A quick look at the blogs I follow tells me that people are moving on from the holidays.
I feel like I'm in this little time warp, because just days after the ball dropped in Times Square, I found myself catching our boat, while underway for Corpus Christi and spending the next 3 days at sea, without internet or news.
I was still digesting my holiday meals as I climbed over the gunnel of the tug, and still haunted by the images of a Philadelphia New years Day tradition called, The Mummers Parade.
There is no way I can explain to you what the Mummers are about ( see Google ) but I can assure you, you have not seen anything like it, anywhere.
And you should be thankful.
It is the one thing about Philly that I am not proud of, but I've watched it every year since I was a kid.
It's like a car accident. You just have to take a look. I can't explain my reasoning or the parade.
So today I sit at a dock back in Corpus Christi Texas, 8 days after the Mummers stutted down Broad Street in Philadelphia, still feeling some holiday cheer, so here is my last holiday post.
I spent most of the holidays doing research.
I wanted to find out if watching people exercise on TV was at all beneficial to me physically.
So I honkered down on the couch and watched as many football games as a human can possibly watch in a 2 week period, while eating food prepared for me by various members of my family.
And the answer I came up with was, it definitely is not beneficial physically in any way,
but it is a heck of a lot of fun.
Here is just a ......taste.......of what I had to deal with.
My normal bowl of oatmeal
was pushed aside for the holidays
I hope everyone has a great 2012.
