Dear Time,
Yes, you’ve done it again, haven’t you? It’s now December yet it feels like it should be April or May. And judging by your track record it soon will be ( next April or May, that is!). I mean we have Christmas decorations up. OH MY WORD!!! Christmas decorations up!!! The blog. THE BLOG!!!!!

Dear Blogland,
I’m still caught up within that vortex of time, so have only come up for air to briefly write this post. And to quickly create a star-shaped candle for the Festive Season to go with all of my other candles which are free to use. As you know, I do like to share a little light every now and again, and I don’t see why being spun around in an almighty huge chronal thingamajig should prevent that.

Dear Blogland,
I do apologise, but this thought just sprang to mind.
What goes Ho Ho Hooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo! Ho Ho Hoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo! Ho Ho Hooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo??? Me being festive whilst spinning around in that chronal thingamajig. I did apologise. I did. I DID!

Dear Blogland (Yes, I do appear to be spamming you at the moment!!!),
Do you remember the indescribably cute critter Juke the Cat from last week’s Letters post? Well, things have changed. He’s my brother’s cat, and he took him to the vets for his first round of checks and unbecoming (for something so cute) poking and probing. Said poking and probing revealed that he is actually a she, and she is now called Jude. He or she, she is still so cute it’s untrue, and here’s another photo of her. Just because…

Dear Blackbird,
Thank you for posing for a few photos today whilst you were busy foraging. I remember you from last week, which is why I think you didn’t fly away as you knew I meant you no harm, but I was surprised when you flew quite close to me and looked directly at me. Your friend the robin also approached really close, but I don’t think he was just ready for his close up.
1… The blackbird…


2… The Robin…

Dear Mobile Phone Camera,
How handy you are when opportunities such as the above arise. Yes, sometimes the images may be a little grainy, but at least you are there, ready for me to grab at least a brief snapshot of different worlds interacting. Thank you for that!

Dear White Rabbits,
Happy December!

Dear The Word Tellurian,
Yes, we are all here together! We really should make the most of it.

Dear Letters To The Universe,
As promised, I have managed to get this week’s post out on Friday. Well, on Thursday for Friday, but at least that is slightly better than on Saturday for Friday. Still, better late than never is always good, and being just a tad early in the late stakes surely adds a bonus point or too. (Sorry, did I mention that chronal vortex tingy?)

And Finally, Dear Shivers,
It’s so good to see you again, and your accomplices, Chattering Teeth and Foggy Breath, seem to be making quite a few appearance themselves lately. Still, with the rate at which time is flying, all that shivering, chattering and fogging will soon be things of the past for this year as we hurtle into Spring.

Thank you for reading,

P.S. I wasn’t going to end this week’s post with a photo, as I have included quite a few attachments to the letters above…

… well, then I remembered I had another photo of the Robin in silhouette that I thought I’d share! Next week, Letters To The Universe will be on Friday. Or will it??? Pop by to find out! Mwahahaha! Oh, Happy December!

  1. Oh goodness don’t rush. We ,here in the USA, aren’t in to Friday just yet. Someone is always ahead of me anyway so it doesn’t really matter.But…I spend so much time commenting on all my blog friends I don’t get any blog time my self. Which isn’t so bad because I feel like if someone is industrious enough to blog they deserve a comment. Am I rambling…yes…Have a good Saturday since your Friday is almost gone.

    1. Not rambling at all, Beverly.
      My blogging has gone out of the window for the time being, as the delay in my replies to you may indicate.
      Normal service shall be resumed soon… I hope…

  2. Yes, December is with us once again and it feels strange to see the WordPress snow drifting down as if to remind us that it’s darned cold out there!!! 🙂

    Hope you have a great month my friend!!! 🙂

    God Bless!

        At least we only have the cold to come at the moment – tonight it wasn’t too bad, just wet and a bit chilly! 🙂

        God Bless!
