retail news in context, analysis with attitude

As noted above, MNB is done for 2020.  (I'm also done with 2020 … but that's a different conversation.)

I'm going to take some time off and celebrate the holiday with my immediate family (though our son in Chicago is not traveling home - he decided to do what he felt was the responsible thing and not come home, and as much as we'll miss him, we applaud him for doing the right thing). 

There also will be books and movies and wine and jogging and long walks with the dogs.  And there will be a soundtrack, perhaps more relevant this year than in the past…

Through the years we all will be together

If the fates allow

Until then, we’ll have to muddle through somehow

So have yourself a merry little Christmas now.

To which I can only add … have a wonderful holiday, and safe and happy New Year … stay healthy … and I'll see you on Monday, January 4, 2021 with a fresh supply of news and hand-crafted commentary.

Sláinte!
