MERRY CHRISTMAS to all of my followers, along with my regular and occasional readers ..... And for the Christmas Friday Funny .... it's courtesy of Marsha ..... ENJOY
And all of us seniors were looking our best.
Our punchbowl held prune juice plus three drops of sherry.
That Santa would bring us soft candy and soap.
We surely were lucky to be there with friends,
Secure in this residence and in our Depends.
Like angels in snowsuits and penguins on rafts.
And from them she'd crafted a holiday wreath.
Reflecting our candle's magnificent glow.
Was creamy warm oatmeal with sprinkles on top.
Then puree of fruitcake was spooned on each plate.
The social director then had us play games,
Like "Where Are You Living?" and "What Are Your Names?"
Proclaiming that reindeer were nothing but goats.
In hopes that at bedtime she still would be there.
Made outdoors seem noon to the old folks below.
(But we are so deaf that it just didn't matter).
A strange little fellow flew in through the door,
Then tripped on the sill and fell flat on the floor.
He jiggled and chuckled and patted each head.
Our social- security checks had arrived.
Till the clock tinkled out its soft eight-p.m. Stroke.
While nurses distributed nocturnal meds.
Before long you'll be with us, We wish you the best!
And, since that was the last Friday Funny of 2015 .... it was time to deploy the old Random number generator - to pick the winner of the 2015 Friday Funny prize
