After the kid’s Christmas…oops…holiday…oops…winter program, I think I’m entitled to my eccentricities. We were treated to songs like the Penguin Polka, Turkey Woogie, and Mashed Potatoes. The only song I knew was Spin the Dreidel which is saying something since I’m protestant. I understand (don’t read agree) the whole separation mentality of church and school, but for Pete’s sake…what’s wrong with Deck the Halls or Jingle Bells. Anyone want to guess what Turkey Woogie is? The Kindergarteners were singing it. Words were pretty much optional. Hey, they were cute. By the way, the school covered Hanukkah and Kwanzaa but Christmas and Solstice were left out. Christians and Pagans on the same ground again. Who’d have thought… well, lots of people…
While I have the camera out…this is Dogbert, AKA Nixie. She answers to both names and is the best behaved dog ever. Except when people come over. Then she becomes The Wild Dog for about two minutes. Seven years and I can’t train that out of her. We’ve had her since she was 4 weeks old. A rescue dog. She honestly thinks I’m her mama. For the first few weeks, she spent all the time I wasn’t at work and she wasn’t in the yard nestled in the crook of my arm. Of course back then she was as big as her head is now. These days she spends a great deal of time sleeping on my feet.
The food didn’t lure out my true love…sigh. I give up. Maybe I didn’t make the list this year. Well, wait…I’m pretty sure I’m at least on the naughty list!
