Winter Dreams

I wished for a high-def flatscreen with satellite and 264 animal channels.




I wished for yoga lessons, a mink blanket, and a course in anger management.



I wished for a new tennis ball.



What did we get? Vitamins. Merry, Happy Christmas everyone. Hope the holiday is sweet, and may all your pills be wrapped in honey. p>

  7. Do you guys all share your vitamins? My cousin used to lick the sweet coating off of ours, leaving the 'pill' part for us older kids. Somehow I can imagine that in your household...
    Merry Christmas to you all. We have a plethora of tennis balls. Wonder if I can throw one as far as Altadena.

    Hugs all around.

  14. Merry Christmas to you and your brood, Karin (I guess my buddy was too busy disapproving for the group photo - I understand.).
    You're an amazing, amazing wordsmith and I feel lucky to have you for a friend. I hope Santa was very, very good to you.

  15. What's up with that?!? Next time they'd better stay up and corner the fat guy in the red suit on Christmas Eve.

    I'll be enjoying a quiet evening snuggled up with my furbabies, enjoying a cold beverage and a chick-flick tonite.

    Merry Christmas!

  19. Boz has a present for Phoebe which I keep forgetting to give her (regifting). He got a pork chop bone for Christmas. He's now passed out at my feet. We're one happy family.

    Who needs TV when you have a dog?

  22. If your balls got lost in the mail, maybe you can order them from Pete Schwedy's Season's Eatings. He was on TV again last night promoting his balls.

    WV: unisit - I think this means that all your balls hit the chair at the same time.

  23. I'm pretty sure Mr. E has been way into the Christmas cheer! I"m LOL!

  24. A day late, but Merry Christmas, AH. Lovable lookin' animals you've got there, vitamins or not.

    wv: tiests

    related to all the TENNIS ball jokes?

    ReplyDelete
  25. Mr. E,
    Just watched Pete on Youtube. I"d forgotten how funny that was. Baldwin is a better actor than I thought. Never cracked a smile. Moi? I"ve laughed till I cried. Thanks!

  27. Hey, it just occurred to me, what's a typical hike for you--in minutes or miles? Don't worry, I won't be keeping up. Just curious.

    And you imply that Vandy has some attitude. True? Named after Vanderbilt Univ.?

    I confess I'm (again) glad Christmas is over. Anyone else?

    ReplyDelete
  28. Vandy appears to have an intelligent and spirited eye. Kisses for her, too.

    Everyday is Christmas in Minnesota...

  31. I came & went on THE DAY and didn't leave my mark! Darn WV...

    I still have this image of your equine pet in a downward facing dog position... can't shake that one.

    Hope your Christmas was merry & bright.
