It was late on Christmas Eve. Mr. & Mrs. Claus were sound asleep. He was exhausted from his long trip around the world, and she was tired, too. She had helped him with all the presents, and made a lot of food for the next day’s celebrations.
All of a sudden, she woke up with a scream.
Santa woke up, scared.
“Honey, what’s wrong?” he asked.
“I forgot about the cookies! I pre-heated the oven and put the cookies in. Then, being the stickler I am for safety, I turned the oven off because we were going to bed! OH!!” (She wanted to use a certain word here, but after all, she is Mrs. Claus!)
Santa said, “Look, we’re both tired. Now lay down, and we’ll go back to sleep. You can always bake those cookies again tomorrow.”
Mrs. Claus thought to herself: ‘Oh sure, easy for you to say! You don’t know how much work I still have to do!’
But she went back to sleep.
When she woke up the next morning, she put on her bathrobe and hurried down to the kitchen. She opened the oven door and took out the forgotten cookies. Actually they didn’t look bad at all! And they were baked!
She tasted one of them. “OMG!” she cried. These cookies are delicious!”
She and Santa had a wonderful Christmas Day with their whole family, and those delicious cookies were loved by all.
Mr. & Mrs. S. Claus
I found Mrs. Claus’s cellphone number, and called her later that week. What a nice, cheerful woman! She sent me the recipe for those cookies, and here it is:
Here we sit as evening falls
Like old horses in their stalls.
Thank you, Father, that you bless
Us with food and an address
And the comfort of your hand
In this great and blessed land.
Look around at each dear face,
Keep each one in your good grace.
We think of those who went before,
And wish we could have loved them more.
Grant to us a cheerful heart,
Knowing we must soon depart
To that far land to be with them.
And now let’s eat. Praise God. Amen.
Oh Come On! When guys get together they have prayer meetings!! Everybody knows that.
I’m just watching the Kelly File. An 11-year-old tape discovered, of Donald Trump talking about sex, women, bed-time. Plus bragging. But listen to this on the show! Such self-righteousness! Such holier-than-thou-ness!
Paul Ryan, the male version of Mother Theresa, is sickened by this. Honey, take some Pepto Bismol. You’ll get over it.
How about an ancient conversation between Bill Clinton and one of his male friends? Any tapes available? When men get together with other men, they talk about things they would never say in front of their mother, father, sister, any other women. Maybe a little bragging? Maybe a lot of bragging! They’re men!
Come to think of it, when ladies get together they do the same thing – not quite to the same extent, but still…
I just get such a kick out of how holywe become when it’s SOMEONE ELSE on this particular burner. Shhhh…I hear Senators and Congressmen thinking: “I’m sure glad they don’t have my conversations on tape” – or do they…?Watch out!
“WSJ: Entire $1.7-billion ransom paid to Iran in cash”
September 7, 2016
“That cash – untraceable and easily transported – is going to kill a lot of innocent people. It’s expected that Iran will spread that cash among its surrogates like the Houthi rebels in Yemen and Hezb’allah, the Lebanese terrorist group fighting with Russia in Syria to bolster the Assad regime.”
Merillion: This entire “transaction” smells bad to me. Have you ever heard of a “ransom” payment of $1.7Billion? This sounds more like Obama using ransom as an excuse to fund terrorists. And what about congress? I thought they had the “power of the purse.” All I hear on the news is, “the U.S. has a policy of never paying ransom so why did we do it;” – not “why in hell is the United States giving any money to the country that has the bloodiest, most obsessive hatred for our country. I wouldn’t give them shit, no matter what that long ago “money for purchase” was.
“Khizr Khan, the Muslim Gold Star father that Democrats and their allies media wide have been using to hammer GOP presidential nominee Donald J. Trump, has deleted his law firm’s website from the Internet.”
…” as a lawyer he engages in procurement of EB5 immigration visas and other ‘Related Immigration Services.’
“The EB5 program, which helps wealthy foreigners usually from the Middle East essentially buy their way into America, is fraught with corruption.”
Remember Khan & wife at DNConvention, where Khan attacked Trump?
I was watching OANN NEWS today, and they had lots of info on Khan.
I was not recording it, but I remember a couple of things referencing their investigation of Khan:
Khan does Mrs. Clinton’s taxes. Khan promotes Sharia Law in America.
How interesting! And how interesting that he didn’t talk much about his son who was killed in action, but chose instead to badmouth Mr. Trump.
Did Hillary know what Khan was going to say? You bet she did.
OANN (One America News) is quite excellent. Fox News is good for TRUE fact news instead of lying journalists you find elsewhere, but OANN is far better than Fox News. One especially good show on OANN is “The Daily Ledger,” with Graham Ledger, an award-winning journalist.
Here in NJ, OANN is just about 2 channels down from Fox News.
