As we hurtle toward tonight's WITL Country Christmas Party, I've been reprimanded for an earlier blog post by my lovely wife, and proud Texan, Michelle.

Earlier, I had posted a photo of my wife and her friends trying to teach me "how to line dance". I have been informed by her that, in that photo, they were in fact trying to teach me to do "the Cotton Eyed Joe", which is "not just some line dance" but "the State Dance of Texas". A thousand apologies to all former and current residents of Texas.

                 Children! Shun him for the rest of the party!"
