Tuesdays Show and tail . . .

All right - our girl Angela has returned from being lost in Cyber Space for awhile and is back with her Show and Tail Tuesdays. Angela has people write in with their own pet stories, stories about animals in general, pictures of their animals, or people like me who, well, whatever... JUST JOIN HER!

(Smart guy huh?)

It is not how much we have, but how much we enjoy, that makes happiness.

Cats Playing Patty Cake Patty Cake

According to the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, while both male and female reindeer grow antlers in the summer each year, male reindeer drop their antlers at the beginning of winter, usually late November to mid-December.

Female reindeer retain their antlers till after they give birth in the spring.

Therefore, according to EVERY historical rendition depicting Santa's reindeer, EVERY single one of them, from Rudolph to Blitzen, had to be a girl.

We should've known....

ONLY women would be able to drag a fat-ass man in a red velvet suit all around the world in one night and not get lost.

A MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Great quote about learning to love ourselves. Sometimes its a hard thing to do.

Loved the videos, especially Santa and the reindeer.

I've never heard that about the reindeer in Alaska! Here in West Virginia it is only the male deer that get the antlers. I learned something new!

Isn't that the truth about gas prices? They are going up again here. That Charles Spurgeon quote is a good one and I so agree with it. It goes with the old saying "money can't buy happiness". We can enjoy with just a few little things, it is the condition of our heart I believe that helps us enjoy what we have.

I might just add these other reasons that we should have known that the reindeer were girls:

The reindeer don't try going down that filthy old chimney - way too smart for that.

The reindeer don't binge out on cookies - they eat carrots - watching that waistline.

The reindeer would NEVER say, "Ho, ho, ho" - especially around a bunch of other reindeer girls - could be misinterpreted.

The reindeer are warm and fuzzy, Santa is just plain old fat...

Just sayin'...

It's good to know that not all chauvinist pigs are men. (Rudolph being a girl--HAH!)
