Christmas Means is one of my favorite posts of all time. Here you will see Marigold, who passed in January, again, along with a new photo or two I have added. It’s good for a second look if you have seen it before, and if this is your first time here, welcome and enjoy! My Christmas post will appear soon as the last post of 2019.
Christmas Past shows a photo of Opie being a good girl resting beneath the artificial Christmas tree. Things had to change when Scooby arrived in the family. Christmas trees had to be removed unfortunately. We have other lighted decorations however which make us happy at night when they are illuminated plus an attractive gas fireplace.
Our Nutcracker Suite music box is the most expensive cat toy ever! (No cats shown)
When my father was only a child, he saved the holiday postcards he received. There is a large collection which are mostly valentines and Christmas cards. Today in honor of Thanksgiving, I present a postcard from 1921:
In the upper left corner, we see a “pilgrim” girl waving at the turkey, while she holds what appears to be an ear of indian corn. Bye, bye! To the dinner table with you!
Previously, we were complaining about having nothing to do around here. Instead of lying about, we decided to put up a Christmas tree and other holiday decorations. A small artificial tree was put together. Opie supervised the placement of the tree, and declared the position to be satisfactory.
We finally finished most of the tree decorating, but not all. There is no shiny tinsel. The cats like to play with tinsel and eat it! Tinsel is not allowed! There are a few more special ornaments I must find, and place upon the tree. Overall, Opie was satisfied with the results of our labor so far.
This does not smell like a REAL tree!
You need to add more dangling things at the bottom for me to bat around! (Will do!)
Why are the lights off?
I did not ask for the camera flash!
Thanksgiving Day we prowl about as the holiday turkey is being cooked. After we eat, we groom and sleep, while the humans watch football.
