After the last of my holiday headbangers tonight brings about another holiday hangover tomorrow, I fly south to Gasparilla Island in Boca Grande, Florida for some well needed sun, fun, and a fair amount of rum, to celebrate a Christmas, thankfully not, in Connecticut…




I’m willing to bet that after all these years, Barney and Beasley are dreaming of a white sandedchristmas too.
