I heard Christmas music today that made me feel old. just knowing who Mel Torme was, popular in the early 1960s, makes me feel a bit of a relic. Perhaps it was due to my mother playing his music in my formative years — before I discovered The Who and Led Zepplin. Yet that memory lead me to an Internet article about a church where I once lived celebrating its bicentennial this year. And the artist whose home I lived in at the time has been dead 81 years; however, the thought that four decades have passed since I last visited the Cape makes me feel old again.

Why "notdonner" for my 'nom d 'guerre'? When we decided to add the dog, Comet. to the household, we didn't change his shelter name, but also couldn't remember it. Since it was the Christmas season, I thought of Santa's reindeer: not Dasher, not Dancer, nor Prancer... not Donner, etc. I don't know too many who are not dog-men. I have often eschewed politics in favor of talking about dogs, existentialism and everyday perspective as one of the dog-people. Not that I don't like cats, I do. But cats tolerate you, while dogs enjoy having you around. While a vice-president of the New York Mets (MLB) organization, and an attorney in New York share the same first and last name with me, I have no greater honor than having served my country as a U.S. Navy Senior Chief.
