I'm pretty sure it says "Drink more Ovaltine"
It's "pea-can", man.

Halloween is over without a peep, at least in my neck of the woods, Thanksgiving next.

Last year my first Christmas sighting was a few days before Thanksgiving.

Sticky thingey that holds the paper shut on my Jimmy Johns sandwich said "Merry Christmas" thus the war on Hanukkah begins.
"Try SCE to AUX."
Yeah, me and an electrified atmosphere ain't friends.

No more Christmas. It's over stayed its welcome. This year it will be replaced by Codger's Day.

Happy Codger's Day.

Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.

I seem to recall you posted that before.

So that means it's a tradition. :)
