* I finally met my mother's boyfriend. With his gentility, I understand. It reminded me of when I first met hammercock's family. Good man, but around my mom's height. Was probably intimidated by the towering presence of me and my wife.
* Still trying to get in touch with my father to visit him today.
* Resolved the issue with dropping off a rental car in Ft. Lauderdale before leaving in Miami.
* Haven't resolved when and how to get back to Boston from D.C. before I return to work next Monday.
* My wife and I will be transferring to a hotel in Miami later today.
* All holiday shopping has been finally completed.
* This is the moment where all festivities converge, so I say Happy Chanukah/Merry Christmas/Happy Solstice.
