Twas the Night before Christmas~ A Christmas Parody

Real Estate Agent with 951-290-8588 BRE # 01178979
Old Fashioned ChristmasTwas the night before Christmas
And all through the Rain,

Not a creature was stirring
Not even the insane.

The posts were strung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that points soon  would be there.

The bloggers were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of Features danced in their heads.

And mamma in her ‘kerchief, and I in my cap,
Had just settled down for a long winter’s nap.

When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter.

When way out there, deep in the snow,
It appeared there was a fracas below.

The bloggers and tweeters were in such disarray,
They sparred and fought with words, only to say,

When they kicked up their heels, and yelled with delight
“Merry Christmas to all, and to all a Good Night!”

(My apologies to Clement Clarke Moore)

Sandy - Look at you all creative and all. A wonderful job on this parody it looks like it just rolled off your tongue.
AND congrats for passing me in Ventura County. I have been watching you fire up the ladder. Great job. I guess this is in inspiration to kick it in gear and give a race EH? Now we can have a race to kick out the person at the 200,000 lineup.

Have a wonderful holiday and I hope to see you sometime in the Oxnard area.

Hi Ken, so you been watching? Here, I thought I was sneaking up. So you took a break... That's ok, I will be taking one soon too. But definitely need to get miss no picture with lots of points and inactive out of that spot.

I remember when I thought I could never reach 50,000 and now I've tripled that.

Thanks for commenting and have a great holiday.
