands" -- because we can all make a difference and as she states so simply "in the end, only kindness matters."
Happy Holidays my friends. Arlie, Foster, Ed and Steve wish you the best for 2009!
