Bah Humbug

A Grinch in a hamlet of Whovilles Stole credit cards, ringing up big bills Without checking price tags He murmured, “Bah, Scumbags” For this is how grinches get their thrills! *January 3, 2015

LOL, so true, my friend. Good to see you posting on Soup. How about a threesome - nooooo, a co-write with Sandra, I mean. LOL. That would be cool. We'll get her Muse whispering in her ear again, eh?

This made me smile and chuckle Carolyn. I hope you are feeling well? This year will be difficult for my husband, and I pray he makes it through the year. He is very ill with COPD and aneurism on his heart. He has always been a big strapping man so this is hitting him hard. Blessings, Connie
