A day off for the Grinch.

Tonight I am a tad tipsy so I ask for a little leeway on the spelling and grammar.

Fortunately I don't get maudlin tipsy. I get giggle tipsy. So when I hear that Thermos flasks are now the weapons of mass dreary tea, I can only think of Dwayne Dibley.

For this one day, I am not going to get worked up about anything at all. I'm going to visit YouTube and seek out the funny and the bizarre and just laugh the night away.

Normal misery will resume, far sooner than I would like.

And don't forget to check your gmail account as you might receive a present there, also to make you laugh.

Cheers and Merry Christmas.

Happy Xmas leggy.

At least you should have a nice lie in this morning. My overexcited kids woke me at 5am!

Mind you, they were kind enough to leave Santa a nice bottle and a cigar last night!

Good for you, old fella. (I too like to go there and (as we say in this part of Lancs "'avv-a-luff".)

Keep the marvellous prose coming though. It cheers us all up every day.

SubRosa;- forgive me;- but I didn't have the credentials to post this (ie as Anonymous) on your blog:=})

There seems to me to be possibly a chunk of Christmas Present, absent from the two-part narrative... ?

We move from, at the end of Pt.1:

"I have come!" said a voice with an antipodean flavour to it, Scrooge trembled as somehow the voice was familiar and it unnerved him.
"Who are you?"
"I am the Spirit of Climate Present."

To be continued


to, at the start of Pt.2:

Tall, grey, hooded and cloaked, the Spirit looked strangely dignified yet somehow indistinct. A shiver went through Scrooge. He was not having a good night.

Tremulously, after a terrifying silence, Scrooge said,

"Are you the Spirit of Climate yet to Come?
[...]


Are we missing something;- an episode, here? ;=})

Christmas, Climate ...

Hello Ross, you're right. I apologise for that. Had to republish that part because the spacing went haywire and obviously I lost that whole section. Philip couldn't have noticed and I should have previewed it.

Please read it again.

My apologies.

Sorry for using your place off topic LI.
