Season’s Greetings

In the midst of running around the moment, visiting family, exchanging gifts, and enjoying each other’s company. Had a great time yesterday seeing folks on my side of the tree, and today will be moving over to hang with those on Vera’s side.

One highlight yesterday was my brother giving lottery tickets out as gifts, and my Pop -- notoriously averse to the lottery as tax-on-the-dumb waste -- managing to win $50. I won $5, actually (the price of the ticket). Our successes failed to convince anyone that scratching is a skill game, though.

As always happens when we get to the bottom row of the calendar’s last page like this, I’m starting to think back on the last twelve months and the whole “So this is Christmas and what have you done?” question.

Seems like this year has simply flown by, really, which in one respect is probably a good thing as it means I’ve kept busy throughout. Am happy and grateful to still be writing about poker, for sure, even if I’d like to be playing it more than was the case even a year ago (never mind way back when I began the blog). And it does genuinely seem like prospects going forward are looking up for the industry as a whole, suggesting 2013 is going to be another busy one.

Have to cut it short here but did want to wish everyone a happy holiday and safe travels. And that your day is a winner.
