Merry Christmas!

I want to wish all of my followers and friends a Merry Christmas!

I treasure all of the special friends I've made this past year. May you have a peaceful and blessed holiday season, whatever you may be celebrating. As for me and my house, we'll be celebrating the greatest gift of all.

Merry Christmas and go easy on the eggnog!

I'll be around, but if not, I'll see you Sunday when I post my review of True Grit. (Because it's always movie season!)

And if you want to get me something really cool, go vote for my book trailer at Parajunkee!

I’ve heard good thing of this remake of True Grit. I hope it lives up to the rumors. Merry Christmas.

Anne R. Allen said...

A merry solstice celebration to you, too. I look forward to the True Grit review. At first I said "what the %&*!--you're going to remake the Duke?" But then the Daily Beast said it was great. Because, ahem, the novel it's based on is FUNNY. Love to find out if you laughed.

Go easy on the eggnog? You're killing me, man, killing me.

Roland D. Yeomans said...

I'm not sure there was a hue and cry to do another TRUE GRIT. All that talent, skill, and craft could have made an excellent original movie. But Hollywood loves its re-boots of old favorites as the recognition factor is already there.

I will be there with my vote for your awesome book trailer, Alex.

I wish you a Christmas week that is filled with love, healing, and happy surprises! Roland

Summer Ross said...

My manly man wants to go see the remaking of True Grit. He's a fan. After you review maybe I'll take him to it. Have a great Christmas!

Merry Christmas to you & your family! :)

I can't go easy on the eggnog as it's only available until early January. I love the stuff w/ added cinnamon & whipped cream.

Looking forward to your review of True Grit.

Merry Christmas!

I'd not heard about the remake of True Grit. I'll be back to check out the review. :)

The Golden Eagle said...

Have a wonderful Christmas! :)

Carol Fleisher said...

Merry Christmas to you too Alex. I'm curious to see what you think of True Grit. I'm not going to watch it because I think it's sacrilegious to even think of remaking anything John Wayne was in. I hope you have a great holiday! :)

L. Diane Wolfe said...

Merry Christmas Alex - and I've already voted for you.

welcome to my world of poetry said...

Already voted Alex. Good luck.

I do treasure all the many friends I've made mainly through Ato Z and your Dirty Dozen I wish you and your family a Happy Christmas and a healthy and peaceful New Year.

Take care.
Yvonne.

Melissa Gill said...

Patricia A. Timms said...

Merry Christmas to you!

I am relieved for the upcoming break I'll be getting up at my in-laws house in Pismo Beach. Guess who's book I'm taking with me? Oh yeah, that's your book I'm talking about.

I just got done voting for your book trailer. Best of luck! Can't imagine you not winning.

Karen Peterson said...

You have a Merry Christmas, too!

Can't wait to hear what you think of True Grit. I have a feeling I'll be seeing it this week, too!

Helen Ginger said...

Looking forward to your review of True Grit. Been thinking about going to see it, but I think our next movie will be Tron. Saw the latest Harry Potter yesterday.

All the best to you and your family...

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

You too, Yvonne! Need to do another blogfest in January.

Melissa, we're seeing it Thursday, but with Christmas I won't post my review until Sunday. Supposed to be really good!

Dezz, don't even think such a thing!! No, the greatest gift - God's Son.

RaShelle, that's because YOU rock!

Thanks, Wendy!

Chuck, it's supposed to be gnarley.

Patricia, I guess they stayed true to the book for this one.

Disc, we just might!

Patricia, thank you so much! I hope you enjoy it.

Helen, you're really getting out to see movies now! Tron was great - just a fun time and visually/musically stunning.

You too, Ruby!

Nebular said...

Merry Christmas to you too, Alex! :) You are one of the most wonderful persons I've ever met on the blogsphere, and thankfully one of my closest blog buddies.
Can't wait for your True Gift review, though Coen brothers have never been my cup of tea :)

Ricky said...

Merry Christmas. My your time with those closest to you be a blessed one.

I will be looking forward to that review. True Grit looks awesome. I love the Coen Brothers.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Thanks, Terry!

Lee, hotel internet sucks.

Teresa, I guarantee Santa is bringing everything my wife wants!

Thank you Nebular - same to you! And the Coen Bros. are an acquired taste, although I heard this is the least quirky of their movies.

Thanks everyone - look for the review on Sunday. Merry Christmas!

Gail said...

Merry Christmas to you and yours!

Jules said...

Yes it was a joy when you found me and I finally figured out what blog fests were!

I tend to need more nog this time of year :)

Carol Kilgore said...

May your Christmas be blessed, Alex. Eggnog and fruitcake always remind me of my uncle. He loved them both.

Looking forward to your review of True Grit. It's one I want to see.

Merry Christmas!

Anne Gallagher said...

Merry Merry and Happy Happy to you Alex.

You better watch out, they're predicting snow for our neck of the woods on Christmas. Yee hah!

Always a delight to visit your blog, Jules.

Carol, I bet fruitcake sinks in eggnog!

Anne, I'll believe it when I see it.

Not a chance Dezz, unless my wife wants someone to take care of me.

Elizabeth, I've heard, but not holding my breath.

Thanks, Stephen!

Merry Christmas everyon!

VR Barkowski said...

Merry Christmas, Alex! I prefer my eggnog in cookies and my bourbon straight. But I've always been a little off.

Have a great holiday! Looking forward to the True Grit review. Off to vote...

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Thanks, Cold.

VR, nothing wrong with being a little off...

Eric said...

Merry Christmas, Alex. I hope yours is wonderful.

Oh, and I'm hoping to find a certain person's debut Sci-Fi novel under the tree (which I have purposely not bought so that others can get it for me LOL). If that does happen, you can expect a post describing how much I enjoyed reading it (since I already know I'm gonna love it).

Take care, buddy!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Thanks, Eric - I'll be watching for that post. And I'll personally beat up Santa if the book doesn't appear under the tree Christmas morning!

Pat Tillett said...
