It's that time of year again . . .

Glad we're all still here! It's been rather hard concentrating on writing and editing anything this week. I've made little notes, tinkered around, but mostly I am just enjoying this time with the kids—and that includes watching a lot of movies. I'm probably eating more than usual too.

Right now I have Scrooge open in another browser, the fabulous version with Albert Finney. It's available on youtube, and you can see it too if you'd like!




Also, I found on Youtube a 1979 radio production of A Christmas Carol by a comical public radio staff who seemed to be indulging in too much Wassail. It starts off innocently enough, but the liquor starts to kick in after only a few minutes. Pretty funny stuff! Try to give an entire listening to if you can. Part one:




 And part two:





I hope you are having a wonderful Friday! We finally had some snow here in eastern Kansas and personally I'm loving it. Now . . . I just need some fruitcake.

  1. Merry Christmas to you and your family. Just a small correction, Rachael is not my daughter, sometimes I wish she were as I have no children. She's a very dear friend that I'm blessed to have in my life. I wish we'd get some snow here, they keep promising and promising.

    1. Oops! Thanks for the correction, and Merry Christmas to you too!

      I hope you get some snow. The birds around here were very happy about it. We forget with all our running water how much they must be suffering this year. It was nice seeing them get a good drink.

  2. We have the fruitcake, and it's fabulous; one of Lady M's best ever. Today she will make yet more mince pies. This afternoon I shall go collecting Holly and Ivy for the fireplace, and tomorrow I shall buy all my presents as well as the Turkey. It's really beginning to feel like Christmas.

    But, please, no snow!
