[Note: I'm taking the week off from politics and will be trying to acquire an iota of Christmas cheer. Somehow I suspect that the only way that will truly happen is if I drink it! LOL]
It's Christmas Week and since y'all are probably tired of all the shopping, decorating, and all the other assorted nonsense related to The Season. Soooo here's my Christmas gift to all y'all: three excellent groooaaaannnnnssss to help get you through!!!! Enjoy!!!!!!
Morris Crisp was very sad when his father passed away. When his mother
remarried to a retired Navy captain named Arthur Ness, and made Morrie
take the name of his stepfather, Morrie felt she was betraying the
memory of his father. After he grew up, and his mother died, Morrie had
Arthur committed to a nursing home and bilked him of his life savings.
When he was caught, the newspapers read . . . "Morrie Crisp-Ness fleeces Navy Dad!"
You should always test the goose's skin for doneness before "giving
your guests the bird" at dinnertime, because a soggy-skinned goose is
not only unappealing to eat but . . . it violates the spirit of Merry Crispness.
A wealthy yacht owner decided to give his crew a Christmas party in
port. He went ashore to round up evergreens, food, musicians and gifts.
When he returned, he found all the greens being installed, but on the
wrong ship. "Ahoy!!!!!" he shouted, running down the dock . . . "You're
treeing up the wrong barque."
Hope y'all are having a great day!!!!
Happy Holidays!!! (I hope this covers anyone I left out!)
