Today is the First Day of…


…the rest of your life? Exactly….but today is also the First Day of December which means Christmas music, holiday parties, magical outdoor lighting and indoor decorated trees, Santa sightings, frantic shopping sprees, too many cookies – not enough fiber, too much eggnog – not enough water, too many rum cakes – not enough veggies…too many reindeer – not enough sleighs.

Annual Cookie Walk in Montgomery, Texas

Ellen’s busy giving away the farm with her Twelve Days of Christmas, and Pretty is busy wondering why we aren’t in the audience for one of those days. I told her we would make that part of our financial plan for 2017. As a matter of fact, we can make that the cornerstone of our financial plan for next year.

So clearly in the spirit of the season, the president-elect is tweeting “we the people” our leadership gifts for the next four years.

On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me

a partridge in a pear tree –

 a promise to drain the swamp in D. C.

On the second day of Christmas my true love gave to me

two turtle doves –

(Breitbart Steve and Reince)

and a promise to drain the swamp in D.C.

On the third day of Christmas my true love gave to me

three guys named Mike –

(Pence, Flynn, Pompeo),

Breitbart Steve and Reince –

and a promise to drain the swamp in D.C.

On the fourth day of Christmas my true love gave to me

three billionaires and their Goldman Sachs adviser –

(Betsy, Wilbur, Donald, Steven),

three guys named Mike,

Breitbart Steve and Reince,

and a promise to drain the swamp in D.C.

On the fifth day of Christmas my true love gave to me

five Golden Tweets –

three billionaires and their Goldman Sachs Adviser,

three guys named Mike,

Breitbart Steve and Reince,

and a promise to drain the swamp in D.C.

Ah, the joys of the holiday season in a presidential election year. I can hear the bells going jingle, jangle – or is that my nerves.

Party hearty.
