Merry Christmas

For those who celebrate, Denise and I wish you a Merry Christmas. We're spending the weekend dogsitting. Just John the Bassett Hound and Charlie, a golden doodle, and us, thinking of how everything will change in such a wonderful way next year.

Here's my favorite traditional Christmas song performed by Bob Seger.

David Cranmer said...

Thanks, Sandra. I'm very appreciative of "Under the Sun" and Calliope Andrews. We had a good 2010, amiga. Merry Christmas!

David Barber said...

Have a great one, David. The ones after this one are going to be fantastic!!

All the very best to you and Denise and I hope 2011 is good to you both.

Little Drummer Boy - Great choice.

David Cranmer said...

Thanks again, David.

It was a pleasure making your acquaintance this year (or has it been longer?) and enjoy the many stories you wrote and I enjoyed reading. Merry Christmas!

Just heard this song by Ray Charles on a trip down to Vons for some last minute Christmas groceries and "cheer."

It's been great getting to know you this year, and I look forward to all the events that lie ahead for you in the months that come. You will share, or course...

Merry Christmas.

David Cranmer said...

Likewise, Ron. And yes, I will. The merriest of holidays, amigo.

Leah, Merry Christmas to my many friends from the north country.

Naomi Johnson said...

Have a Krispy Kringle, David. Blessings to you and yours.

Oscar said...

Best wishes for a very Merry Christmas, David.

David: Here's to wishing you, Denise and the eventual addition to the happy family, a very Merry Christmas.

And speaking as the father of soon to be 10 year old daughter, you are so doomed. :D

David Cranmer said...

Thanks, Naomi. Your reviews of so many books in 2010 was appreciated as well as your support of BEAT to a PULP. Happy Holidays!

Gracias, Oscar. I hope Santa stops by your house. NORAD is tracking him over Amsterdam at the moment.

G, Oh, I know. :) But I can't wait. Have a top weekend, my friend.

Randy Johnson said...

Merry Christmas to Denise and you. And the dogs.

David Cranmer said...

Thanks, Randy. Having them around makes it extra special this year.

And another Merry Christmas to you from Denise.

Cool. Puppetoons.

Ah, Little Drummer Boy. This is, to me, the one song that Chicago really nailed. It is their version that I want to hear and it is their horn lines I "hear" whenever I listen to another version. Segar's version was my favorite until Chicago's. Here's a live version, not as good as the studio one, but you take what you can get for free on the internet. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cMRnBP5nF8I

Merry Christmas, David!

Alan Griffiths said...

Merry Christmas, David. Thanks for all your stuff here and on BTAP throughout 2010 - great writing and great reading.

Best, Alan.

David Cranmer said...

Evan, The vid is just ok to me but those vocals seal the deal.

Scott, That is a fantastic version by Chicago. No two ways about it.

And thanks for all the help on "Melanie" this week. Between you and my wife, you made Edward A. Grainger look good.

AC, Thanks and thank you for All Due Respect in 2010. The crime fiction world needed this kick in the ass.

Merry Christmas, Alan! And I hope you have another successful writing year in 2011.

Barbara Martin said...

Merry Christmas to you and your family, David. This is a time of good cheer however one spends it.

G said...

Hey-lo.

Just a quickie question for ya. I gather the book didn't drop at Borders?

Reb said...

Have a Merry Christmas David & Denise.

David Cranmer said...

Thanks, Barbara. Wish you and your family all the best.

G, You originally asked me about Barnes and Noble (I thought) and it is featured in some of their brick and mortar stores and (cheaper) through their online site. It will be available through Kindle soon but I'm thinking you want the beautiful print package. I hope that helps.

Thanks, Reb!

G said...

I did, but for Christmas today I wound up with a gift card from Borders.

Go figure. I mention to the wife and family that B&N or Amazon would be nice and that Borders was a very distant third.

Oh well. We shall keep on trying to find a way to get my hands on a copy.

I am if anything, stubborn.

David Cranmer said...

Don't worry, G.

Hopefully there will be a Round Two and Three.

Once again, Merry Christmas!
