Mrs. Scrooge??

Christmas is over
Only a few more days until I can clean Christmas up and stick it in the shed
for another year.
I am not a Christmas person
Not a holiday person of any sort
I much prefer ordinary days
there are some parts of Christmas that I do like,
One of those being my village.
That is one of the things I wish I could keep up all year round.
If I had a bigger house, I would devote one room to a village
I've always loved making miniatures
Model train sets, Lego villages, doll houses
So, this would be my favourite Christmas "tradition"
I do want to make a Christmas scrapbook
the pages featuring my favourite ornaments and other parts of Christmas that I do enjoy
So as I pack away Christmas for another year,
I may have to photograph the special things
Because, although I started out writing as Mrs Scrooge
I have to concede that
even I
enjoy some parts of Christmas.
And if that wasn't a rambling conglomeration of thoughts with no direction to them whatsoever
Then I don't know what it was

Harlem Crowns

A night on the town

At the expense of the P.S.O. boys basketball team
The Harlem Crowns
A downscaled version of the Harlem Globetrotters
This is my son warming up ....little does he know!!

These guys were absolutely hilarious

They had the girls laughing at the boys

The little kids laughing at those big teenagers

The parents laughing while trying to hold their cameras steady

The refs had to throw the rule book out

And the boys were able to laugh at themselves

After they got through with being embarrassed

If these guys come to your town

And you need a laugh

You've got to go

And if your kid thinks his team can beat them cause they can beat all the local schools

Tell him to think again!

because these guys will run circles around

Those big macho invincible

testosterone overloaded

High School Boys!
