Christmas Advent Blog Adventure: day 17

A response in avoidance of the Daily Post’s Writing Prompt

Welcome to Day 17 of the Great Advent Blog Adventure!  For today, the two topics I will explore are:

From the Christmas Postathon ( A special gift you have given or received.

And from the Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories (  Tell us about your favorite Christmas stories and your memories of Christmases past.

Another Christmas memory I have forgotten:  a special gift I gave or received.   I’d like to think I’ve given some memorable gifts over the years, but I honestly can’t remember if I made anyone cry (sounds like a good way to gauge the “specialness” of a gift…)  And I know I’ve received some pretty special gifts over the year.  The flowers Kevin wrapped (and almost killed) for our first Christmas, the marathon necklace from my uncle (not technically a Christmas gift), and Marvel the Mustang from mom and dad when I was young (I don’t know what ever happened to Marvel…).  All this thinking about gifts reminds me now of one of my favourite Christmas stories by O Henry which was all about giving up something to give to the one you love.  Sappy, I know, but memorable…

And now, some memorable kitty pictures!

  1. Just found out that my daughter is severely allergic to cats. That makes all three of us. Oh well. No cats for us ever. Sad.

  2. Kitties make good memories. 🙂

  3. Sappy’s ok😊 and so are kitties.
