Merry Christmas, Everybody!

The pumpkin pies are in the oven, filling the house with their wonderful spicy aroma.

Presents have been given and received with much oohing and ahhing all around.

There are plans for settling in and lounging in our jammies to watch more old movie favorites.

Soon I’ll be starting on Christmas dinner and getting that going.

But my day wouldn’t be complete without stopping to wish you all, wherever you are, a beautiful day.

Whether you celebrate Christmas or not.  You are a gift to me, and I am so grateful for you!
Enjoy this little ditty --- I guarantee it will make you smile! ((I love watching this guy – he makes me happy all day!!))

PS--- isn't he a brave guy to be seen in public in that ugly Christmas Sweatshirt to begin with? LOL!!

Have a wonderful day!

With Love From The Basement ---

  4. And to you, Bonnie! And thanks for being so generous and inspiring. All the best.

  5. About the joyful video -- I think it's a sad commentary when most people totally ignore him instead enjoying it, like the gal who high-five'd him.
