Well, well, here it is the day after Christmas and I'm at home chillin'!
Last night, I actually went out for Christmas dinner at Saddle Ranch Chop House on Sunset Blvd. My reservation was for 7:45 PM. After valeting the car, I walked inside the joint and it was JAM-PACKED!!!!!!!!!! Honestly, every generation known to man was represented! I saw babies, children, young adults, folks in their 30s, 40s, 50s and even 60+!!!!!
After dinner, my friend, Donald, and I headed out to hit a few bars. Yep, bars were open on Christmas night. We stopped at three of 'em and drank at two! I'll say this much about myself: whenever I know I'll have a couple drinks, I drink TONS of water while I'm at the establishment. In fact, I pace myself by having water with each drink.
I have aged out of partying at one of my former favorite spots, The Abbey. Well, I've aged out of partying there at night, but early afternoons/evenings are fine. You know, "mature" folks need to be in bed by 10 PM! Ha!! I was there late last night, so I got a good view of young people doing what young people do. Hell, what I used to do as a young person! God bless 'em. God bless 'em! :)
Tomorrow, it's back at my volunteer gig with the elderly. It'll be great to see them and find out how they're enjoying this holiday season. Being in their presence isn't a "job" or a burden. It's a PRIVILEGE!!!!!
A privilege I'm soooooooooo THANKFUL to have been given!!!!
