Upon coming home, I found a summons for Federal jury duty -- a petit jury being empanelled January 10th. Whee. (Actually, I find this kind of interesting, but the hassle factor may be nigh toxic, depending on how it goes.)
The Child and I are off shortly for dinner with my dad and step-mom, lillypond, her hubbie and the Niece, at lillypond's house. (My sister and I live a mile or two apart.)
Solsticial felicitations to you and yours, if my words don't reach you again this weekend.
