    ......In Texas

    T'was the night before Christmas in TEXAS


    T'was the night before Christmas
    In Texas, you know,
    Way out on the prairie
    (Without any snow).

    Asleep in their cabin
    Were Texas Bob and Clara Sue,
    A-dream' of Christmas
    Like me and like you.

    Not stockings, but boots,

    At the foot of their bed
    For this was in Texas,
    What more need be said

    When all of a sudden

    From out the still night,
    There came such a ruckus
    It gave me a fright!

    And I saw 'cross the prairie

    Like a shot from a gun,
    A loaded-up buckboard
    Come on at a run.

    The driver was "Geein",

    And 'hawin', with a will.
    The hosses (not reindeer)
    He drove with such skill.

    "Come on there, Buck, Pancho

    And Prince, to the right!
    There'll be plenty of travelin'
    For you-all tonight."

    The driver in Levi's

    And shirt that was red,
    Had a ten-gallon Stetson
    On top of his head.

    As he stepped from the buckboard

    He was really a sight
    With his beard and moustaches
    So curly and white.

    As he burst in the cabin

    The children awoke,
    And both so astonished
    That neither one spoke.

    And he filled up their boots

    With such presents galore
    That neither could think
    Of a single thing more.

    When Texas Bob recovered

    The use of his jaws,
    He asked, in a whisper
    "Are you Santa Clause?"

    Am I the REAL Santa?

    Well, what do you think?"
    And he smiled as he gave
    A mysterious wink.

    Then he leapt in his buckboard,

    And called back, in his drawl,
    "To all children of TEXAS,
    MERRY CHRISTMAS, All Y'all!"

    From the house of Zeus to all the posters on CU. Wishing all a Joyous & Merry Christmas for we are all blessed with the true meaning for the season


    The 21st century. The age of Smart phones and Stupid people.

    It is said that branches draw their life from the vine. Each is separate yet all are one as they share one life giving stem . The Bible tells us we are called to a similar union in life, our lives with the life of God. We are incorporated into him; made sharers in his life. Apart from this union we can do nothing.

    Thanks for the Texas Christmas story, Zeus. So glad for your good news---a true Christmas present for us all to have you posting here more often. Here's a thanks to God for your beating back that cancer.

    And here's an early toast to a better year in 2012 for us all on CU.

    Merry Christmas, my friend. :)
