Thus Ends Our Blogging Year

NOTE:  Camels not to scale.
And a sailor tying his shoe was probably not part of the original nativity.

"...Said the shepherd boy to the mighty king
do you know what I know?
In your palace warm, mighty king?
Do you know what I know?
A Child, a Child shivers in the cold. 
Let us bring Him silver and gold,
Let us bring Him silver and gold..."

Not for nothin', how 'bout bringin' the kid a frikkin' blanket?

This brings an end to the 2012 Blogging year as Penwasser Place won't resume operations until 2013.  At which time we'll bring you hilarious observations on life and insightful commentary on the human condition.

Or the normal crap you've come to expect.


Merry Christmas and Best Wishes for 2013!

  5. Aw I'm going to miss your posts for the rest of 2012 but it's been a great year for Penwasser Place and hopefully 2013 ends up equally as good. Merry Christmas to you and your entire family Al, have a great one buddy and don't get too drunk!

    1. I'll be visiting everyone (like you're my unfortunate relatives), but I won't writing any new posts until next week.
      Don't get too drunk?
      Define "too" drunk.

  6. I was thinking the same. What good would silver and gold do for a freezing child? Warm the kid up, why don't ya? You call yourself a shepherd!?

    Merry Christmas, Al Penwassser.

    1. He could've probably used gold to buy a few blankets. But, frankincense and myrrh? Not so sure.

    1. I bought the printer at Walmart. Hope I can pass off some bills as true tender.
      Otherwise, I'll have to rely on scratch-offs at Wawa.

  12. I hope you had a great Christmas, and have a wonderful New Year!

    That picture looks just like the nativity outside the Catholic school I pass on the way to work. Yesterday on the way to work, there was a dude sitting inside the nativity wearing only his undies, while someone else took photos....

    1. That is awesome! I took this picture while I was a student at the Naval Air Station in Millington, TN. I'd pass by it daily and thought it would be a hoot to take a picture of me tying my shoe in it. Sort of a warped "Where's Waldo?"
      No, I have NO idea why tying my shoe factored in. Probably better than undies though.

    1. Apparently so does Mrs. Penwasser.
      I think she's insane.

    1. I did and I hope you did as well. I didn't have nearly as much to drink as I feared. Then again, New Years Eve is coming.
      Yeh, I'll probably be asleep before midnight.
      I'm crazy that way.

    1. I was, too. Just a little, but sick nonetheless.
      My holiday was fun, though.

  16. I can hardly wait for 2013. Let's get on with it. When I was in school, people said I used to come in and say, "I can hardly wait for tomorrow, cause I get better looking every day." (I maybe said it once or twice but I doubt every day, like they said) One day a teacher came in wearing a T-shirt with that phrase on it. Said it was in my honor. Ha

    As I said, I can hardly wait for 2013.
    Have a Happy One, kiddo.

    1. 2013 is going to be fantastic because I will...uh...um...hmm, come to think of it, I can't remember why.
      But, I'll turn 55. And I have a good joke for when I do.
      So I have that going for me.

  17. Yeah, a blanket would have been a better idea!

    1. As I've grown older, I've really come to appreciate a warm blanket.
      And socks.
      And getting up everyday.
