Peevish Pen

Ruminations on reading, writing, rural living, retirement, aging—and sometimes cats. And maybe a border collie or other critters.

First Sign of Christmas

It just isn't Christmas until I hang this critter on the ficus. If you press his belly, he sings "We Three Kings of Orient Are."

OK, he doesn't actually sing. He neighs. He's a little hoarse—er, a little horse.

What? Not Christmas-y enough? How's this?

A "cartridge and a pear" tree!

The little horse isn't far from the pear.

No sense going out on a limb when it comes to decorations.

Keep it simple, I say.

I really like your ornaments, especially the cartridge in the pear tree!

Possibly overboard, but what the heck.Fits in with all the other crap in my house!
