Another Annual Christmas Letter!

The entire team here at portfoliolongo.com wishes you a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and a prosperous New Year. This year Annyth, a Senior Advisor, came up with the letter, inspired by well over 2,500 interstate miles. The letter was read aloud to the team members and their spouses/partners at the Holiday Party.

Note: More to come as our eastern migration materializes.

A new friend, Alani

Alani’s one of four beautiful dogs, including Caula, a Miniature Dachshund; as well as Shiloh and Nova, Toy Labradoodles, who are sisters. There’s a cat too, Hula, a loyal Tabby. Now back to Alani, AKA Lani, Alonzo, A-Lonzo, who spent a lot of time on my lap. She’s a Mini Labradoodle offspring of a Rare Red Labrador and a Poodle.

By the way, Annyth and I are stopping off in Tucson, AZ to visit family, pictured below. Lilia, on the left, and Tracy (my niece), on the right, along with about 60 other un-pictured people, were celebrating the 18th birthday of their daughter, Makena.

Oh, one more action shot of Alani:

What a wonderful visit. Annyth and I love you guys!!

Demographic Quicksand


18 minutes in Sketch Club.

Speaking of quicksand, take a look at this 1967 performance by comedian Jackie Vernon. Some of you will be old enough to remember Jackie Vernon and his use of state of the art technology in his deadpan stand-up act, which in this case revolves around quicksand.

The Sunshine State?

This outrageous stunt!

Oh, and shit like this, too, constantly!

It must be miserable for those who embrace pluralism to live among those who support these hollowed-out, shit-for-brains, walking carcasses.
