Wishing you all a peaceful, joyous holiday season, however or wherever you celebrate this time.
Thank you for all your visits, comments and fellowship throughout the year.
It has not been an easy year for me & my time in blogger land has helped me get through some trying days. Blogging & reading keep me sane even when they add to my to-do list!
I look forward to your company in 2019, but until then,
Merry Christmas from beautiful, sunny Australia!
C. J. Dennis ‘A Bush Christmas’
The sun burns hotly thro’ the gums,
The chirping of the locusts comes
Across the paddocks, parched and grey.
“Whew!” wheezes Father. “What a day!”
And sheds his vest.
For coats no man had need.
Then Rogan shoves his plate aside
And sighs, as sated men have sighed,
At many boards in many climes
On many other Christmas times.
“By gum!” he says, “That was a slap-up feed!”
