Here's a shocker:

Linda and Mary were up in the far north woods, out looking for a Christmas tree. They were all bundled up from head to toe, carrying their hatchets and a coil of rope to tie on and drag it back.

They had thought of everything. They were all set, but they couldn't find the right tree.

They searched for hours, slogging through knee-deep snow. The wind was blowing and the wolves were howling, but they persevered. Had to get that Christmas tree.

Finally, as the sun was beginning to head downward, one turned to theother and said, "That's it! I've had enough! The next tree we come to, we're going to cut it down, whether it's got lights on it or not!"

A recent bride called her mother one evening in tears.

"Oh, Mom, I tried to make Grandmother's meat loaf for dinner tonight, and it's just awful! I followed the recipe exactly, and I know I have the recipe right because it's the one you gave me. But it just didn't come out right, and I'm so upset. I wanted this to be so special for George because he loves meat loaf. What could have gone wrong?"

Her mother replied soothingly, "Well, dear, let's go through the recipe. You read it out loud and tell me exactly what you did at each step, and together we'll figure it out."

"OK," the bride sniffled. Well, it starts out, " Take fifty cents worth of ground beef . . . "

GREAT pics at that "Animals at Large" link, Cat! Thanks for that.

I loves me some egg-nog, too. I drink about a quart a day (with and without "adult" modification) during the season; it's great good stuff for us "weight-challenged" people. I wish it were available all year round, actually. And No... I won't "make my own." Too damned much work.

You're welcome Buck.
As for making my own eggnog, I used to watch my Grandma do that. I think that cured me of any desire because of the labor involved. But I gained a great deal of respect for her abilities.

I had no idea that George Bush's birthday was December 27! And when did it become a 'holiday'?

My grandma used to make us fruit cakes out of lard. Really sticks to your ribs....

Merry Christmas!

Wait a minute. Fruit cakes made from lard? How about a post explaining that?
