Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas Everyone!

Well, My wife is watching her 14th straight Christmas movie, the fake fire is going in the fireplace,  I am listening to the "Phil Spector Christmas album".   I am sure I am enjoying it more than Phil this year.  I am listening to Darlene Love sing "Marshmallow World". They sure don't write Christmas songs like that anymore.  Perhaps we could get a petition together to make sure he doesn't get out of prison and write more songs like that. Whew!

Perhaps when it gets a little closer to Christmas I will bring out the big guns in Christmas music.  Maybe I can get Mariah Carey to screech out something Christmasy.  Then my wife will want to listen to Perry Como, Bing Crosby and maybe some French Canadian guy.

I will have to stuff some goodies in his little sock over the fireplace for our boy "Wilson".
He is tough to get to bed on Christmas Eve and an hour after we go to bed, he is on the bed, nudging, head butting, walking on my head, knocking stuff on the floor. He is trying to get us up.
He's hungry.  This has nothing to do with Christmas.  He just gets a little confused.  He is not as young as he used to be.  Who is?  I am an hour older than I was an hour ago.  That's kinda like saying; No matter where I go, there I am.
But I digress.
I Would like to wish all the people who inspired me to have fun with my blog.
First in line will be the little French lady, Chantal.  She encourages me, she would proofread my stuff when I first started out.  She also does some strange things, just like me. I write about them sometimes.
I like it when I write something and I get feedback and sometimes ideas.  For this I thank Bev the bitter hack, Guvanator Jensconsin, Indigo the winelush, Kwizgiver the(fill in the blank), L'empress, Rachael the thesis writer and many other.

There are others I haven't heard from in a while and I wonder how they are doing, like Becca, Judy P in Elliot Lake, Mamakerr in UK, Jo in UK. Larry, Where did you go? Kolliope, where are you? Sunny?
There are others I wonder about.  Well, I wish everybody happiness.  I will try to make you smile. FROM: Wilson, The funny French Lady and the squirrelly one. (me)

An appropriate gift to you all from a squirrel.  "Nuts to You!!!!"
Hmmm! somehow that didn't come out right.


  1. Great blog! Different, yet entertaining.

  2. Merry Christmas to you and yours Jon!

  3. And a very Merry Christmas to you, Jon the squirrelly one! Thanks for the shout-out!


  4. Very sweet of you. I think Marshmallow World was one of the first Christmas songs I learned how to play on the piano. As a kid, I always liked the idea of there being marshmallows everywhere, but I never knew it was a real song you could listen to. I'm going to go look that up now!

  5. I love that last picture ! It surprised me.
    If your wife wants to listen to some French Canadian guy, make her listen to Mes Aïeux (that's a group). They make really energetic music, their most popular song (every family plays it during the Holidays) is Dégénérations.

  6. Very interesting! I never heard of Marshmallow World.


  7. Merry Christmas Jon. Things got a little squirrelly right here in Elliot Lake and I had to take on another job for a while. It hasn't left me with much time to write or socialize. Things are getting back to normal now and I'll be back very shortly. Have a Happy New Year and blessings to the little French Lady.
