It’s a knitted crèche, y’all

Spotted on top of a post box along the high street in the town of Tenterden, Kent. Here it is in color. The things you can do in a high trust society.

Not high trust for long, I’m afraid. I don’t know if you’ve read that ‘refugees’ – young single men of military age from perfectly safe countries – have been pouring over the channel, hundreds a day. The government has been housing them in four star hotels, feeding them and giving them a spending allowance, and no one knows why.

We’ve just learned a whole bunch are going to be billeted a few miles from us. There go my chickens.

But enough sadness. It’s Christmas Eve Eve. We’ve had the last of the deliveries, more food than we can possibly eat before it goes off (it’s tradition). Picked up the turkey. Wrapped all the presents (not really – we follow the Way of the Gift Bag). Pick out a Christmas special for TV tonight and we’re good to go.

Merry Christmas, everyone! See you on Boxing Day.

Merry Christmas everyone. We had a foot of snow last night, then it rained buckets, now it’s flash freezing again and everything is coated in powdered sugar…at least we still have power and internets!

It doesn’t look knitted.

It looks creche-ed.


I’ll see myself out.

I ran to the Home Depot up the road the other day. Watched a couple, in nice white (pristine) Nikes, clothes still had package creases, NOT English speakers running about taking selfie’s…in effing Home Depot. As bad as you think it is there you can not imagine the scope of the invasion from our southern border here.

And Happy Christmas Eve Eve! Hubby and I braved the shitshow today to stock the bar. My almost 90 year old mother was pissed we didn’t take her along. This is why I drink.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to Ms Weasel, Uncle Badger, and all (regular, periodic, and lurkers) here.

Merry Christmas to Badger House, and all who dwell within.
And Merry Christmas to all of Stoaty’s friends and family. I hope you all have a lovely and peaceful day.

Merry Christmas, fellow minions! The big day has dawned here (well… just about, it doesn’t seem very keen), there are presents beneath the tree, vast quantities of turkey and booze lie ahead of us but we’re tough mustelids, somehow we’ll struggle through!

Happiness, health and peace to you all.

Merry Christmas to all! It’s beef Wellington and scalloped potatoes here with creme brûlée for desert. More wine, spirits and sparkling wine than any household could desire. What a great day!

Global climate heat wave here! It’s 48F after the bomb blizzard that ate ‘Merica with the worst ever winter storm since the last worst ever winter storm bringing us the fabled snow the experts said children would never see again.

With ham and fixings and sleepy Pomchees all around to moderate our temps on this lovely, Harry and Megan free Christmas afternoon!

We here at chez Durned hope the denizens of Badger House and all Weasel’s other imaginary internet friends have had a splendid day and wish you all many more.
