Dear Santa, Please Bring Snow


Dear Santa,
I hope you and the Mrs. are well.
All year my behavior’s been swell.
When you come in your sleigh
I’ll have cookies and hay
For you and the deer on Christmas Day

There’s not really a lot that I need
For only one thing I plead
If I may be so bold
To ask for some cold
From now until the year has grown old

If you could see fit to bring
Some snow from now till Spring
It would bring great joy
For each girl and boy
It would be better than any ole toy

Just wanted to let you know
I know you have to go
You have many toys to take
One final plea I’ll make
Please bring lots of snow

(No snow, yet, y’all) This was December, 2009. *sniff*

I’m not really a poet
Yes, I know it
I only had 5 minutes of time
Anywho, hope you like my rhyme
;)

Go Tell It On The Mountain

What are your top ten destinations?

Meet Me at the Palace

A while back, I posted a few shots of pieces of art by Fernando Castro Pacheco that are on display at the Governor’s Palace in the city’s main plaza – Mérida Yucatán, México (Hallie, Mama and I were there in 2009).

I thought I’d share a little more of the wonderful murals and Governor’s Palace with you.

Some of the 31 enormous works are not true murals, because they weren’t painted directly onto the surface of the walls.

Stalking Carlie


At least this is, I’m sure, how Carlie felt after Hallie let Lilly’s leash go. I’m positive she’s happy to be feline, since she detests doggies, and she can quickly climb to escape them. She’s very prissy and princess-like. She thinks she deserves to be spoiled and spoon-fed, and I suppose she is. Well, she’s spoiled, anyway…

You’re Always On My Mind, Chattanooga

…you’re always on my mind.  I’m so sorry to say we won’t get to see you this year.  Maybe next year, my old dear friend.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and have much to be thankful for!

Have a fabulous Friday, and good luck to all you Black Friday shoppers out there.  I’m sitting this one out.  Not in the mood to get rammed with a shopping cart again, by a crazy lady with a running start, nor wait in line for an hour or longer, nor deal with all the insanity that reigns on this craziest day of the year.  Nope, I’m doing most of my shopping online this year.  ;)

Happy day!  Love ya!  *smooch*
