The next time someone asks me that, I’m going to reply:
“Sure am! I’ve got my shotgun loaded and ready.”
Ho ho ho.
No, I’m really not that big a Scrooge, I just hate trite queries like that when asked by total strangers who don’t give a dead rat’s ass whether or not I am ready for Santa. Or who even know if I’m Christian, Jewish, or Druid.
Fa la la la la.
But as it happens, why yes, I am ready for Santa. I’ve wrapped all my gifts. Okay, actually I’ve slopped them into gift bags and jammed some tissue paper in on top of them. Lucy helped with the tissue paper, so recipients of my gifts will get tissue paper with tooth marks and kitty drool on it.
Lucy’s Long-Lost Brother?
Who is this handsome boy?
This is Shaku, who lives with Blythe in Iowa City. Blythe’s husband, J T Adams, drew the following Christmas card featuring Shaku modelling a knit hat and scarf because of Blythe’s knitting.
Isn’t that a beautiful portrait? Thanks to Blythe for sharing!
Lucy is quite worn out with the excitement of seeing what could be her long-lost brother!
The cowl, she is finished.
The hat, she is blocked.
