Another benchmark in this thing called life marches on

Well, assuming the world does NOT end later today, this Friday show will be the final PhilCast before Christmas. On Christmas Eve Monday WHBY will be playing Christmas music, which will continue through Christmas Day. Both Reggie and I have off the day after Christmas, so we'll be back at it on Thursday, Dec. 27th with a Pack Yak among other things.

I want to wish all of the PhilCast Family a very Merry Christmas! Slow down. Spend time with the people that really matter in your lives.

Mrs. Biggest Name and I will be hosting my small family on Christmas Eve. You've heard at least one of my sister's kids on the show, Joey the UW-Oshkosh grad who has moved out to L.A. where he is working as a production assistant for the ABC TV series "Wipeout". Joey's connection to the media means we share something in common and I look forward to hearing his stories about living and working in Hollywood now.

But you have not heard Joey's sister Callie.


She too is working hard toward graduating from UW-Oshkosh, but I don't hear from her much. Graduating from college soon?

Heck it seems like just yesterday we were posing with her at her high school graduation!

College? Really?

I was informed this week by my sister about a new development in Callie's life...that she would be bringing, gasp, a BOY to our family Christmas Eve celebration.

A boy?

When did this happen?

Some times I imagine what I would have been like as a dad. I don't think that boy would want to find out! Time marches on and there's nothing you can do to slow it down. A boy? My little Callie?

You know what would be really funny (but I'd totally get 'Philled' by Mrs. Biggest)? I could see the gang arriving on Christmas Eve, young Tanner all wide-eyed at meeting family members for the first time. Then I would just start doing that Saturday Night Live skit with the kissing family members! Totally freak the kid out right?!

MERRY, MERRY EVERYONE.
