    Somehow I think Lupin’s idea of “thorough research” probably consists of reading two wikipedia pages and sleeping on an Encyclopedia Britannic, Volume S for Santa, in hopes that he’ll acquire all the knowledge needed through osmosis!

    Well . . . Lupin’s probably not entirely wrong . . . but the way he relayed the information . . . and the consequences thereof . . .

    Yeah. Everyone’s annoyed with him.

    Uh, Lupin, aren’t you supposed to do the research first before telling kittens things like that? Oh, never mind. Lupin is in full frantic retcon mode, so we might as well enjoy the ride and see where it takes us …

    I thought everyone knew Santa has a transporter like on Star Trek. That’s how he got in our house(s). Never had a chimney, but somehow Santa was there.

    He would arrive on our rooftop early evening on Christmas Eve. My parents and grandparents would hear him (I never did), and we had to hide in the bedroom until he left because Santa can’t work while kids are watching — I never knew the logic behind that, though. I guess we would be a distraction.

    Lupin technically isn’t wrong about the shapeshifting. Santa would need to magically change shape to fit down the chimneys.

    Oh but Lupin, you are lying to the kittens, you have been duped into believing in the Great Christmas Lie that is Santa Clause. You are also proving that one lie begets another, and another and another until that fateful day when the lie is exposed for what it is. The day that trust absolute takes a hit and can never more be returned to the level it once was.

    And what makes everyone think Lupin hasn’t already read these sources? He seems pretty confident that they’re all relevant, and he’s not wrong either! I’m with Lupin here. He was telling a great story that fit with other Santa-related stories, just highlighted an aspect most of them only imply. And then everyone piled on him. That’s not lying. That’s fanfiction.

    Fanfic forever!

    Don’t know much about Santa Claus

    Don’t like much the stress poor Lupin caused

    Now his book research is gonna show

    Just how much that scampy boy does know

    Well, I do believe that it’s all true

    And if all cats could believe it too

    What a wonderful world this would be

    La, ta, ta, ta, ta, ta, ta (Mystery)

    Hmm-mm-mm (Clausogy)

    Whoa, la, ta, ta, ta, ta, ta, ta (Santa books)

    Hmm-mm-mm (The pile he took)

    Yeah, I do believe in Lupin’s screed

    And if his solid proof does succeed

    What a wonderful world this would be

    Three cat night.

    It got down to about 40°F overnight – mighty cold by south Texas standards. I wound up with all three cats in the bed with me. And no hissy-growlies! The lil gray guy was by my feet, the orange plush by my knees, and the princess crawled in under the blanket and curled up by my chest. Wonderful bed-warmers!

    The best example of “(whoever-) – splaining” I ever encountered was from the play, “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown.” Near the end, bossy, know-it-all Lucy explains how the world works to her naive younger brother, Linus. (e.g., ants pull the grass to make it grow.) The play’s script’s available for free online. A great holiday season read, best enjoyed with hot chocolate and cookies.

    Iggy: I’d like to learn to play a stringed instrument.

    Mandy: Here is one we just got in. It came from Ali-Bama.

    Lynn: He was on his way to Lu-Siana.

    Iggy: Just the thing. It’ll go just fine in the band. I think I’ll call it…Well the Orb can figure it out.

    Ora Z: Can we break the strings?

    Iggy: I’d rather you didn’t. But there are plenty of percussion instruments for you to pound.

    Meanwhile, Back at the Palace

    Elvis-Anum: Mag-Lor just sent me another batch of scrolls to be transcribed. The Elven saga continues.

    When I was about five (back in the early 1960’s) , I used to take an old mayonnaise jar, poke hole in the lid, put some grass ( from the lawn) into the jar. Then I used to pick up ants from the sidewalk, put them in the jar, and take them into our house, to keep as pets. My mother would take them outside and let them go.

    Lupin is right. Santa makes himself, you know, like a really small guy when he comes down the chimney. It’s all documented in “Santa Claus and His Old Lady” by Cheech and Chong.

    When my daughter was a toddler , I told her that Daddy gets up and lets Santa in through the front door, so she couldn’t go downstairs until 7:00a.m., or Santa wouldn’t leave presents.

    Since Lupin brought up the idea of Christmas books, I just finished a cute Santa mystery novella called Three French Hens and a Murder by Michele PW (Pariza Wacek). Two women are driving through a snow storm when they see an injured Santa on the side of the road, so of course they had to stop and take him to the hospital. He’s worried because he can’t find his head elf or his 3 French hens. It leaves you wondering all through the book, is he really Santa or just a really convincing con artist?

    Twelve cozy mystery writers got together and wrote the 12 book series with titles related to the 12 days of Christmas. There is a clue to another mystery in each book. Readers who read all 12 books and find the clues get a free book with additional stories and recipes. I probably won’t read all of them because some of the books are Historical Themed Cozy Mysteries, of which I’m not so fond. This one is book #3. You can read them in any order. Some of the books are by writers of series I follow. I liked the characters so much in this one, I’m going to go back and start reading the Charlie Kingsley Mysteries series.

    Next up is Four Fatal Flying Fruitcakes: A Ravenwood Cove Cozy Mystery (The Twelve Days of Christmas Cozy Mysteries Book 4)by Carolyn L. Dean, part of a series I’ve followed since the beginning.

    It just dawned on me, If Ora Zella DOES capture Santa in her jar….while he is small…..Could he not just return to full size, shattering the jar, and escape?
