Ho Ho Ho! Nizhonigo Keshmish Baahózhó Doo Nínanahí, as the Navajos would say…

And, who exactly, is it that can say for certain that Santa Claus doesn’t ride a mud elephant made by an imaginative Navajo toy maker named Mamie Deschillie?  Hmmmmm?????  I offer up proof to the contrary.

Apologies for this very late in the day Christmas Hello…but I drove all day yesterday from Virginia to Kentucky to make it back in time to have Christmas Eve dinner with friends from Columbus and to spend Christmas with my husband…then we woke up late and raced off to the first showing of Les Mis at 11:30, which was packed and had the audience spellbound for 2 1/2 hours.  But I digress…

Because I’ve been traveling for three weeks I did absolutely nothing to decorate or demonstrate in any outward way that it is Christmas.  

But that doesn’t mean that inwardly I’m not conscious of my many blessings and good fortune, for which I am grateful.  So I and my little mud Santa Claus and Christmas Elephant wish you all a Merry Merry and a pre-Happy Happy.

What a total pleasure G+ is…which is due completely, totally, and utterly to your good company, humor, wit, intelligence and willingness to so often join me in conversation about, well, pretty much everything.  Here’s to another year of the same….

…and a very special Buon Natale e felice anno nuovo to my Italian friends all over the world!

Peace and blessings to all of you.
