‘Tis an Attempt to Make You Smile!

‘Twas the day after Christmas and all through the house,

Not a creature was stirring, the family was out.


Woke up at 6:00. Left @ 6:30 – Gone Shreddin. Love Kelly. Call meh for da plan. High 4!

The stockings were emptied, what remained were the hooks,

The only memory of Santa had been read in books.


With Roxy dressed up in her coat and a cap,

I settled down for a mid-morning nap.


With a jolt I woke up and discovered the time,

“What the heck am I doing, I must go online!

It’s been nearly a week since I blogged a post,”

And I thought of blog friends that I miss the most.

So I dashed out this letter in hope of some smiles,

To reach out to others across the miles.

And although this is lame and took a short time,

My wish to those reading is happiness in rhyme.

So enjoy your families during this special week

And I will catch up in 2013!


Don’t worry. I will catch up with you before that, but it rhymed really well and my toast is done and I need to get out to the after Christmas sales and Roxy is barking to go outside…

Enjoy the holidays!

What are you up to this week?

  1. Well, at least now we know where we stand. Family is obviously more important to you than your online friends and fans. Our family all happened to be out of town this past week so there was no dearth of material from me. Even my wife posted! Hope the rest of your holidays are filled with family fun. I’ll just be sitting over here in the corner reading an old magazine until your next post.


    1. Hahaha! This is really funny Paul.
      I hope that you don’t run out of magazines. You could run to the public library… 🙂
      I love that you got your wife into blogging thang!
      Have a great holiday week!


    1. Thanks so much Filbio! It was a silly little ditty! Okay so that is nothing I would ever say, but really fun to type! Hahaha!
      Merry Christmas to you and have a fabulous 2013 too!


  2. Thanks! Much the same here – the time between Christmas and New Year’s Eve always goes quickly, almost as quick as the time between Thanksgiving and Christmas this year. I blinked and it was gone! Up north in midwestern snow country – northern Michigan where my kids will get to board and ski and have fun, oh how I wish they could play the Rocky Mountain slopes. Have a Happy New Year!


    1. Hey! I learned something about time this year. If you break out of your routine every day, the memory will stick!
      I skied Indianhead one year when Jackson Hole didn’t get any snow. It was a blast!
      Happy New Year to you too Clay!


  3. I am working on “stuff” in my garage. Don’t ask me what “stuff” is. I’m a guy and as long as I am working on “stuff” you should accept that as a generous and complete answer.

    Happy New Year to all. Now go get some stuff done!


    1. It’s my daughter’s birthday today! My sister’s, son’s, and husbands was in November so I have been working on stuff for a while now! Tonight I am sitting down not doing anything, but laughing at Grumpy Cat memes. Don’t judge…. 🙂
      Thanks for coming by Jay!
      Happy New Year to you!


  4. I *liked* that you stopped by my site and left graffiti to prove it. I’ve seen you around on several sites, particularly B’man’s. Like his and yours, the comments are so thick that I often don’t leave one. If you ever have trouble sleeping, feel free to return for some soporific soothing.
