Born in a Barn

For those of you tuning in expecting to read a FFF post, I’m sitting out this week.

Rather than bore you with a hundred rambling excuses, I’ve prepared a little eye-candy for your viewing enjoyment. Here’s a copy of the Christmas card Connie and I are sending this year.

Feel free to leave a comment. I should be back in the saddle next week.

  1. I’m a little surprised the sign doesn’t read “It’s a Goy!” LOL Great reflections for the season–both timely and reverent as well as being humorous. Thanks for the laughs and the reminder concerning what this Christmas thing is all about.

    Peace be with you and yours this Christmas and throughout the year to come.

    All my best,
    Marie Gail


  2. So you’re into the living Nativity scene, eh? Your Joseph in overalls adds flavor and very likely kept the chickens on their guard during the photo shoot. Happy holidays to you and Connie, Russell!


    • Only for long enough to take a picture. Pretty soon the chickens would start pecking. As for the overalls, Joseph was a carpenter, so this seemed the appropriate attire.


  3. Dear Mary and Joseph, and family, What a hoot – great picture of your family for sure. Thanks for including us in your list. I am helping Mike with Santa stuff, mostly shipping. Merry Christmas! Mike & Nan


  4. I love your Christmas card, Russell. Your family and friends are blessed indeed to receive one. May you and Connie be blessed this Christmas and throughout the new year.


    • One reason I posted it was to say Merry Christmas to all my blog friends around the world. Your encouragement and support means so much to me. I am truly blessed.


  5. Oh, what fun…you thought I was going to break into song, didn’t you? Hahahaha
    Love the Christmas card, and the hens add a lovely touch to the manger scene. Blessings to you and your lovely bride. Merry Christmas!


    • Yes, I was expecting to hear you chime in on Silent Night. Thanks for the kind wishes. Best to you and yours this Christmas season.


    • No, Liz. That photo was taken inside the condominium where Connie’s chickens reside. The only Photoshopping was the removal of an extension cord going to the star.


I'd love to hear from you

This is the blog of a woman who is seriously on the edge and I mean right ON the edge…no, not there… just a little bit further… further than that…no, further still…just a tiny bit more… just move slightly to the right a little…no, that’s too much…just move a tad to the left…that’s right, just there…now you’ve moved too far to the left… Damn, what part of the ‘on the edge’ do you not understand? Oh, and her matricidal boy genius, come devil spawn.

Sharing sarcasm, snark, and satire with the world...

Or the three people I guilted into reading this blog, whatever.
