    Good write B&A.
    Woof! Fido says Advent may start at the end of November some years, with Advent Sunday (it was last Sunday). Advent Calendars start on 1st December though.
    But - I got no gold! I should be so lucky (if I believed in luck, which I don't!). Or 'Gold? Chance would be a fine thing!' heehee.


      Good Morning - Uncle Steve thanks for your comment . It really is CHRISTMAS today in ESSEX - 3 inces of REAL SNOW so weve got our SNOW BOOTS on ready for work. To honour this we are posting a NEW FUSION *TREASURES OF THEyer SNOW* please add a POEM later ! Does FIDO like the SNOW ? SMOKEY shot out this morning but quickly shot in again ! Does your Church have a MEGA ADVENT CALLENDER - Lots of C of Es do. We have a large CHRISTMAS TREE & a large ADVENT CALLENDER for the KIDS ! Our Evangelical CHURCH is open each day for Prayer and Coffee & Donuts ~ AMEN !

      Blessing & Joy to YOU & Freezing FIDO
      Spiritual Love A & B & El Gato Frigido ! ! !

        We have some nice 'improper rain' of drizzle. Some proper rain too. lol. Sorry to say this, but one church hardly knows what Advent - or a hymn book - is! Erm, so they don't closely observe the 'church year'. Well, I was keen one year. I walked 2 hours to that church one Christmas when it was -9C. A bit of wasted journey though, as half of them had gone away to relatives, and it was a poor show of a Service (do stop moaning Orchi, says Fido!). I've had better Christmases.

        A fine write but there's only one syllable in marked - well you did ask us to check - oh, and an errant amen πŸ˜‰

          Thanks Uncle Mike ~ BRIAN HERE ~ Mea culpa ~ I checked the syllables ~ I should have accented the *e*. To correct I have added an extra SYLLABLE ~ to Line 3 ! Thanks for you kind observation !

          Blessings & Prayers for You & Jeanne
          Love Angela Brian Smokey ! ! !
