Seasonal Stuff

Christmas Illuminations (55)

Every year he'd spend hours testing lights - buying bigger 'better' displays.
Him and the silly sod next door, competing like kids.

This year she'd 'helped' - it was just basic circuitry.

So for once she'd seen the point, she'd even counted down....
.....until he threw the switch and as his little face ........

lit up.......

She smiled.

Absent Friends

Spare a thought for the turkey

As Christmas draws near

Just whisper of cranberries

So that he won't hear

Don't show him the stuffing

It fills him with fear

And when speaking of menus

Don't make it too clear

That while you are munching

And swigging down beer

He won't be around

To greet the New Year
