Friday Flash 55...

Office parties, Secret Santas, the seasonal grogs,
Mulled cider, hot chocolate, delicious egg-nog.
Holly boughs, mistletoe, and colorful poinsettias,
Every town is all aglow, from Butte to Marietta.
Toys for Tots, bell ringers, soldiers home on leave.
"Oh Come All Ye Faithful", "Silent Night", and "Greensleaves"....
...It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas!!!!!
See? It's not just about Clappers and Chia Pets. If you or anyone you know has written a Friday Flash 55, please come tell The G-Man. I will visit, read, enjoy, comment, Then Book! So from the most gracious host from coast to coast, have a Great Week-End!!!

Wow that all paints a wonderful picture in our heads. So nice. I just picked up some eggnog yesterday. I guess it is just that time of the year ... and time of the week. Very nice 55.

SignGurl said...

I'm in the spirit now! Nicely done!

I participated this week, although slightly late.

Devotee said...

Delightful 55, G-man -- as always!
I've touched up an old poem of mine for this week.

S said...

You're just Johnny on the spot with your holidays, arent you?

I will put up my tree on Xmas eve and take it down on the 26th.

Just kidding....but you know, some of us should be in India , NOT here doing Christmas.

Whyd'ya think I married a Jew?


S said...

LOL Jews dont have Christmas, Gman.


buffalodick said...

Nicely done! Santa will be good to you this year!

javajazz said...

why do you think i married
a not jew? thats right, so we
could have Christmas...
(okay, that's not the real
reason buuuuut...)

Cha Cha said...

I guess I'm on the late train too.

But, it's only 10:35 in the morning on Friday.

So, really, y'all...we're not technically late until past midnight tonight.

Everyone else is just early.


Anyhow, Galen, this 55 makes me want to light-up some pine-scented incense.

Which means I have to go buy some.

I should also go buy some egg nog.

And with that, because I agree with Ciara whole-heartedly, I need to buy some brandy too.


Happy holidaze.
