Headmissy, abscess makes the fart go “Honda.”
As for what I got for Christmas: royally screwed out of squat from “blizzard Euclid.”
50-100 miles south and they’re acting like they were transported to an Antarctic observation station. Here, maybe an inch or so of fluffiness that will likely be gone in a couple days.
Like Claire-ee, my White Christmas is a fricking Monsoon! Steady rain, mixed w wind for 2 daze steady now. Got a glimpse of Santa, who left me some new books an a new phone, an he was wearin a pancho, + his beard was a white soppin, drippin mess. The reindeer raindeer weren`t too happy, neither…..

Bug-A-Salt gun. Get it? An assult gun. Really! It uses table salt to shoot flys and other bugs. Shoots the salt out like a shotgun.
Can’t wait for summer
Hey, I got from younger niece a beautiful decorated tea chest (small, but effective!!) full of Earl Grey, English Breakfast and such. Me, a tea lover … when in U.S., my drink of choice is Turkey Hill, really cold!
HeadMissy, take care of this tooth of yours!!

Being the Senior Warden and Verger (http://www.vergers.org/) in our parish, and being that right now we are without a priest/rector… I am in charge of ordering the services and making certain we have a supply priest to cover the services.
When we found out that Fr. Chris, a long time friend and compatriot, had returned to Colorado, I called upon him to serve. He jumped at the chance. SO!!! – My best gift was being able to serve with a priest and brother whom I love dearly at 2 services on 23 Dec…Christmas Eve festival mass, Christmas Day morning mass and at two regular services on 26 Dec.
Udder’n dat – We did have a White Christmas day and I was gifted with a fifth of Black Jack and a nice bottle of Pinot Noir.
Headmissy, Darlin’ y’all take good care of the worrisome toothsesses! (Might want to have the Asylum exorcised… there be some weird shite goin’ on there…..*cough*…yanno?)
Merry 2nd Day of the 12 days of Christmas and St. Stephen’s day (listen carefully to the words of the English carol: Good King Wenseslas) to all you porch denizens. May God bless y’all!
WOWWW!!!!! What a beautiful watch Headmissey! Tell us all about it, please. What size is it. Is it a kinda necklace or a wall hanger? What about the little bell?
The starfish are perfect too, but you will collect a zillion of em in your beach walks at the Asylum, bein as you are only 29 an sum fraction yrs old. Knowing you, there will be some magnificant mounting of Star fishes in the futuah; too; also………

Sondra – Ack! Our oldest son had an abscessed tooth – one of his top front teeth – a few years ago. Same thing: his face swelled up, he had a fever, nausea, and chills. He was most miserable, but the antibiotics kicked it within a couple of days. Hope you are feeling better by New Year’s eve!
Well, I got another day of life, such as we know it. I don’t really look at Christmas as a special day. It’s just a day. If I live through it, all the better, I guess. Kicking-off on Christmas would be kinda cool though… maybe next year.
‘Till then, I’m here and I’m queer, even though I’ve never even touched another man’s dick. I’m still here. I will make your life as miserable as I possibly can. It’s what I do.
[adjusts steam valve, removes gauntlets, shifts goggles to forehead]
Wow! That. is. beautifullll!
I’m with ColJ. Tell us more. How big is it?
Does JR know that somebody’s givin’ you jewelry?

Fed by son & d-i-l, time with grandsons and ex-in-laws that matter. Fed again by and time spent with remaining regulation family. Got to tell remaining regulation family that I now have 3.3 grandsons. Fed yet again by ex-in-laws that matter. Got news that childhood friend is “in full remission” from multiple myeloma.
^ I long for the daze when I just had a cavity. I was like 5 then, too.
My whining’s staring to annoy ME.

Sorry about the jaw trouble, that’s a fancy time-piece you got there!
My family is kinda poor right now for various reasons so not a lot in the way of presents but the time we spent together cooking and seeing old friends is worth way more than presents.
I did gift myself a new target 10-22 with a nice Leupold scope.
Get yourself to the tooth doc quick, an abscess can make you really sick if not fixed soon.

Finished a second Christmas with #1 daughter (expecting first grandchild) last night.
Got e-Books for my Kindle Touch and a Hobbit shirt from New Zealand. Also big-print glow-in-the dark keyboard.
