Well, my fellow port swillers, time for ol’ Robbo to quit loafing about and start getting Port Swiller Manor ready for some light routs and revels to usher in the new year this evening.  (Per ancient custom, we will be entertaining the Former Llama Military Correspondent and his lovely and talented family.  Also per ancient custom, Mrs. R is being extremely vague about how many other people she asked “just to stop by” so I have no idea how much food and drink to get in.)  I will see you on the other side.

In the meantime, pray charge your glasses.  Bumpers all round and no heel taps!  Here’s a happy and prosperous new year to all of you with three times three!  Cheers!
