Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas ( or Chris-twyste), everyone!

( and may Santa and the 'gods of comedy' be generous to you all! )

I found this on Red's blog and stole it. LOL If I could have sent this out as Christmas cards this year, I would have been VERY tempted! Consider it my card to you!

But if your tastes lean more towards the traditional, here's some folksy Americana updated for 2020:

"Grandma, we're here! And we brought presents....
and maybe Covid."

Tonight is our traditional Polish Christmas Eve celebration.......scaled back and missing people who will have to be visited later and more safely. The setting is small, but hopefully all will go well. Covid paranoia is sticking me like a demon's pitchfork whenever I try to just relax and enjoy a holiday I have difficulty with even without pandemic infusion. As such I think I will celebrate the birth of comedy goddess, Rhyetwyste, (whom I have just decided was born ironically on December 25th.) with the sacrifice of a well-roasted, soon-to-be-ex-president. Yes, the Trump jokes will ring out like Christmas Bells tonight!......accompanied by generous cocktail lubrication. ( for more on Rhyetwyste, please refer to the previous post.....but if you are in a hurry, assume Rhyetwyste, if not the inspiration for the first mistletoe image, may well be the lady pictured in it.)

Still I am not blind to the other gods of the day. I am fully aware of a deity who is recognized by far more people than any of the gods of comedy. So, I am quite willing to share the day and even give top billing to that upstart kid from Bethlehem. It's only fair. So Merry Chris-twyste to all, and to all a good chuckle!

A classic Kliban gem.

    1. Thank. I'm alive. A lot has gone on and eventually I will share, but for now I am taking a break from things. I'm OK. Rosa and I are also OK. It has just been a bit of a whirlwind of shit that we have had to get through......and it's not over yet.
