The postman delivered a card. It was posted from the other side of the globe — from EJ's brother.
This year EJ did not receive any photos showing the amount of snow they get that side. Over here, in forever summer, it is rain, rain and more rain.
Tomorrow is Christmas. It is also Captain Jack Sparrow HAWK's Gotcha Day. This Christmas is his fourth with us.
On behalf of roommates, grand dame Cinders, haughty Tanya, pretty Pebble, whimsical Winnie, rotund Kenggy, our trusted CHAIR and our human EJ, this is Captain Jack Sparrow HAWK wishing all friends, 4-legged, 2-legged, 3-legged included, a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
May Peace, Love and Prosperity follow you always.

The green plastic stool is the perfect height to sit on to work on the laptop placed on a friend's unwanted old TV stand on wheels.
EJ wondered why Cinders always hang around when EJ worked at the laptop and realised the reason after a brief break to the toilet.
It was a hostile takeover.
EJ had no choice but to take out the tiny child-sized wooden chair used during much younger days in elementary/primary school. It was uncomfortable to sit on as an adult body could not fit in properly.
To prevent more hostile takeovers, EJ now sits on another plastic stool of almost the same height.
Cinders loves that little green plastic stool!
