The Hound here...
Cathy aka Stitchfork is
crashed recharging on
the couch after all the merriment
I’ve also been a busy elf with my traditional
hound-gift-giving to everyone
dog ID tags in case they get lost...done that
peppermint bark...done that
yellow cotton candy /do-not-eat-yellow-snow reminder...done that
after some brainstorming with some of the locals…
my gift this year was “the hair of the dog”
yep, I did hot glue some of my brushed hair
onto the tag as my signature
& then I slipped a tiny bottle of wild turkey in the gift box
They did card me at the store as I am only 11...
But hey, I explained, that’s 77 in dog years
Oh! We had a new family member at the table this year—
I sat right
under next to him as he understands
the joy of sharing a holiday meal!
