Chill’d JB – was just considering wether or not to ease the stress and put it up myself, knowing full well you were on “Holidays” until NYE

Wow, “Orphan’s Christmas” huh? What a fantastic idea.

I was wondering just today about the people for whom Christmas may be quite ‘unmerry’ – the lonely, the homeless, the sick, and those who have lost family. How do they know what resources are available to them to help get through what must be quite a difficult time?

Well, what is a cave without cubs, eh, Bundy? Every self-respecting bear needs a few playing around the den, even though it might make hibernating a tad more difficult after stuffing oneself silly ….

; )

Chill dan,

Your photo is going up ASAP.

Got some things going on is all.

Indeed Granny, ‘twould, but I fear I cannot use the aforementioned appellation as I have in fact been named and shamed and can no longer claim apparition status.

Lunch with the family, newest cub now old enough to “get” presents, so that should be cool. Will make another futile attempt to explain the rules and intricacies of the BBQ to the ranga kiwi son-in-law. Then dinner is “Orphan’s Christmas”, friends without family at the daughter’s. Always nice.

Kid’s go to NZ to introduce cub to other grandparents after that, definiteley the go, family is everything.

Have a top time.

We will be going to Perth.

Gramps and the three kids flew over yesterday, and I am by myself for three days, which is absolute bliss now that I know they have arrived safely and I will see them again ….

: )

I am flying over on Christmas Eve because one of my big girls turns 26 the day before, then me and my girlfriend might check out the Feldons, if I can get there in time – pity they are playing so early!!

It feels kind of weird only having Christmas with half my kids, but we haven’t seen Gramps’s family for eight years and thought it was only fair to give them a turn at Christmas. $4,000.00 later … eek!

Merry Unchristmas for today, Danman, and I hope you and your brother have the best day on real Christmas.

The best Christmas I ever had was spent with just my sister and me and my three babies many years ago when she was living in a share house in Sydney.

Sometimes it really is just the most unexpected days that turn out to be the most special.

I hope you have a very groovy day!

Danman 12:38 pm 21 Dec 08

So are we not taking submissions for x-mas trees anymore ?

Having a christmas of types today as most my fam is overseas, my wife will be wrking until 4pm and it will just be me and my brother …

We had family x-mas on melbourne cup day – so today its with friends who will be working on Thursday.

Granny 10:35 am 21 Dec 08

The phantom fraudulent enterer would sound cooler.

: )

What are you doing for Christmas?

Bundybear 9:16 am 21 Dec 08

Indeed Granny, I am, I am, sniff.

That is indeed very excellent news of the best possible kind.

Merry Christmas indeed.

The fraudulent enterer.

Granny 11:45 pm 20 Dec 08

Well, I must admit to being surprised that Bundy has got himself into disgrace like this – he’s usually such a well-behaved little bear, aren’t you Bundy?

I’m sure it’s all a terrible misunderstanding!

I must admit a bacon-and-eggs bauble is uncommon, and relatively unique one would think! That’s rather a trendsetting tree – pity there is not a photo, nor of your tree Danman. Actually nobody is really interested in the trees, they just want to see into everybody else’s houses ….

; )

Well, my Christmas shopping is nearly finished – nothing for me and Gramps so far, but everybody else has done rather extraordinarily well, and we have certainly done our bit for the economy.

However, I have just received the best Christmas present that I could ever, ever hope to have in a million years, except I might not get to unwrap it for a couple of years.

We have known since 2007 that Rett Syndrome, the disability my daughter suffers from, may be reversible.

However, one of my family recently donated $500 to the Australian research fund as a Christmas present to us. That was moving enough – we were pretty choked up – but they have sent a letter saying that they’re hoping to start clinical drug trials on humans within the next 1 – 2 years!!

I was expecting this to be at least a decade away.

So that is my very special Christmas gift. It’s only a letter, but it is the gift of hope.

I just wish you all the most dreams-come-true Christmas ever. Merry Christmas, everybody!!

Love and hugs,

I caught the 438 or 9 because it ran along chuculba and not canopus cres – I caught the 437 when there was nada else – lived in Musca Pl Giralang from 1978 to 1996.

I sent a pic of my tree in last night but its yet to be actioned….

staria 8:53 pm 20 Dec 08

Everybody knows the cool people caught the 439

Nice to have a real tree there, had to go with the plastic one myself this year, and the fibre optics don’t even work 🙁

Did manage to get the niece and nephew going in a bauble making sweatshop though, so I have lovely home made decorations which is lovely – especially the stuffed up snow turned into bacon and eggs!!

Thumper 6:50 pm 20 Dec 08

I lived in Giralang back in the late 80s/ early 90s. in fact my kids went to Giralang primary 😉

Bundybear 4:56 pm 20 Dec 08

I am deeply offended that my “in good faith” entry has been dubbed fraudulent. HHrrrummph!!! Just because my brother in SA can’t be trusted to send me authentic items -he has a bit of a drinking problem unlike a gentleman of my highborn nomenclature – and I just wanted to play, but I didn’t have a tree – Sob! (Gets up and heads for the fridge)
