Don't faint ....... It's me!!

YAY!  We have made a card and just wanted to pop up to wish everyone Yuletide Felicitations! It has been quite a year one way and another with lots of "stuff" that The Staff  (aka TAT) has had to deal with and it has taxed her limited brain cells to the max! 😐

But you don't want to know about her! 😼 I have been very busy keeping things up to scratch around here πŸ˜‚   As you know there is always much to do to keep the humans in order and I have had to marshal the troops in order to accomplish this.....

Yep! All present, but not necessarily correct!!

Anyway, moving on! Ahem! 😸 *clears throat* ............

A Festive Pome

It's at that time of year,
When families do gather.
It's so much fun - break out the rum!
But please don't tell grandfather!

The children play and laugh with joy.
Their little faces beaming.
Then daddy steps upon a toy,
And everyone is screaming!

Grandma chokes upon a nut,
She coughs and splutters loudly.
Someone slaps her on the back,
The nut emits profoundly.

We wish you a happy Christmas.
We hope it will be merry.
But if the rellies get too much,
Start on that case of sherry!

Wishing everyone a terrific 2018

  10. Darling card and it is so good to see you (even if Mom DOES play WWF with your Mom!) Mom usually doesn't say much when she plays that game cause she is obsessed. Love, Cody catchatwithcarenandcody

  11. Austin, we actually dropped by yesterday to see if you had been around. It is thrilling to see you. We miss you bunches. You need to stop by when you have time and meet our new baby brother, Sawyer. Our humans are crazy...they just keep adopting kitties. We wish you a joyous and blessed Christmas, and we all hope to see more of you in 2018. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy and Sawyer

  12. So glad to get your card, Austin ! It is good to hear from you again. Sounds like my year has been a bit lie your humans ! Enjoy the holidays and the New Year !

  13. Merry Christmas! It's good to hear from you. That poem sounds like every one of my Christmases past, minus the alcohol.

  14. Austin, we were just thinking about you the other day. Great to hear from you. Wishing you and your human a very Happy Christmas...and Happy New Year. (The mom was binge watching The Crown on Netflix and she found it really cool that the English say Happy Christmas, not Merry Christmas like us Americans say. So Happy Christmas!)

  15. Nice to see you. Very nice card. Merry Christmas and a happy healthy new year to you all. XO

  16. It's lovely to see you. Merry Christmas and all the best for 2018!

  18. Austin! How nice to see you at holiday time! Marshaling the troops is a BIG JOB but you can do it....and in fine form too I'd say. We hope the holiday is merry and perhaps full of sherry (or the kitty equivalent anyway). Here's to a fabulous new year as well.........hugs to you and your Mom!

    Love, Teddy

    Thanks so much for the support when Mr Buttons had to go over the Bridge. It was very sudden and he was a big part of our family. He was our families official greeter and never met a stranger only new friends. We wish you all could have met him.
