Holiday Cheer

Big Red Car here.

I am starting to get a bit vexed with The Boss.  Here I am in Austin and he’s in Steamboat Springs enjoying the weather.

Hehe, actually a balmy 72F here in Austin while it was -18F last night in Steamboat Springs.  So, I really have no right to complain.  I’m feeling neglected.  I miss The Boss.

Winter Wonderland

Well, apparently Steamboat Springs is a winter wonderland.  Snow, snow, snow, snow.

 Skiing in Steamboat

Well The Boss goes to Steamboat to ski and the skiing is good but the location of his joint is excellent.  Here are the snowy conditions in the ‘Boat.  Tough duty, eh?

The lift is right at The Boss’s back door and he is one lazy skier.  Don’t tell him I said that.

A Bit of Holiday Cheer

Well, The Boss says that he’s skiing but I am not so sure about that?  I highjacked this picture from his camera and I don’t know about that.

That looks like coffee with a bit of Courvosier, Kahlua and Baileys.  Maybe a bit of half and half to boot?

Try it, you’ll like it.

Stop and Enjoy the Season

 Please have a great Christmas and enjoy that Austin weather.  You deserve it.  You have definitely been good.  Well most of ya’ll!

White Christmas Bing Crosby

But, hey, what the Hell do I know?  I’m just a Big Red Car.  Be kind to yourself.



  • Having Tia Maria in our teas and thinking about your counter top pic. I think Tia Maria would fit in there 🙂

  • panterosa,

    I have not stopped by yet to say hello on your blog. Looks like you are having fun with it. Happy Holidays from a lazy reader on the couch in sunny NYC.

    • JLM

      Thanks, Panterosa. Hope all is well with you and the Kitty.

      Snowy here in the Boat.

      Happy Holidays!

  • The Debt counter is making me dizzy looking at it. See this related NY Times Op-Ed from Nassim Taleb:

    • JLM

      Good read. It is true.

  • JLM..

    Just found your blog. Nice!

    Have a great holiday. I envy you the snow and skiing.

    I’m spending this week thinking more, doing less. Working out, Writing. Museums and friends.

    Enjoy and a happy and healthy new year to you and yours!


    • JLM

      Hey, Arnold, Happy Holidays!

      This was supposed to be a secret for some time, didn’t want anyone to know that JLM had taken the plunge. Morphed from commentator to blogger.

      Happy New Year to us all of our friends.


    • Did you find it via engagio by any chance?

      • No, not this one but many others.

      • I found it via twitter. Glad he took the plunge!

  • Cheers to you and Mrs. Finch. Next, I expect to see you take her on a horse carriage ride like this:

    • JLM

      I am not sure Mrs Minch will approve of my hanging out with Mrs Finch. But if she is OK with it, me and Mrs Finch are going to take that sleigh ride.

      Merry Christmas to all!


      • You cracked me up! I was going to correct myself, but I’ll let it stand for laughs sake.

        • JLM

          Mrs Finch is very warm on a cold night.

          And when Mrs Minch catches me with Mrs Finch, Mrs Minch may get downright hot.

          Oh, well.

          • I know another Finch. I got my Finches and Minches mixed up! And that’s without any Kaluah, Courvoisier or Baileys.
