Pass the Wrapping Paper. . . and the EggNog?

Amidst all the wrapping
And Holiday cheer
Along with the Carols
Heralding Christmas is here
Let's all take a moment
To reflect on a year
The end of which is almost here

I can't help it. While thinking of keen gifts to give to family and FURiends, I am acutely aware that another year has breezed by. It almost feels like a tidal wave - and there is nothing that can slow it down or dam it up.
I honestly think this is what EGGNOG was invented for - to slow the waterfall of feelings of another year gone by. Not that I have even had EGGNOG. It is not a smart thing for a PUG to drink. BUT I have seen movies where folk have done some pretty foolish stuff while under the influence of that thick rum reeking yellow drink.
Why get wasted to forget? I prefer to celebrate - celebrate Christmas, celebrate family and friends, and celebrate each and every day for the wonder it brings.

You make Two of the most BEAUTIFUL pressie Packages we have EVER seen.

Now our Mom and Sister (Sarge's Mom) do like their Egg Nog... with just a HINT of Rum in it... More E.N. than Rum fur SURE. BUTT WE have had it... PURE STRENGTH E.N. and it is Delicious.

This year has gone by quickly. It seems the older you are, the faster time flies. I adore that picture and would love that present under my tree. ;-)
