  1. Cor, what a splendid snowman,
    So frosty firm & fat,
    I'll have that splendid scarf of his
    & pinch his woolly hat

  2. With his new scarf and hat Mr Crow felt confident enough to ask smart Miss Magpie out! @MotherGoutte #w8padvent

    1. He'd be taking her somewhere where they can eat... he does a great shuffle dance in exchange for food!

  3. The gift arrived with festive trappings soon removed by my unwrapping
    At first light of dawn, when quoth the ravern 'Wrap up warm'!

    Too long tpo tweet I'm afraid, I may be back to this one.

    1. Ah! He certainly likes to wrap up warm... apparently his feathers are TOG 24!
      Thanks George.

  4. He stared at the others decked in costumes, realizing he had misread the “dress up” request.

  5. Knit 2, purl 2 says the crow,
    Finishing the last row.
    See, l've got it down pat,
    I've made my own scarf and hat.

  6. also... thank you Jennifer and Debbie... Camelin is very flattered he's been written about.

  7. The haughty penguin sniffed,
    The haughty penguin sighed.
    Truly he loved Christmas,
    But kept that fact inside!

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.
