Since I no longer know given current events on what's politically correct these days: Merry Christmas
Happy Hanukkah
Happy Holidays
Good Winter Solstice or, as has recently become the IN thing down here in Hurricane Zone Central:
FEMA'z Navidad (yes, there's even a song about it)

The boys (and Taffy who is on the sofa not shown in the cropped picture) wish you all happy and here they are doing what they do best these days:

And for your reading enjoyment:
'Twas de night fore Katrina (Cajun)
'Twas de night fore Katrina, when all tru da state Not a gas pump was pumpin', not a store open late. All da plywood was hung, on de windows wit care,
Knowing dat a hurricane, soon would be dere.
Da chilren were ready wit deir flashlight in hand while rain bands from da hurricane covered over our lan. And Mom wit her Mag-lite, and me wit my cap has jus filled da battub for flushing our crap..

When out on de lawn, there arose such a clatter. I sprang from da closet to see what was de matter. The trees on da terrace, and de neighbor's roof torn, we feared we'd be dyin' in dis terrible storm.

Wit a little wind gus, so lively and quick, I membered quite clearly our walls was not brick. More rapid than Eagles, her courses they changed!
And she whistled and wafted and surged all the same. Off shingles! Off sidings! Off rooftops! Off power! Down trees! Down fences! Down trailers! Down towers! On da street of New Orleans, she continued to maul. Screaming Blow away! Blow away! Blow away all!
As da wind ripped and tossed da debris tru de sky, I peeked out the shutters at the cars floatin' by.
So go to the attic my family did do,
With a portable radio and some batteries too.
And den in a twinkling, I heard on da set, The end was not coming for a few hours yet!
As I calmed down da kids and was turning around tru de window it came with a huge crashing sound.
A tree branch it was all covered in soot. De wind blew it smack-dab on top of my foot!
A bundle of twigs now lay in a stack
And my Livin' room looked like it was under attack. De wind how it howled, de storm very scary. Myself and my family were all too unwary.
Da dangers of hurricanes are serious ya know, dey are taken for granted as Betsy did show.
Wit da winds dying down and da danger beneath, I noticed my tool shed was missing its sheath. So I grabbed my last tarp, and nailed it on down, den I got in my car and drove into town.
Da traffic was awful and stores had no ice, my 5-gallon cooler would have to suffice. Generators was scarce, not one left in town. Dere was trees on the roads and power lines down.
FEMA was ready wit people to work,
Electrical companies came in from New York.
I sprang to da car, and gave my family a whistle,den away we all went like a Tomahawk missile!
You could hear us exclaim as we drove out of sight, "The heck wit dis place, Texas seem just right!"
Terri, Mojo, Luke and Taffy
* if you liked that, there is a very popular regional book down here entitled "Cajun Night Before Christmas" that's very entertaining. In fact there's a whole series of them such as "Gaston the Green-nosed Gator." No affiliation.

This is William Shatner's world. The rest of us just live in it.

I should hope NOT! I'd tell them you sent good thoughts but Mojo is on double seekrit probation right now for swiping a praline yesterday. I TOLD himself not to leave it on the end table and walk away from it when he answered the door! The strain of the temptation was just too much for Mojo to bear poor thang.

well, of course* it was. i mean, we're talking *praline here, not just some generic tid-bit. it was very cruel to tempt him thusly, as i'm sure he informed you.
helpfully,

Well, what actually happened was I had set my canvas lunch container down at nose level, slightly unzipped. I had brought the praline home wrapped in a tissue. Later, he was found with a shredded tissue stuck to his face,smacking his lips in ecstasy. It's my belief he never dreamed tissue could taste so damn good. (I also realized at the same time the boy never will learn that sound carries.)
The story does have a happy ending though.
The next day I told my praline benefactor what happened and she gave me THREE!
Then I got this person telling me on another froup about white pralines and she's so evil, she's got me thinking about making some batches of them myself. I've got the time since I don't have to return to work until the 3rd. DAMN HER!

ah, so this whole thing is actually your own fault, huh?

so, were you able to keep from laughing out loud in front of him? harriet gets debris stuck to her lips, and it cracks me right the hell up. which, of course, is not exactly the message one wants to give to a dedicated clowndog in such a situation, as it's guaranteed to reinforce the bad behavior. but, whatever, it's Teh Funni.

i dunno, it sounded like it already had one, depending on whose POV one takes. HTH!
The next day I told my praline benefactor what happened and she gave me THREE!

so, you win!
