WELCOME TO THE 2005 HOLIDAY SEASON!!!

Recommended Posts

Good Morning To You, My Gentle Friends,

 

The Holiday Season for 2005 is here, My Lords and Ladies!!! . . .

 

Well, we all ate too much Yesterday, at the Thanksgiving Feast at Our Imperial Country Club . . .

 

GOOD!!! . . .

 

That's what Thanksgiving is all about!!! . . .

 

I hope that Everyone Enjoyed Themselves!!! . . .

 

NOW, we have the Opulence of the Holidays!!! . . .

 

Regardless of the Faith that You Practice, My Lords and Ladies, the Holidays are a Gift from the God of Your Heart and Mind . . .

 

This Gift is to be Treasured, Loved, and Shared by All!!! . . .

 

Remember that the Season is a Time of Reflection, of Joy, and Peace . . .

 

Regardless of Your Faith, Tradition is Rich, Reflection is Good . . .

 

I have a Bookmark that I purchased, and I love it Dearly . . .

 

It says:

 

Remember These Things:

 

You Are Valued . . .

 

You Are Precious . . .

 

You Are Needed . . .

 

You Are Loved . . .

 

These Virtues Are Indeed So Special!!! . . .

 

Have a most thoughtful morning . . . forthwith . . .

Good Evening To You, My Gentle Friends,

 

Well, My Lords and Ladies . . .

 

The Fun Begins . . .

 

Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle All The Way . . .

 

Oh What Fun It Is To Ride In A One-Horse Open Sleigh . . .

 

Well, we might have to change that a bit . . .

 

We have no snow here yet . . .

 

And the Sleigh is missing as well . . .

 

So, we will have to Jingle all the way on the road in the car . . .

 

Oh Well . . .

 

Times They Are 'A Changing . . .

 

Hmmm . . .

 

Stay Tuned For Further Developments, My Lords And Ladies . . .

 

Have a most thoughtful evening . . . forthwith . . .

Good Evening To You, My Gentle Friends,

 

Well, My Lords And Ladies . . .

 

The Holiday Season Is Officially Here . . .

 

As we open the Christmas Boxes of Electrical Cords, and Lights, and Ornaments . . .

 

We will also open our Wallets . . .

 

And our Hearts . . .

 

Let us try to remember the Reason for the Season . . .

 

Yes, the Decorations are here, and the Carols are being sung, and Plum Pudding is being made ( Yes it is - By Moi, Thank You Very Much ) . . .

 

SO, Christmas is Definitely NOT Humbug!!! . . .

 

Christmas is Wonderful!!! . . .

 

Have a most thoughtful evening . . . forthwith . . .

Good Evening To You, My Gentle Friends,

 

I would Offer this Humble Opinion, My Lords and Ladies . . .

 

Christmas is NOT Humbug!!! . . .

 

Neither is Hannukah to be treated lightly . . .

 

Nor is Ramadan irrelevant . . .( A Muslim Religious Observance ) . . .

 

Also Deepavali ( A Hindi Religious Holiday ) is Just as Revered . . .

 

And Chinese New Year is Very Respected . . .

 

So, each Religion has their own special Religious Tradition which is Important to them . . .

 

And as we begin to Celebrate the Christmas Holidays, let us remember Our Own Traditions in Our Own Families . . .

 

And Remember the Christ Child who was born on a Cold Winter's Night in a Humble Stable . . .

 

Then, if You would Remember that Other Ethnic Backgrounds choose to Honour Their Own Faiths . . .

 

And we should Respect Their Wishes . . .

 

But Now is the time to Honour Christmas and Our Beliefs of Our Hearts and Minds in the Supreme Being of Our Own Choosing . . .

 

Let us each Honour Christmas in Our Own Tradition . . .

 

Have a most thoughtful evening . . . forthwith . . .

Good Morning To You, My Gentle Friends,

 

Well, Christmas is Almsot Here!!! . . .

 

And Our Imperial Country Club Looks MAGNIFICENT!!! . . .

 

All of the Beautiful Lights, And Decorations - Just Marvellous, My Lords and Ladies, Just Marvellous!!! . . .

 

Oh Yes, and the Kittens have been wandering hither and yon, getting tangled up in the Lights again . . .

 

And Poor George, the Maintenance Man, had to get up on the Ladder - Again - and rescue one of the Kittens from the Foyer Lighting Display . . .

 

Oh My . . .

 

Such Is Life . . .

 

Beautiful Life . . .

 

Without Strife . . . ( I mean with strife, well, no, without upsetment ) . . .

 

Hmmm . . .

 

Perhaps not . . .

 

Oh Well . . .

 

Oh Dear, let me go and separate the Kittens again - they are having a minor disagreement among themselves, and generally running through the Hallways, becoming a minor upsetment to the Maids and Butlers . . .

 

Life is Indeed Beautiful, My Lords and Ladies, Indeed Beautiful . . .

 

Have a most thoughtful morning . . . forthwith . . .

Good Evening To You, My Gentle Friends,

 

Well, As Usual, Our Imperial Country Club is having its usual Ups and Downs . . .

 

Ups as in Up go the Christmas Decorations . . .

 

Downs as in there are those who have minor disagreements with life . . .

 

Well, I must tell You, My Lords and Ladies, that One of Our Beloved Maids, Arianna, has threatened to quit . . .

 

I had a long talk with her . . .

 

We must sort this out, I said gently . . . You are too valuable to everyone here - we need your gentle touch, and your bright cheerful smile . . .

 

But, she said through her tears, Madame, I cannot stay . . .

 

Why not, I pressed gently . . .

 

Well, the kittens, Madame, they jump out at me, and scare me so badly . . .

 

Is that all, I asked gently . . .

 

Oh Yes, Madame . . .

 

Do you not simply adore kittens, I asked gently . . .

 

Oh Yes, Madame . . . I do . . . I just get scared when they jump out at me . . .

 

Well, I said, beckoning for her to come closer, I will tell you a secret . . .

 

Kittens do this as a game because they jump out at mice, or anything that moves quickly . . .

 

Mice . . . she screamed . . .

 

No, no, Ariana, we have no mice here . . . We have too many cats . . . And cats kill all the mice, so you needn't have any fear that we have mice . . .

 

Oh, thank you, Madame . . . Arianna said quickly . . .

 

NOW, come with me, and I will show you something . . .

 

We proceeded into the hallway . . .

 

There were two kittens having another minor disagreement . . .

 

Do you see that they are having a slight disagreement, Arianna??? . . .

 

Oh, you mean they are fighting, Madame??? . . .

 

No, Arianna, we do not fight amongst ourselves here in Stormark . . . There is no need for that . . .

 

It makes no difference if we are a King and Queen, or Lord and Lady, or a Maid and a Butler, or a Litter of Kittens or a Litter of Puppies . . .

 

Everyone has "Minor Disagreements" . . .

 

You see, no matter how difficult the problem, there is always a solution . . .

 

SO, we always call these problems between two parties "Minor Disagreements" . . .

 

It makes things so much more sociable . . .

 

No fighting . . . That is too harsh . . .

 

Just "Minor Disagreements" . . .

 

Now, please hand me that piece of paper on the desk there, Arianna . . .

 

I crumpled up the paper quickly . . .

 

Instantly, the Kittens stopped their "Minor Disagreement" and listened . . .

 

Now, watch closely, Arianna . . . If you notice, the Kittens cannot see us, we are in another room with the door open . . .

 

I threw the crumpled paper into the Hallway . . .

 

Instantly, the Kittens disentangled themselves from each other and went to pounce on the paper . . .

 

They proceeded to bat the paper around the Hallway with glee . . .

 

You see, Arianna, they are not pouncing out at you . . . They are pouncing on to whatever moves in their path, and you were, at that moment, in their path . . .

 

Oh, I see, Madame, so they are not trying to kill me??? . . .

 

Oh, no, Arianna, I said, they are simply moving into whatever is in their way that moves . . .

 

Oh, Madame, I feel so silly . . . I thought they were trying to attack me to kill me . . .

 

Oh no, Arianna, this is how they learn how to pounce on things when they are little . . . They pounce on each other, or on people's feet, or pieces of crumpled paper . . .

 

Also, if you ever see one of the kittens on a bed, and someone is sleeping in the bed, with their feet under the covers, if that person moves their feet under the covers, the kitten will pounce onto the person's foot, even though it is under the covers . . .

 

Oh My, that is funny, said Arianna . . .

 

Yes, isn't it??? . . .

 

So, My Dear, is there anything else that bothers you at the moment??? . . .

 

No, Madame, now that I know that the kittens mean no harm to me, I am fine with that . . .

 

Oh, that is very good news, Arianna . . . I am so glad . . .

 

So, Arianna, I hope that I have helped you to see that the kittens are really harmless . . .

 

Yes, Madame, You have . . .

 

Oh Good . . .

 

So, does this mean, My Dear, that you wil be staying with us for quite some time to come??? . . .

 

Yes, Madame, I would like very much to stay . . . Perhaps I can watch the Kittens grow, and see how they play . . .

 

Yes, Arianna, and they will have Kittens of their own, and it goes on and on . . .

 

And You will be here to see all of that . . .

 

Isn't that Wonderful??? . . .

 

Yes, Madame, it is Truly Wonderful . . .

 

Well, I am very glad that we had this little talk . . . Promise me that you will come to me with any concern that you have in the future . . .

 

Yes, Madame, I will . . .

 

And, off she went, to do the Dusting . . .

 

Gracious . . . I think I need a Drink . . .

 

Let me see if Cook can find my Enormous Cup of Twining's English Breakfast Tea . . .

 

Have a most thoughtful evening . . . forthwith . . .

Good Afternoon To You, My Gentle Friends,

 

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ONE AND ALL!!! . . .

 

Well, My Lords and Ladies, it is FINALLY Here!!! . . .

 

Christmas Is Here!!! . . .

 

It is definitely about time, wouldn't You Agree??? . . .

 

After all, it seems like we have waited FOREVER for this Day!!! . . .

 

Ah Well . . .

 

NOW, on to a Subject of Great Importance . . .

 

Here at Our Imperial Country Club . . .

 

The Puppies and Kittens have had their Treats, and their Cream, and their Presents . . .

 

Then, they descended upon the Library, where each one proceeded to be ensconced in some particular area of their own choosing . . .

 

At the present moment, we have sixteen Puppies and Kittens who have chosen spaces in the Library to rest themselves . . .

 

Actually, they have rather taken over the Library . . .

 

However, Our Library is so Large that we really won't mind, because the seating spaces are quite spacious and such . . .

 

So, there is quite enough space for all of us Human Beings to engage in some civilized conversation and relaxation, whenever we should choose to do so . . .

 

Wait, Wait, I must go and get the Babies' Blankies so that I can wrap them up to keep them warm . . .

 

Now, where did Cook put those Blankies . . . Oh Yes, in the Linen Closet . . .

 

Have a most thoughtful afternoon . . . forthwith . . .

Good Evening To You, My Gentle Friends,

 

Well, My Lords and Ladies, Another Christmas has come and gone . . .

 

And we have survived . . .

 

A little worn around the edges, perhaps . . .

 

But we have made it through . . .

 

And we are proceeding towards a New Year . . .

 

So, here at Our Imperial Country Club, everything stands in readiness as we Celebrate Hanukkah . . .

 

And the New Year . . .

 

Let us Count Our Blessings . . .

 

Each of us has many, I am sure . . .

 

Oh, we have had our share of problems, My Lords and Ladies . . .

 

But, in the end, the God of Our Hearts and Minds has worked things out . . .

 

And the Problems have been solved to some degree . . .

 

So, we go on to the next Problem and Solution . . .

 

That is what Life is, My Lords and Ladies: Problems and Solutions . . .

 

And everything seems to work out sooner or later . . .

 

So, let us Count Our Blessings, and Smile . . .

 

Life Can Be Good . . .

 

It is Good . . .

 

Hopefully To Be Better . . .

 

Have a most thoughtful evening . . . forthwith . . .

The fun begins on New Year's Eve at 8:00 P. M., and ends who knows when . . .

 

Of course, there will be a full course Breakfast at the Club . . .

Good Evening To You, My Gentle Friends,

 

Well, I have some Momentous News!!! . . .

 

Remember the Streamers that I told You which were in place for New Years Day??? . . .

 

We have had to replace them TWICE - Our Beloved Kittens have played with them and jumped up at them so many times that they have become frayed . . .

 

Ah Well, Such Is Life . . .

 

"Should Old Acquaintance Be Forgot . . ."

 

I am fast forgetting ALL Acquaintance with Streamers . . .

 

Hopefully, we will not have to replace them anymore before New Years . . .

 

Oh Well, if we have to do that, so be it - New Years only comes once a year, and I will correct the Kittens, but I will not begrudge them a little play time . . .

 

"Should Old Acquaintance Be Forgot, And Never Brought To Mind"??? . . .

 

Nah . . . Bring It On . . .

 

Let's Remember All The Old Acquaintances We Can!!! . . .

 

Have a most thoughtful evening . . . forthwith . . .

Good Evening To You, My Gentle Friends,

 

Well, My Lords and Ladies, Walmart has had another Visit from me . . .

 

I have had to get more Streamers!!! . . .

 

Our Beloved Kittens have been getting into them again . . .

 

So, I went to Walmart and purchased enough Streamers to last for another two New Year's Parties - Just In Case!!! . . .

 

In spite of the fact that it is such a task to replace them, and get them put up, I simply cannot fault the Beloved Kittens for their Play Time!!! . . .

 

It is SUCH Fun to see them playing with the Streamers!!! . . .

 

You should see them!!! . . .

 

Cook, and everyone else has such a laugh when we see Our Beloved Kittens pouncing on the Streamers and such . . .

 

I have saved the old Streamers for their Play Time, and perhaps the New Ones will be left alone - for now . . .

 

At least until the New Year's Eve Party would be Nice!!! . . .

 

Have a most thoughtful evening . . . forthwith . . .

And Our Beloved Kittens will have to find something else to play with!!! . . .

 

Hmmm . . .

I'm sure that they will handle that just splendidly!!! . . .

Good Evening To You, My Gentle Friends,

 

Oh My . . .

 

The Kittens and the Puppies have worn themselves out playing with the Streamers from Our Grand Party . . .

 

They are all ensconced in their favourite places in the Library . . .

 

Each one has a special place that they picked out for themselves, and they have curled up and gone to sleep . . .

 

I have gone in and tucked them in with their Blankies, and they are all fast asleep . . .

 

How Absolutely Adorable!!! . . .

 

You should SEE Our Library!!! . . .

 

It is full of Puppies and Kittens all over the place, tucked in with their Blankies . . .

 

And just think . . .

 

Our Library is so large that we STILL have room for Us to wander around and read, or just lounge around!!! . . .

 

Amazing!!! . . .

 

Have a most thoughtful evening . . . forthwith . . .

Good Morning To You, My Gentle Friends,

 

Well, Our Holiday Season is Gently Winding Down, My Lords and Ladies . . .

 

The Maintenance Men have taken down all of the Christmas Decorations, and the Streamers from the New Year's Party . . .

 

Everything has been lovingly and carefully packed away until the next year's use . . .

 

However, My Lords and Ladies, I did save a few Streamers, and now the Kittens and Puppies have something to play with - until the Streamers are so worn and torn that they are ready for the Dustbin . . . which, judging by the shape that they are in now, should not be long!!! . . .

 

Have a most thoughtful morning . . . forthwith . . .
