Hours of entertainment await me thanks to several of the Christmas gifts I received on Saturday. My sister sent a Fandango gift certificate that will allow me to take my wife and kids to a movie this week. She also sent Bruce Springsteen’s new CD of old songs, “The Promise,” which I am loading into my MP3tunes Music Locker.
Murder most foul and murder most civil were both represented. My son gave me a paperback copy of “Dexter by Design,” the fourth novel in the series that is the inspiration for Showtime’s “Dexter.” One of my brothers-in-law sent “The Lord Peter Wimsey Mysteries: Set One,” which I watched on PBS with my parents when I was young.
My wife saw something on my wish list that captured her fancy. She gave me “The Paul Lynde Halloween Special” on DVD. It features a plethora of pop culture figures including KISS, Witchiepoo, the Wicked Witch of the West, Pinky Tuscadero, Florence Henderson and, of course, Betty White.
