Happy Holiday Season! Saturday December 22, 2007Posted by gingerbreadman in Friends.
But I fear that the tale doesnt fit modern times.
What is a kerchief? My dad wears no cap.
He snores the whole night, no way its a nap.
Hell be flying in here on a sleigh. Yeah, RIGHT!
When I was much younger I believed all that stuff,
Now that Im older I know its a bluff.
I sneak down the stairs to watch HBO.
Nothing is stirring, its quiet down here.
Security’s on so there’s nothing to fear.
Someone is coming, sneakety, sneak.
And then as my heart leaps up to my throat
I see a fat man in a funny red coat.
And takes from his pocket a tiny gray mouse.
He says, "Ho, Ho Ho, I truly believe,
There must be a mouse in each Christmas eve."
My gosh this jolly old guy sure is fat.
He looks up. He sees me and gives a big smile.
Says, "I came to see you. Lets talk for a while.
That Santa Claus comes on each Christmas eve.
Youre a big girl. Your minds filled with doubt.
Its simple, without me the joy is left out.
A smile on your face, eyes sparkling with glee.
Dont you remember the thrill you felt then?
With a little belief you can feel it again.
The rest of their lives I live in their heart.
If you are a youngster or wrinkled old guy
You still can hear sleigh bells ring cross the sky."
And there on the driveway stand eight cool reindeer.
They all nod to me and then snort in chorus,
"Whos this pretty girl now standing before us?"
As the big burley guy crawls into his sleigh.
He says, "Its my new team, a real with-it crew.
I’ll let Captain Cosmos give their names to you."
Im Cosmos, theres Awesome, Brucie and Narley.
Head Cat is Santa, the North Poles his home,
We see him all year cause we hang out in Nome."
Tap a short rap and give a "high hoof."
All turn and shout, "Tonight reindeers rule.
The eight of us wish you a crazy cool Yule."
But believe in the basics." As he speeds out of range.
Then I hear repeated, as my willing ears strain,
The words I now love, my favorite refrain.
But The Story, dear folks, is not overrated.
Throw open the window, and rejoice in the sight!
"Happy Christmas to all and to all a good night."
The best gift I’ve ever given Tuesday December 11, 2007Posted by gingerbreadman in Friends.
I couldn’t be any more happy with the gift I got for them. Those roses are CANDY!! Gina was a dream to work with, and I know it wasn’t because we were already friends, she gives this kind of wonderful service to every customer at http://GBees.com . I told her how much I love what she came up with, and she’s as much concerned with how Aunt Tickle and Uncle Chuck love it as I am…and more interested in how they like it than she is about how much I love it. THAT is customer service!
I have no doubt my beloved Aunt and Uncle are going to be bowled over with their gift. They know it is the thought that counts, and not only did I work to think of something special for them, but GINA worked her butt off to make it a special gift, beautifully done, not only to my specifications but her own.
Now I know where to go any and every time I have a special gift to give. Something not only from MY heart, but Gina’s as well. What more can you ask for in giving a gift to someone you love than to have someone work so hard to make it everything you as the customer will love but also the receiver will appreciate and be thrilled to get?
Gina can be reached at http://GBees.com for all your wrapping, gift basket, cards, labels, invitations and other goodies you could ever want. Custom, quality work for a great price, made with care and consideration.
AND she didn’t want me to blog this until after she and I both knew if Aunt Therese and Uncle Chuck liked the basket or not. Please. I’m the customer, and I adore what she did. I feel so good about this gift…I haven’t been so excited about giving someone a present in ages.
Thank you, Gina, so much, for all you and your husband did to make this gift special. I hope your Christmas is as special as you’ve already made mine, allowing me to do this for two special people in my life.
