To All My Friends Old and New

“…Christmas time is here
We'll be drawing near
Oh, that we could always see
Such spirit through the year
Oh, that we could always see
Such spirit through the year”
This is a display by the desk of a co-worker. I was always a fan of A Charlie Brown Christmas Special as a child so this took me back. Many of you will be quiet until the new year so I wanted to wish you all well. Have fun and be safe at your holiday parties and family gatherings. Well, I have work to do, places to go and people to see. Have a great weekend! Peace~

Love this write-up... BUT-- you have officially scared me with that picture. It's as disturbing as the Burger King KING image!

Stephen Bess said...

LOL! :)I thought that I was the only one disturbed by the Burger King image! I agree. Thanks and have a great weekend!

Now, I liked these little guys (good photo of them!) but that Burger King King guy is terrifying.

Hope your holiday is great too!

Stephen Bess said...

Gnight-
Thanks! I see we all agree on BK. :)

Gee, I like the Burger King. He's weird!

Season's Greetings, Mr. Bess, if we don't hear from you again before Christmas.

Hi Stephen,
Still alive and kickin' here! It's nice to have a quiet moment when I can drop by and visit old friends. I loved a Charlie Brown Christmas, too. What memories! (Right along with Heat Miser and the rest of the gang!)...ah, to be in our late thirties! To date ourselves by our knowledge of the classics! Hope you are well, friend, at this meaningful time of year.

Wishing you all the best,
Michele
