'Twas the night before Christmas in Area 51 House
Garden friends were stirring including 'Jiffymouse'
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care
in hopes that St. Pappa Bear 'Bill' soon would be there!
'Loz' and 'Weezie' were nestled snug deep in their beds
While 'BF Visions' of 'algreyparrotts' bananas danced in their heads.
'Comfrey' in her kerchief, and 'JV' in his cap
had just sat down for some cake and cognac.
When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter
JV sprung fron his chair to see what was the matter!
Away to the window he flew with a flash
he tore open the mini-blinds and spilled his cognac!
The moon on the fresh fallen snow showed so clear
gave the luster of scattered diamonds on a back drop of black gold so dear!
When what to their wondering eyes did appear?!!
But St. Pappa Bear Bill and 8 tiny reindeer.
The protective swift driver, so caring and true
He makes personal buttons that decribe only you!
More rapid than Eagles, his coursers they came
and he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name.....
Now , 'Merme', Now 'Will Creed', Now'Cricket',and 'Patty'
On 'Hisgal', On 'Obywan',On 'TK' and 'Buglady'
To the top of the porch, to the top of the wall
Now dash away, dash away, dash way ALLL!
As Dry Leaves that before was layering for com- post Whipped high in the air, leaving 'black-gold' for most.
So up to the house-top these Gardners they flew
With a sleigh full of garden supplies and St. Bill too.
And then in a twinkling they heard on the roof
The dancing of Yuletide for the joy of plants
Down the chimney St.Bill came with a bound .
Don't worry He's not hurt he's used to bouncing around.
He was dressed in red overalls from his neck to his foot, And he was happy but tarnished with ashes and soot.
A Bundle of gardening toys he had flung on his back
and looks like a kind Peddler just opening his pack.
He's eyes how they twinkled, His Smile so Merry
His cheeks were like roses
his nose like a cherry
His droll little mouth drawn up like a bow
and the beard on his chin was as white as the snow
The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth
and the smoke it encircled his head like a wreath
Oh You could see St. Bill was really 'njoynit'!!
He spoke not a word but went straight to his work
Filled all the stocking with 'Potnpans' and Goodies and didn't even forget the one '4Ruddy'!!
He finished his work and turned with a jerk
and laying his finger aside of his nose
Giving a nod-- UP the chimney he rose
He sprung to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle,, and Away they all flew like the down of a thistle
But I heard him exclaim as he drove out of sight
Remember Be Safe for ALL members here!!!
No "Hot Links" this day or any day of the year!!
Merry Christmas To All, and Good Holiday Cheer
Happy Holidays Everyone!!
