Sing sing song sing a song

My favorite elf was about 5 years old that year.  We were watching "The Grinch" and she came sliding across the couch to snuggle in next to me.  Crossed her arms and looked at me seriously.

"You know, Daddy, they have this stuff now that you just brush into your beard and then you take a shower and all that grey will go away."  They beard was the first to succumb to age color variation, you see.

She was seriously serious.  So I bought a box of that stuff, wrapped it up and put it under the tree for Christmas morning.  From Santa.
And boy did she get excited that morning.  Not another present did she open, my hand was grabbed and off to the bathroom we went.  She applied it with studious care, if not with a concern for 'neatness'.  It was all over the place.  I still have that t-shirt I wore all flecked with brown.
I don't much believe in Santa Claus.... but the love of elves is very very real.

HO HO HO dee ho

Twas the week before Xmas
Ana all through the Burg
Not a sound was heard...
Nope, not a Word.

So I have been struggling to write a post about Christmas past and all that.... for almost a week... and all I ended up with is junk.

But that never stopped me before......
Anyways... things seem to be happening quicker than I CARE FOR...
Boy Wonder with the hoodie
Boy Wonder gotz home from Portland.... and then went to the UP with some buddies.... his Momma not all that happy with that, but he'll be around for another ten days.

..... he always makes things interesting. 
My daughter and I are looking forward to traveling to western Wisconsin's traditional Christmas eve 'flying of the cows'.
... and that's it.  I have spent all my money .... none left to buy even a scrap of snark.

So... for the holidays

if you can't be where
your heart is
be calm
be peaceful
enjoy all those whoz is here
and have a good beer.

Love to all who visit my page.  thanks&stuff
