First of all, let me wish you all a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, a wonderful New Year–et cetera, et cetera, et cetera…(sorry, I had to add that last part. My favorite line from the classic Yule Brenner characterization of the king of Siam in the classic musical The King And I.) Now, on to other business.
You are in for a treat tonight. Not only am I going to give you the next chapter in Twenty-Five Days Of Christmas, but I am going to post exclusive stories here. Never-before-in-print, these stories were started on paper but never finished. We’ll see how many I can get done before visions of sugar plums call me to bed.
