  • It’s getting to be the holiday season. I’ve already got the “Gobbles, the Tasty Turkey” song going through my head.

    Yeah, I know. I’m alone on that one.

    By way of an explanation, I wrote a column last year lamenting the fact there are so few Thanksgiving songs. I think I thought of one last year. So I made up one, to the tune of “Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer.”

    Well, the holiday season is upon us again, and I do mean upon us. I viewed my first holiday commercial on Halloween night. Please, could they wait until November before they start reminding us to rush out and buy or, back by popular demand, use lay-away?
