Advent Tidings

Christmas is coming, the geese are getting fat
Please to put a penny in the old man's hat;
If you haven't got a penny, a ha'penny will do,
If you haven't got a ha'penny then God bless you!

Is that one of my mother's fat geese? She'll be thrilled. I'll tell her it is, even if it isn't.

Have a great Sunday.

Is that a CBFamily goose?

I never heard that before .. is it called Advent Tidings? Isn't Advent on December 12? E/Inquiring Jews need to know!

The geese aren't the only ones getting fat. After Thanksgiving, gah, need to join Marie Osmond on NutriSystem.

CBW-- That is, indeed a CBGoose!
Laura--It's an old English Nursery Rhyme about giving to the needy....
Daryl--LOL--Today is the First Sunday in Advent. There are four of them;) I can bring you to church next Sunday to teach you our ways!!
Ellen--Please do not get me started. Now I think I'll have some pie for lunch....

Yes, Christmas is sneaking up fast. But we won't have goose, we'll have a spiral ham.
