Christmas Meme

Today's Saying

The thing about family disasters is that you never have to wait long before the next one puts the previous one into perspective. ~Robert Brault,

Today I thought I would share with you this meme I borrowed from Melli. Be thankful my answers are shorter than hers.

1. Egg Nog or Hot Chocolate? Hot Chocolate

2. Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree? Last coupler of years Santa just flew over left no gifts wrapped or unwrapped.

3. Colored lights on tree/house or white? White on tree, colored on house.

4. Do you hang mistletoe? Certainly not, never have. Next you’ll want us to hug.

5. When do you put your decorations up? After Thanksgiving when we finally discover where we put them last January.

6. What is your favorite holiday dish? Ham on a fresh baked bun.

7. Favorite Holiday memory as a child? Looking for Easter eggs. Wait! I think that’s the wrong holiday. I get confused. I’m old.

8. When and how did you learn the truth about Santa? What truth? He hasn’t become a terrorist has he?

9. Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve? If the grandkids are here and they beg long enough.

10. How do you decorate your Christmas tree? By hand.

11. Snow! Love it or Dread it? Hate it.

12. Can you ice skate? On ice, with skates– No. Sitting down with the WII Yes.

13. Do you remember your favorite gift? Oh! Yes I remember it. I will never forget it.

14. What’s the most important thing about the Holidays for you? Family

15. What is your favorite Holiday Dessert? Lemon Pie

16. What is your favorite holiday tradition? Christmas Eve Church service.

17. What tops your tree? A leaning star.

18. Which do you prefer giving or Receiving? Giving

19. Candy Canes: Yuck or Yum? Neither

20 Favorite Christmas Show? Old Scrooge Movie

21. Saddest Christmas Song? White Christmas – I hate snow.

22. What is your favorite Christmas Song? Away in a Manger

Mrs. Trumble and Chief Ican met this morning, early. They tried to come up with some way to find the child that is casting these odd little spells. So far we have seen Jack Be Nimble and Humpty Dumpty on the street , and John the Baptist showed up at Last Lutheran. This means nothing really bad has happened, yet. They are, however, afraid that something bad will happen and they suspect that their one day trip to the past and return was also done by the same kid.
Chief Ican says when Eugene returns they might be able to get Susan to come an help. She might know how to find somebody who can use magic like she does. Eugene should be back tomorrow or late today.
A child babbles in an ancient language
Поштові світло є цукровий очерет
When Chief Ican left Mayor Trumble’s office he noticed that the middle two light poles were now tall candy canes. They weren’t plastic painted candy canes they were real candy canes as tall as the light pole with a light on the end of the curve. It looks like a Christmas decoration.
As Chief Ican is walking back to the jail three deer come into town and start to lick one of the poles. The Chief wonders how many animals will be attracted until the spell wears off.

Knowing you hate snow - I will just leave you with this.

Currently it is -37C outside. In Edmonton it is -46C and with the windchill factor put in -58C.

Now - what was that you said about moving to Canada?

#13 -- I am willing to bet the gift was Jesus. There is nothing more precious that can ever be given to any of us.

And if it warms up and starts to rain those candy cane light poles are going to be the next disaster for Pigeon Falls!

This is a nice meme, Dr. John. But still too long for me but just right to read about you.

We have mistletoe hanging in the doorway between the breakfast room and the living room. A little boy came around selling it. Mrs. Jim fell for him. Generally I cut my own.

And I left my snow shovels in New Hampshire and Nebraska. Don't ever want them back.

Sugar canes for sure. It looks like the animals love them.
