Wow , and it all came out well. We all loved it and it was a great meal.
Dont think I want to eat like that for another year.
Well as to poor old Santa.
One of the residents in my village here took a dislike to Santa's singing and bell ringing when he was outside on my decorated patio with my lights one night.
Unfortuantely I did not hear this man come onto my patio, (glad I didnt) as was told there was some expletive language going on. Well poor Santa got smashed and lost his batteries, and had a broken leg and a broken nose. Next day I found one battery in the front garden.
He was a sorry site.
This man who did this was a bit enebriated I was told, and wanted to sleep. It was only 8pm but there are some people who got to bed early around here so I DO ? understand. But SANTA, UGH !!!! How could any one do that.The nearest neighbours are all deaf and I knew they could not hear my Santa, so he was having a great time out there singing and jingling away. I did go out every 15mins or so to see if it was bothering anyone, but missed this one. You might say I missed all the fun. Anyway the outcome was, I did put Santa together again, albeit a bit worse for wear, ( Like Humpty Dumpty), and next night when we had a huge Christmas party in our common room and I walked in with Santa playing his tune everyone clapped and had a good laugh, because of course the whole episode had been spread around the complex.
Needless to say the person responsible did not go to the Christmas party.
I just feel sorry that he has a life like that, but some people you just cant help.
When I related this story to my Daughter she laughed so much, so we had a funny coversation and so we got a laugh out of it all.
So insead of starting World War Three,
Just laugh and sing like Santa for another Year
and hope the people who cant make it
Bye for now
HAPPY NEW YEAR.!!!!!!!!
