A Christmas In Bloggyland Tour

Welcome! To the 1st Annual Christmas In Bloggyland Tour! Hosted by the lovely and gracious MuseSwings.

Wahooo!! Y'all saddle up! I'm all set!
It's time for Christmas In Sparky Land.

Sweetie, and a few unemployed elves, helped me decorate our humble abode in preparation for your arrival ...

... and Santa stopped by to help decorate the 2 wheeled conveyances ...

I've even put the dogs in a spare room for the evening. They'll be happier in there anyway. TVLand is showing back-to-back Lassie reruns. That should placate them for awhile.

I've got my bestest togs on (note the new motorcycle in the background for quick getaways) ...

So, don't be shy.
Help yourself to the vino and chocolate treats while you're here.
I have Jury Duty and have to skedaddle,
but I don't think they'll mind if I have a little nip?? .... [hic - 'scuse me]

I drug out the extra sofa to crash on for those who imbibe in a little too much with the hair of the dog (I'm looking at you Linda … ha ha). [hic - pardon me AGAIN!] Pass a cordial would ya? Maybe that'll mask that happy odor on my breath.

And to pass the time, a little photo show of Christmas' past featuring Sparky and Wiregrass Steve. That's me above in 1961 (I was 5 years old). Look at that pose. Gosh, even then I was a little ham. "Pam the Ham" is what they called me. If the camera was on, I was in front of it! ...

... and Sweetie's photo was taken in 1952 (he was 4). He was cute even then. :o) His mom said he was telling Santa he didn't believe in him. Pretty nervy for a kid approaching the Zero Hour of Christmas I would say! [lol]

Y'all come back soon now! Thanks for stopping by! 'Bye 'Bye!
Have A Very Merry Christmas!!

Sparky! Thanks, I think I'll just have a little sip of that drinkie poo! Hurry back from Jury duty - we'll all save plenty of snacks and liquid refreshments for you. Oh, and Mr. Peck says he would like to have a "word" with you. The motorcycle is a great idea! Much faster than my fleet of sleighs.

Woooooo hoooooooo! Way to go, Sparky! You know I'm going to gain at least 10 pounds on this tour! :))

MuseSwings said...

Doh! I fixed the link to your place! Everyone was piling into someone elses house. What a surprise! I hope they had enough Cheerio's to go around.

Linda said...

Oh sorry about, Mrs.Spots (yes, that is her name) she will be sure to mind her manners, err, hair the next time around, LOLOL.

What a beautiful visit I had with you and this bloggy trip. However, it seems that me and Trish ended up at a mansion, LOLOLOLOLOL.

HAVE A BLESSED DAY and don't give the court a hard time, lolol. La ya dear friend.

Linda said...

PS pssttttttttt...I love your new look here. Really I do..smiles

Sparky ♥ ∞ said...

That's OK MuseSwings. My computer (not me!!) makes mistakes *many* times. [giggle]

Hi Petra, Welcome to the tour! Glad you could make it. :o) I'm gaining weight from all the sweets too ... the imbibing is probably not helping much either! :o) [hic]

Hi Linda, Thank you, thank you vewy much dawlink! The former blog background was too difficult for me to read. Dim vision from 'old age' (or too much vino??), you know. [hic] ♥ ∞

Where can I get one of those sofas? I have got to have one to put next to my little pony chair!

Merry Christmas to Redbird Acres!

Shellmo said...

Just hopped off my sleigh to visit you on the bloggy xmas tour! The home is decorated wonderfully! I'll think I'll have some more wine and go crash in the corner somewhere! Stop by and visit me at the log cabin!

Bonnie said...

I like that sofa! And I like your song list too.

Dropped in on the Bloggyland Christmas Tour

Buttercream Cottage said...

Great tour. I love the couch!

Sparky ♥ ∞ said...

Boy, everybody likes the sofa. [hic] And the wine (wonder why?? ... ha ha) I might have to leave it out for everyone to lounge on. :o)

Thanks for stopping by y'all!! And warmest Thank You's for the kind words. CYA after my Jury Duty this afternoon. Can't wait to see what you post Bonnie.

Merry Christmas!! ♥ ∞

I LOVE that cow sofa!

Merry Christmas

Expressions By Devin said...

I really love the cow sofa!!!!I hope you and your family have a wonderful Holiday season!!!

Janeen said...

Those pictures of you and your Man are ADORABLE! I love it! So how did Jury Duty go today? Well, I'm off to visit the others!

On another note, my home computer monitor died last night after the kids played a game on it. It's 8 years old, I got my use out of it. I guess all I want for Christmas is a new computer monitor! So I'll be on remotely until then so not to worry if you don't see me post as often!

marianne said...

After standing in line I spend some time on your awesome couch!
Enjoyed my stay!
Thanks!
Merry Christmas

Hi baaaaacccckkk! Jury Duty was uneventful. It was actually enjoyable.

I'm so glad the sofa was a big hit. I saw it in the store and just *had* to have it!

OMGoodness Janeen, sorry to hear about the monitor. You still have MuseSwings credit card? Quick! Run down to Staples and get another monitor ... or two. [tee hee] Muse could write it off as a tax dodge, uh, loss right? [lol] Well, I won't worry if you're quiet for a bit. Totally understand.

Thanks for the kind words and, again, thanks everyone for stopping by! You've all made the day SUPER FUN!!! ♥ ∞

Margaret Ann said...

Sorry I missed you...thanks for all the goodies...I was having a chocolate attack adn you saved the day for sure!!! Merry Christmas...OoooH I hear my sleigh bells a ringing..best move on! :)

Devoted said...

Hey, Sparky, if that extra couch comes up missing...don't come snooping around my ranch... what's the next stop? I'll just get the truck started....

Sparky ♥ ∞ said...

Hi Margaret Ann ... I'm glad the chocolate helped the attack. I need a dark chocolate 'fix' every evening after my meal. [drool]

Hi Devoted ... I knew it! You gotta watch those quiet types really closely ... HAR HAR Drive careful now, hear? :o)

Thanks for dropping by y'all! :o))) ♥ ∞

Sparky, there are been so many favorable comments about your couch. I would keep an eye on it. (If you know what I mean) Some of our friends enjoy 'borrowing' things so it might show up later in someone else's abode. I love the way you have decorated your home for the holidays. Maybe Santa will bring you a new motorcycle next week. later, trish

JANE said...

Great Bloggyland Tour, too bad with Jury Duty you couldn't "abide" with the rest of us!! Are the dogs glad to have their digs back now and I know the cow-crash-couch is really their's, isn't it, LOL??

Anna Lefler said...

Now THAT'S a sofa! Yesss!

Stopping in from the Christmas in Bloggyland tour...y'all still up?

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

:^) Anna

Carey's Corner said...

Very entertaining tour. Sometimes jury duty can be like a visit to the dentist. Painful and numbing. I'm glad you a good session.

MuseSwings said...

Sparky! So glad to see you have returned unscathed! It was nice of Cary G. to acompany you, but we thought either you were "sequestered" with him or you had been sharing your political views with the Judge and got put in the slammer. We're sitting by the bonfire as I speak trying to figure how much bail is in bloggymoney. But you're back so that's good. There's still plenty of food and drink over here!

Rosezilla said...

Ok, I've obviously gotta get in line to comment on the wonderful sofa! Wowsers. You could sell tickets just to sit on it and have a picture made. I have a friend who's daughter painted her room with cow spots and got a ceiling fan that looked like an udder... she'd kill for that couch!

Sparky ♥ ∞ said...

Hi Muse, Yeah our Judge Boggs IS gorgeous (and I mean Cary Grant gorgeous!). Wahoo! Sequester me! Sequester me! [lol] Hey, what is the going rate of exchange for Bloggymoney anyway? Aw well. I'll pop over to your place and see if there's any food or DRINK left over. Hope I'm not too late! :o)

Hi Rosezilla, Glad you could stop by. You can have the sofa now, the party's over. It doesn't match my new look ala Goodwill anyway. [ha ha] ♥ ∞

Patty said...

Sorry I am late on the tour, but got busy shopping yesterday and couldn't get around to everyone. I have enjoyed your bloggyland post and will be back to visit again soon.
