Greetings, my fellow port-swillers!

It seems to me that there are a great many more cars sporting reindeer antlers and red “noses” on their radiator grills this year than there have been previously.  I must say that each such car looks more ridiculous than the last.  One car had the “nose” stuck on its hatchback.  I’m not sure if this was a waggish commentary or confusion about basic anatomy.  Made the car look like it had a case of piles.

This weekend we received a holiday card and an extremely long family “news letter” addressed (I swear I’m not making this up) to “Mr. & Mrs. Robbo T. Portswiller, or Current Resident.”  The woman is a local real estate maven and I assume she was simply using her biznay labels.  Explains the gaffe, but I’m not sure it excuses it.
