    The expression on that dog’s face! He seems to be saying, β€œIt’s come to this. .. β€œ. :). All the very best to all of you, too!

      That dog has been living with Pink for too long… It’s the “You’re wearing that… burgandy… really?… Oh no, you look… … ….You’re really wearing that?” look.

        That must have been like sucking lemons! But good for you for at least showing just how shallow, insincere and unscrupulous you truly are.
        I am sure Santa will appreciate your honesty, and we love you all the more for it!

    Morgan does not look impressed, Rudy looks very happy, & Bessie probably has the right idea! Thank you for all your interesting blog posts this year (even for the ones which were a bit too complicated for my muddled mind to fully understand/absorb).xx

        Not expense as much as space, what with the battle axes and animal hides, etc. Small apartment solution. You can get decent head stakes at Ikea.

        Helen, I am laughing at your reply to Mr. M. My husband and I were away (Hawaii first, then Australia) from October – December and one of his complaints is that he can’t get the food he likes. The first thing he did when he got back home to Nova Scotia was cook up a big feed of salt cod and potatoes!! (which were turned into fishcakes the next day) πŸ™‚

        Most of the time I am fine about the food here…especially the beef after suffering what the French laughingly call beef for twenty years…but at Christmas I would like familiar things!
        I can get salt cod here, in Lent…but thin, miserable scraps which Norway should be ashamed to be exporting.

        Believe it or not, we have a fish peddler who brings it right to the door, so we often have fresh haddock, smoked or salt cod, and I see hubby has picked up two bags of smoked herring . . . I think he’d rather have any of the above over lobster.
        Happy Holidays and may your taste buds be tantalized. πŸ™‚

        *finds this hilarious* Cats are definitely more likely to be creative in their communication; I knew someone who’s feline would wait until he slept, then grab his underarm hair with its teeth at the first opportunity and pull hard enough to make the poor sod howl in pain with a rude awakening when it was annoyed with him. I’ll stick with dogs. One peanut butter and sweet potato treat later and dogs are your best friend again. Cats have small, worn black books hidden with every slight ever perceived written within, waiting for a glorious day or retribution. *nods*

        Have you seen this, it’s brilliant. This is the work of a Deventer scribe, writing around 1420. Through the night in question, a cat had pissed on his opened work. Infuriated at the ruined page, he wrote:

        β€œHic non defectus est, sed cattus minxit desuper nocte quadam. Confundatur pessimus cattus qui minxit super librum istum in nocte Daventrie, et consimiliter omnes alii propter illum. Et cavendum valde ne permittantur libri aperti per noctem ubi cattie venire possunt.”

        [Here is nothing missing, but a cat urinated on this during a certain night. Cursed be the pesty cat that urinated over this book during the night in Deventer and because of it many others [other cats] too. And beware well not to leave open books at night where cats can come.]

    After seeing some views of your house, it is a lock that you are getting better than I. Even so, Sir Pink, I wish you the best of everything in 2018! Just as I think that those who enjoy and are good at parenting should have all of the children, those who appreciate that which is beautiful, should have the most beautiful things … they can afford. ;o)

    Those holidays are a funny business. The holiday was about celebrating the solstice long ago and was later hijacked by the Church, although nothing suggests that Christ was born in December. The tree comes from some ancient pagan traditions. It’s supposed to be about Christ (I don’t know if it ever was). But then Santa came into play and brought the consumerism frenzy. Christmas these days is more about Santa, deer, elves, snowmen, candy canes, etc. The Nativity scenes are rarely seen anywhere. And now we have a bunch of atheists wishing each other Merry Christmas. I am thoroughly confused. Most holidays have a specific cause for celebration – independence, remembering fallen heroes. But what exactly are we celebrating here? I guess, the answer is “nothing in particular. Who cares? We are just celebrating.” Fair enough.

    Merry Christmas to everyone!

      I celebrate holidays, literally: an extended period of leisure and recreation πŸ˜€ and at the end of the year that also means the wrapping up of the work year. I do my books (financial), I celebrate if there’s a bit extra money left over. I also eat and drink more than usual. Merry Christmas!!!!
