Brilliantly clever footles! I really enjoyed reading these witty pieces. Unfortunately, for me, I still can't put one together - lol. Pandita.

Oodles of footles at Christmas time. Some clever little tootles that always rhyme. A present for you, a present for me. I like footles under my Christmas tree. Do you hang your Christmas trees from the ceiling down under Jan. :) Peace. Hope you are having a wonderful holiday season. Thanks for the visit.

Well done Jan . I haven't been to the site for some time now and was delighted to see a clever FOOTLE . For such a short piece , they are not easy , but you have captured the Seasonal feel with your clever/witty pen . This form was invented/taken to the site by the talented Brian Strand some years ago . As it wont be a White Christmas here : " NO SNOW : RAIN DEAR" . Rgds , Sean .
