You don't want to give her any more power...

Should dogs (and other domesticated animals) be granted citizenship?
Article here.
Abby is already cooking up plans. Forget democracy she will go for dictatorship.
All squirrels shall join the space program to be launched into space.
She will allow cats as she knows some of you actually like them.
But they must address her as 'Your Supreme Highness' at all times.

gnomeland security

The gnomes have updated their letter to Santa. They want one of these magnets to put on the metal front door to warn all that the gnomes are standing guard.
They are available at www.northernsun.com

The gnomes were informed

that, because of the younger family members, they needed a more appropriate Christmas picture. They made a gingerbread house for this picture and have asked Santa to bring more beer.

Nephew had a Rain Day

My nephews have never had a Snow Day - living in San Francisco all their lives but the youngest had a Rain Day yesterday.

My SIL's work lost power, Brother's did not. Power out all up the coast. 105 mph winds on Mt. Baker. It even went *around* us - shut down roads, closed schools and roads to the south and east of us. whew!

Pull tab to open....

Some of us, of a certain age, got to watch The Carol Burnett Show when it first ran. Loved every minute of it.
This time of year I always remember the 'pull tab to open' skit where Carol tries to open a soda and ends up trashing her entire kitchen.
Wrapping Christmas presents, getting this little or that little thing to do what I want it to, getting wrapping paper to stop trying to go back to its original configuration, losing the tape, the scissors, the tags. The family room looks like a paper storm hit it.
Thank you, Carol, for getting me thru the @$#% wrapping and mailing *fun*. Breathe deeply and pull tab to open....
