Has he been yet ?

A very happy Christmas eve everyone ,I cant believe I havent done an entry for six days ,though I managed to keep up with the alerts and comments ,just !I didnt even turn the commputer on ,on Monday and Wednesday ,both of those days I worked and went out in the evening ,so the following days were spent playing catchup !!I think everything is under control now ,So as I promised Ally ..........

My Dad loved to sing ,in my head there is a whole song book of songs he sang ,what ever he was doing hed be either singing or whistling ,though if I were to whistle hed say ,stop that ! "A whistling woman and a crowing hen ,neither any good to God nor men !!!" When I was really small ,(and remember the war was still on) ,this was the song he sang to me every Christmas.

I met a little fellow with a letter in his hand, he asked me if Id post it in the box to fairy land , So I  slipped it in the mail box for that little curly head it seemed to make him happy as he smiled and said .......Im sending a letter to Santa Claus ,a letter I hope he;ll recieve ,he;ll get alot of letters for playthings from other girls and boys ,But I want my soldier Daddy who;s better than all those toys ,So Im sending a letter to Santa Claus to bring Daddy safely home to me !                    (Is that sad enough for you? dear Ally !)

Well I guess thats it for today ,still things to do, as Im sure you all have so I wont hold you up any longer,except to say   have a lovely day tomorrow ,and thankyou to all my lovely J land friends ,for all the pleasure you have given me .......With all my love ,                     Have blessed Christmas time                      Jan xx

Lovely memories you have of your Dad. My granny would say when I used to  whistle " A whistling girl and a crowing hen always comes to some bad end". Merry Christmas to You and Maurice. Helen

Wonderful old song. Yes, I think we all remember our parents at Christmas.  Christmas Day was my mother's Birthday and we made it so extra special for her with two lots of presents and a cake that was half birthday and half Christmas.  One of our family songs was Danny Boy.  Dad did not sing but Mum did.  I think we miss them at Christmas more than any other time of the year.  Merry Christmas Jan, my dear friend and to Maurice xxxxx

What a sweet song, Jan.  How many little children wish their daddies & mommies could be home this year for Christmas ?   I'm glad I was young when my dad was at war & I don't remember that sad time.  I hope you and Maurice have a wonderful day.  Take care and God bless you both,  Linda in Washington
