KK- On The Morning Before Christmas

This will probably be my first Christmas without being with family.

I have an older sister who lives in Arizona, my parents are both looking from above, a close cousin who always visits from Ft. Myers won't be doing so this year.

I've been invited to a virtual dinner by friends but to be truthful, I actually need to eat something so a small, cubed, young leg of lamb is in day 2 of being marinated and will be cooked on Christmas Day along with some rice and green beans. Simple and probably fitting for the year 2020.

I will be around for any hockey news but I doubt we will see any major news until after Santa kicks his feet up on the 26th.

Starting at 6:00pm today, the annual KK songs of the season will start and be posted 1 1/2-2 hours apart and run through Christmas morning.

Have a safe and peaceful Christmas and Happy Holidays too.

That was pretty good PK haha.

Hope you all are able to make the best of the situation.

Merry Happy, PK.  Thanks for spending your time with the 19 and your online family.  Hope everything goes stellar and you’re filled with the holiday joy of appreciation we all have for what you do.

The fact that it’s just seven days until training camp opens and less than three weeks until the 2021 season starts is probably the best present any of us could have hoped for in a year that just plain sucked.

So Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year to the entire KK family, but especially to you, Paul.

Don’t forget WJC on Christmas Day!

Got a prime rib warming on the counter for a long, slow afternoon smoke myself.

Merry Christmas everyone.
