Hey peoples, it's me, the Duck (and Dog) Lady's husband.
It's been a long year. As a matter of fact, it's been a couple of long years. We've seen all sorts of insanity in our society recently. It's been so crazy, satire is no longer possible, since any crazily absurd thing you can say for humor's sake just comes true.
I made a YouTube video back in January 2021 where I made predictions about the deleterious things that were going to happen. Sure enough, the large majority of them have come true, and many of them that haven't yet come true have been proposed by politicians and/or bureaucrats.
Scroll down to my entry of July 14, 2022 to see it.
Right now, I want to wish you all a merry Christmas. In our economic downturns nowadays, most of us still have joy in our hearts and have enough ingenuity to share this joy with our loved ones. Those of us who are better off have even shared with complete strangers. Bless them.
Anyway, there is no joy greater than our recognition that our Lord and Savior was born over 2,000 years ago, and He is still leading us out of our darkness today.
Luke 2: 1-16 (KJV)
And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be taxed.
(And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.)
And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.
And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:)
To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child.
And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.
And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.
And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.
And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.
And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.
And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger.
Now for some pictures of the Graham Christmas tree, festooned mostly with acrylic snowflake ornaments with pictures of my sons from Christmases past.
And of course, a stand-alone framed decoration with our first of EIGHT DOGS IN THE HOUSE, Pixie Bear.
