I want a Snuffleupagus for Christmas
Only a Snuffleupagus will do
Don't want a doll, no dinky Tinker Toy
I want a Snuffleupagus to play with and enjoy

I want a Snuffleupagus for Christmas
I don't think Santa Claus will mind, do you?
He won't have to use our dirty chimney flue
Just bring him through the front door,
that's the easy thing to do

I can see me now on Christmas morning,
creeping down the stairs
Oh what joy and what surprise
when I open up my eyes
to see a Snuffy hero standing there

I want a Snuffleupagus for Christmas
Only a Snuffleupagus will do
No crocodiles, no rhinoceroses
I only like Snuffleupaguses
And Snuffleupaguses like me too!

The Infinite Spin Cycle

The longest wash-rinse-spin-dry cycle ever recorded in history occurred at Willow Bend yesterday, while we anxiously awaited the completion of the cleaning of the beloved Blank-et.


"It's in the washing machine, honey."

[Thirty-seven seconds pass]


"Still in the washer, Claire."

[Dramatic pause of 5.3 seconds.]


And approximately 56 years later (or so it felt), Blank-et emerged, clean and fresh...well, at least for the next five minutes.

The End.

Maclaren Recall

Recall of Maclaren strollers...I don't have one, but posting it in case anyone else might...
