      Love the last part "why do I even bother, she'll never read this".

      1. Reading this thing every year has become as much of a tradition for me as listening to Alice's Restaurant. I'm getting close to knowing all the words to both.

          Agree totally about it becoming a fond tradition (followed in Dec. by the story of the inflatable and Grandpa lol).

          But there is simply not enough wine for dealing with Marney, unless Clos du Bois is now bottling magnums.

            I'm thinking you need to fill -- and empty -- a Camelbak to get through that experience.
