God Bless Us, Every One!

I plan to do my part to decrease the surplus population at the malls today and stay in. I also can't go downstairs until hubby and the kids are finished making my birthday card. I do think they plan to take me out somewhere too (Red Lobster?). Before I had kids, it was always nice to have the day off from work on my birthday, but it's always been overshadowed by the Big Guy! No complaints though.

Scrooge was better than his word. He did it all, and infinitely more; and to Tiny Tim, who did not die, he was a second father. He became as good a friend, as good a master, and as good a man, as the good old city knew, or any other good old city, town, or borough, in the good old world. Some people laughed to see the alteration in him, but he let them laugh, and little heeded them; for he was wise enough to know that nothing ever happened on this globe, for good, at which some people did not have their fill of laughter in the outset; and knowing that such as these would be blind anyway, he thought it quite as well that they should wrinkle up their eyes in grins, as have the malady in less attractive forms. His own heart laughed: and that was quite enough for him.

He had no further intercourse with Spirits, but lived upon the Total Abstinence Principle, ever afterwards; and it was always said of him, that he knew how to keep Christmas well, if any man alive possessed the knowledge. May that be truly said of us, and all of us! And so, as Tiny Tim observed, God Bless Us, Every One!

God Bless Us, Every One!!
Wishing you the love, peace and happiness that the true meaning of Christmas brings

Thanks, Chris. I'm only 29 + 2 (2B) in hexadecimal. I think I'll stick to that from now on.
