100 Days of Ties: Day 77 and the holiday blues dressed in red.

A staple: The red sweater. Lands' End Canvas, no less.

There’s a scene from an old Newsradio episode where, right before the staff of WNYX leaves for Christmas break, Joe, the office handyman played aptly by a young Joe Rogan, rips down all the holiday decorations stating, “Nothing’s more depressing than coming back to work after Christmas and seeing the decorations still up.” I couldn’t agree more. Th lights and wreaths and other miscellaneous holiday adornments only made me think about how long we have to wait until next year. Oh well, I suppose the longer we have to weait, the better it will be. It was a good holiday this year. Family, friends, crosswords galore, cash money, shoes, pots and pans, and plenty of smiles.Hell, maybe even next year we can add snow to that mix. As evidenced by this shot, we got none, and that thin layer of frost doesn’t count. But no fault of my fave Jennifer Broome – She reports, not doles out.

Hope yours was grand as well. It appears though I will be in Denver for NYE. Plans?

Aly Gator, Anton Glamb, and a final Christmas jam – Christmas in a Rock.

It’s good to hear feedback from my daily musings, whether it be mom saying she likes today’s tie shot, a new reader saying they’re been following awhile and to keep up the good work, the haters saying I should give it a rest and some of my beliefs are bass ackwards, and, most recently, an email from Anton Glamb. I mentioned him last Monday and how I am blasted back to the streets of NYC whenever I hear his music. So when he informed me that he was grateful for the writeup, I was pleased. But when he said he had a new track he wanted me to hear, I was even more stoked. Plus, this picture came attached to the note:

Anton and Aly wishing you a Happy Holiday Season.
