  1. Forget the swirling snow outside
    The gifts beneath the tree
    Let's cuddle up for Xmas
    Just you, dear Pup, & me

  3. Sniffle, snuffle, Merry Wishmas-
    A girl’s for life- and not just Christmas!

  4. Slow falls the night snow-
    To the twinkling wink
    of the Christmas tree.


  5. "I think I'll call you Snowy," said Eliza, as the squirming black ball of fur covered her cheek with lick-kisses #w8padvent @melgreen73


We love comments and really appreciate the time it takes to leave one.
Interesting and pithy reactions to a post are brilliant but we also LOVE it when people just say they've read and enjoyed.
We've made it easy to comment by losing the 'are you human?' test, which means we get a lot of spam. Fortunately, Blogger recognises these, so most, if not all, anonymous comments are deleted without reading.
