Words and pictures are BOTH excellent, and the more threads, the better, in my opinion! :D

Having a hard time getting into the Christmas spirit here. Maybe it's a California thing, since others on that forum are expressing their lack of it, too. :( Regardless, you all help lift it a LOT!

Beautiful!! And not a single blue one with glitter - sorry but I hate what they are doing to poinsettias these days, just my personal taste.

Not much Christmas spirit here either Brenda. Just too tired I guess.

OY! We at Camp Nappy Resorts would be remiss if we did not allow the girls to send their best wishes for OUR FRIENDS at Christmas!

Lookin' *quite pleased* with themselves after having turkey soup for breakfast! LOL! :-)

Sloppy wet ones for the ladies.

Hiya Brenda! :-)

The warm turkey soup was originally intended for us mere humans at Camp Nappy but Daisy had, ohhhh how shall we say ... digestive indiscretion of the bloody mucoid kind?!?!?

We think she ate someone outside. Ewwwwwwwwwww!

She is a solid citizen once again and on a happier note... Daisy is a very good teacher, although perhaps not the best role model.

Rani, now larger than Daisy, tries to stuff Daisy's face into her mouth! LOL!

OMG! We really are soooooooooooooooooooo abnormal! BTW ... ~OUR~ Mr. Cardinal was chowing down this morning and afternoon. :-)

Kindest regards to you and yours.......

Hey Us,

VERY nice photo of the 4 footed Nappy Campers! Rani is regal (finally did grow into the ears), Daisy is Soooo cute...... trouble two-fold I can tell, no way those sweet expressions can be sweet all the time. Hold on a sec....

"Kate, put DOWN the little horse vender from the village under the tree! Oops...decapitated horsey... :("

Glad she (they?) are over the dietary indisgression. And I'm really glad Mr. Cardinal is healthy and HAPPY.

Best wishes for a Happy Abnormal New Year to All!

Sarah

Thanks, Comet! Tater's wild and wooly as ever... barks at half the commercials on TV -- anything with animated characters or animals, even knows the music and/or narration for some of his favorites and can be in the dining room eating his supper and hear the one for Chantix come on, and will stop eating to go jump up on the Niagara bed and bark at that turtle and hare (mostly the turtle, lol)... he often looks behind the TV when they disappear, too, to see where they went.

Mom's doing good, better healthwise in most ways, except for her eyes, which finally got bad enough the doctors told her she had to stop all driving, so I have to do all her driving now; Dad passed last March, but it was a long time coming and expected, so it hasn't been too hard on her or me -- more on Tater Tot, I think, since he sat on Dad's lap and played with him a lot, but he seems to have adjusted, too.

Happy Holidays again, everyone!
Jeff

Hi there Sarah.

Thanks. :-) We have been unusually abnormal just this last week. ~SIGH!~ You should sign up for the Camp Nappy® newsletter. LOL!

Daisy was quite ill for about three days but is back in top Crazy Daisy form.

May your memories of Christmas past be happy and your dreams for the future come true. This would include a New Year with a non oil-soaked ... full coated Emma, a happy healthy Herb and no ankle boot!

Kindest regards to you and yours as always,

C3D

OMG, Chicka, that was THE most hilarious post I've ever read!!!

"...she ate someone outside."

"She is a solid citizen once again..."

"Rani...tries to stuff Daisy's face into her mouth!"

GREAT news about Mr. Cardinal, too!!!!!!!

However, be sure to tell Miss Daisy Delicious that I promptly stopped laughing when I read about her 3-day illness. Poor sweet girl!

Blast from the past! :D So sorry to hear about your dad, Jeff, but Tater Tot sounds as yummy as ever. Big kisses for that sassy sassafrass!

I almost forgot to post this pic of Malone on the day after Christmas at my folks'. He squeezed himself into Callie the Kitty's bed after a long day of opening presents and looking handsome. I call this piece, Oyster on the Half-Shell. :D

Oyster on the Half Shell!!! That is hysterical! He is a little pearl isn't he. I could slurp him right up with a little cocktail sauce. Thanks.
