  1. As Scrooge counts his money, his thoughts fill with greed,
    Crachit dreams about his family that he can not feed.

    1. Oops. I dropped the t. That should be Cratchit.

  2. 'Bah humbug, banish Christmas!'
    Scrooge,that old miser, cried.
    'Goodwill to you and all mankind,'
    Was Cratchit's sweet reply.

  3. No more 'Bah Humbug'ing,
    Swap grumpiness for glee,
    The spirit of Christmas presents
    Waits beneath your tree!

  4. "So here's the plan" said robin "I peck his nose you grab the wallet and run. Smile and nod if you agree Cratchit." #W8PAdvent @GeorgeKirk2

  5. Bob smiled. He thought about the look on Tim's face when he would see the present from the robin. @MotherGoutte #w8padvent


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.
