The Diary of a Nobody
: In what must be considered an upset, the renovations at the hotel appear to be done, Jerry plows the driveway at The Shire and Sparrow buys side dishes for Christmas dinner.

Or I could roll the dice and hope Neighbor Jerry does it for us…Long-time readers of this crap know Santa brought Jerry a fancy-pants plow last Christmas and he regularly plows our driveway for us…In fact, he’d already done it twice, once earlier in the season and once a couple of days ago, events I forgot to mention here apologies are issued.

On This Date
In 1776 – George Washington and his men cross the Delaware River from Pennsylvania to New Jersey a bit north of Trenton in the American Revolution. The river was icy and the crossing was not completed until 3am the morning of the 26th and Washington’s men did not get moving until 4am. Later that morning the Continental Army would launch a surprise attack on German troops fighting for the British, defeating them in what History refers to as the Battle of Trenton.

In 1971 – The Miami Dolphins defeat the Kansas City Chiefs 27-24 in two overtimes in the opening round of the AFC playoffs. Garo Yepremium’s 37-yard field goal seven minutes and 40 seconds into the second overtime gave the Dolphins the win, establishing an NFL record for Longest Game that still stands. The Chief’s Ed Podolak had 350 combined rushing, receiving and return yards, a mark which remains an NFL playoff record.

In 1971 – Melanie is at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for the first of three consecutive weeks with Brand New Key. It would be Melanie’s only #1 song and her second and final Top 10 hit. Melanie would later say Brand New Key was written in 15 minutes after breaking a period of vegetarianism at a fast food restaurant, noting the aromas brought back memories of roller skating as a youth.

must wait until the evening to see how splendid the day has been.
