What's Going On Here?

I wanted to share a joke with you, but because I found such cute pictures, I will sneak them in also. Okay, the joke first.

Shopper:"Don't you think these eggs are rather small?"
Storekeeper: Yes I do. That's the trouble with farmers these days. They are so anxious to sell their eggs, they take them out of the nests way too soon."




And now for the finishing touch!

More of the pre-Christmas Story. From MARY'S Viewpoint!


Today was cloudy and dark; a gloomy sort of day. Not even my
companions whom I regularly meet at the well were not in the mood
to linger and chat for long. I guess it is because there is a chill in the air.
The clouds are dark, and lowering. Quite likely by nightfall the early rains will have begun in earnest. It sure feels like a day for huddling in our mud brick homes as close as possible to the little fire in the brazier!

I wonder how my long-time friends will treat me once they can tell
that I am carrying a tinokilittle child. Will they give me the look that
so many reserve for aant’atwomen, of ill repute? I shiver to think of it!
