To everybody I owe an email to, they're coming also Christmas presents are almost ready. Annie O, don't give me that I don't need a present, you're getting it. You know what's more annoying than standing on lego, putting a foot on a little speed racer with wheels. They must be weight tested. I finally found River's gift in Elephant's Child's parcel, I can be too careful at not losing small things at times.

The blackbird has a nest in the lemon tree and two doors down is an enormous Norfolk Pine full of Ravens. The one bird we have never had here are sparrows.
Well, miles to go before I sleep, it's bin day and I am still sneaking videos in both bins. We have inspectors around here who check the recycling bin and I'll be fined for this.

And thank you Barnaby for explaining that Preggers was not your partner at that time, back handed compliment, but was only a f--k buddy. Well we've been saying for years you never thought with your head and now Karma has proved us right. To your lovely wife, remember what Ivana Trump said, "don't get even, get everything".
