We Need a Little Christmas

1) At the beginning of this recording, Daffy says he hopes all his friends remember his size, style and favorite color. What piece of clothing would you like to add to your wardrobe? I've already added far too much

2) His friends are late for Daffy's holiday soiree. Think about the last get together you attended. Were you early, late or right on time? I was right on time

3) It hasn't a snowed a single flurry where Daffy is. Have you had to shovel yet? yes, yes I have. Quite a bit.

4) Daffy sings that he's looking forward to fruitcake. How about you? Are you a fruitcake fan? I can take it or leave it

5) Daffy is an American Black Duck. Their usual diet doesn't generally include fruitcake. These ducks more commonly dine on seeds, foliage and bugs. What was your most recent meal? I had a deli ham salad sandwich and locally made chips

6) The only Christmas card Sam has received so far this year is from her insurance agent. She never sees her agent socially. In fact, she doesn't think she's seen him at all in 2018. Have you received many cards this year? If so, were they from people you feel close to? two cards... one I am close to the other, not so much

7) When do you start holiday shopping: Christmas Eve, Thanksgiving/Black Friday, Halloween? I start in earnest sometime after Halloween

8) Sam was recently driven crazy by kids running through store aisles wearing elf hats with bells. Do you have any apparel that makes noise?
I do not, other than a pair of shoes that squeak on the floor of my classroom

9) This time of year is big for charitable fundraising. Here's your chance to plug a cause or organization that's near and dear to you. I upped my local donation game this year--the local animal shelter, the local veterans groups, the local homeless shelter--all sorts of local groups

  1. I like giving local. There's nothing wrong with the big national charities. ("God bless 'em," as Grandma would say.) But it's nice to feel connected to where we are, isn't it?

  2. I like giving local, too. I also don't generally give at this time of year but do it in April, after taxes, so I know where we stand financially. It makes me out of sync with everyone else but it works for me.

  3. We give to some local charities, too. We also like to shop local if what we want is available through a small business...good to help keep the shop owners from needing the other help!

  5. I know what you mean about squeaky shoes. I bet that gets fun with a bunch of high schoolers too.

  6. Hmm...I think that I will have a ham salad sandwich for lunch, I haven't had one in ages.
