    I love Ora Zella’s list. All damage gear. Iggy is equally cute whistling while attempting to “acquire” some cookies? Thumbprint cookies maybe? But Burt wins for his snarky chyron, again. No way she’s been good enough for a chainsaw indeed! But here’s hoping Santa gives her one anyway.

    Let her have the chainsaw. Don’t let her have the battery. Or gas tank. Or extension cord. Or whatever it is chainsaws run on.

    …if it was anyone else, I’d think Iggy was sneaking a cookie, but I think he’s lining them up instead. Cutie!

    Fortunately Santa has an immunity to cuteness from being frequently exposed to it otherwise we would be all doomed.

    Cookies and milk for Santa? It’s a bit early for that. I made a number of promises to Mom before she died, and one of them was to stay away from chainsaws. There are some things OZ and I shouldn’t handle.

    When it comes to naughty-or-nice, cats (and dogs) are exempt from all lists. Besides, Ora Zella has been plenty good enough for the Swiss Army deluxe chain saw-axe-drill-flamethrower-knife combo!

    Elvis is so scholarly with his reading glasses.

    And it is hard to combine scholarly with pink polka dot PJs, but he pulled it off.

    He is really trying to concentrate on “A Christmas Carol.” He must be reading about one of the Christmas ghosts.

    Iggy is reasonable but Ora Zella is asking for the impossible, LOL. Reminds me of when me and my sisters would scout that Sears Wish Book and mark the pages for mom and dad \to see all the cool things we wanted for X-Mas. My Dad also let us look at a Radio Shack catalog but the only requests from it were some cool “Flavoradios”, My sister and I also got a cool rocket set (Estes) a couple of times back in the late ’70s as my Dad had a very cool thing with rockets: as my Dad was an industrial engineer who was a liaison for Raytheon with MacDill AFB with occasional trips to McCoy (now MCO Orlando International) and Patrick AFB by Canaveral and the Kennedy Space Center over on the East Coast. Man I miss him, and Mom as well as Grandma Hannah, I miss them a lot at times…… It has been a long time since I heard their laughs and got some cool advice from them…. Still, in 2023 and as long as I am alive, I am happy and will be happy to make life the best for my wife Sabrina and my daughter Amy..

    Do you believe in magic in a young cat’s heart?

    How the chainsaw can free her whenever it starts

    And it’s magic if the damage is total

    It’d make her feel happy each time she goes postal

    I’ll tell you about the magic of Ora out of control

    But it might be best to wait until she’s out on parole

    Yeah, do you believe in magic?

    Yeah, believe in Santa leavin’ a lump of coal

    Believe in the magic of keepin’ things whole

    Believe in the magic where peace is the goal

    Ahh, talking ’bout the magic

    Ah yes Santa and the other lies my mother told me……………….

    If you keep eating raw spaghetti

    you’ll get pinworms,

    then I’ll have to make

    a necklace of garlic for you to wear

    each night

    while you sleep,

    until they go away.

    If you’re mean to your younger brother,

    I’ll know

    because I have a special eyes

    that spies on you when I’m not home.

    You cannot hide from it,

    so don’t try.

    If you touch your “down there”

    any time other than when using the toilet,

    your hand will turn green and fall off.

    If you keep crossing your eyes

    they will stay that way

    until the wind

    changes direction.

    It is bad luck to kill a moth.

    Moths are

    the souls of our ancestors and it just

    might be Papa paying a visit.

    If you kiss a boy on the mouth

    your lips will stick together

    and he’ll use the opportunity

    to suck out your brains.

    If you ever lie to me

    God will knowand rat you out.

    And sometimes

    God exaggerates.

    Trust me —you don’t want that

    to happen..

    For those that have turned into their parents and have not learned how a do an internet search the above is from Elizabeth Thomas, poet, from her book From the Front of the Classroom. And no we don’t need 47 pictures of what you had for lunch, and you are not knowledgable enough to “slid into someone’s DM.”

    So a few years ago I thought it might be funny to get my sister a toy chainsaw for Christmas. We had joked a bit about it as she is very much not the kind of person who one would associate with a chainsaw. With this in mind I went looking for a toy chainsaw.

    And I couldn’t find one. Anywhere. It was annoying. Still, it was a gag gift, so I wasn’t too worried about it until I ended up in one of those discount tool stores. And there, for like 50 bucks was a REAL, electric chainsaw. I thought about it and said the hell with it and bought her an actual chainsaw.

    The funny bit though was a week later I found a toy chainsaw. It cost $60. The real thing was cheaper than the toy!

    Worked out later as we had a big branch come out of our tree and she got to use the chainsaw on it.
