An Old Rubber Mouse

Hello one and all!

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Yule, Happy Kwanzaa and happy Holidays!

It’s the Christmas time again and, whatever you celebrate (or don’t), it’s a time of giving, of family, of joy, and most of all: presents!

Now, don’t worry; I’ll keep this short and sweet. I know you’re all busy and I don’t want to keep you too long. So I’ll just give you a quick JE update: We have a new feature! It’s called The Honey Pot, and, according to the blurb, it’s an online erotic magazine style blog, where any member can post content, like blog excerpts, snippets of stories, pictures, news or anything you think noteworthy, and it’ll be published on the front page. It can be found here

Now, then! Last year I posted a poem for the Christmas post. This year, I’ll do the same. Before I do so, I should point out that they’re not written by my hand, but I don’t know who originally wrote them. They’re just ones that I’ve known for a long time. Now …

May your holidays
Be happy days,
Filled with love
And laughter.

And may each day
Bring joy your way,
In the year
That follows after!

Last year, I posted The Night Before Christmas. This year I’ll post a slightly different version:

A Puppy’s Christmas

It’s the day before Christmas
And all through the house
The puppies are squeaking
An old rubber mouse.

The wreath which had merrily
Hung on the door
Is scattered in pieces
All over the floor.

The stockings that hung
In a neat little row
Now boast a hole in
Each one of the toes.

The tree was subjected
To bright-eyed whims,
And now, although splendid,
It’s missing some limbs.

I catch them and hold them.
“Be good”, I insist.
They lick me, then run off
To see what they’ve missed.

And now as I watch them
The thought comes to me,
That theirs is the spirit
That Christmas should be.

Should children and puppies
Yet show us the way,
And teach us the joy
That should come with this day?

Could they bring the message
That’s written above,
And tell us that, most of all
Christmas is love.

That’s it for this week! I hope you the very best of days!

This is JV – signing off.
