Word is, it might actually snow in Sikeston, Missouri today. A white Christmas is a rare thing where I grew up, so some people — my mother being one of them — are pretty excited about the possibility.
Of course, we’re talking about two or three inches at the absolute most. If my mother ever dealt with real snow, her sense of excitement might change.
Today I just wanted to wish everyone a happy holiday. Like Sam said last night, I wouldn’t expect much news through the weekend, but I’m sure we’ll both be checking in from time to time just the same.
The number of kind of emails and holiday wishes I’ve gotten the past few days have been amazing. Thank you all for welcoming me into your world. Let’s all enjoy the holiday season and get ready for that next sacred day on the calendar.
Pitchers and catchers.
