  1. One Day After Christmas

    Author Unknown

    It's one day after Christmas
    I'm crabby and I'm broke.
    I'm so full of ham and fruitcake
    I think I'm gonna croak.

    It's nice to see the relatives
    I wonder when they'll leave.
    They've been camping in my bathroom
    since early Christmas Eve.

    They're eating everything in sight
    and sleeping in my bed.
    I been sacked out in the basement
    with my beagle, Fred.

    The relatives have all gone out
    and left their screaming brats.
    The toilet bowl is all plugged up
    and I can't find the cat.

    It's Christmastime at my house,
    the relatives are here.
    They eat me out of house and home.
    and drink up all my beer.

    I love the decorations,
    and the sleigh bells in the snow
    But I wish those pesky relatives
    would take their kids and go.

    Those cookie crunchers fed the dog
    a twenty pound rib roast.
    His feet are sticking in the air
    like skinny old fence posts.

    Now they're in a free-for-all,
    the girls against the boys.
    They're fighting over boxes
    'cause they're bored with all their toys

    My mother-in-law is snoring
    in my favorite TV chair.
    Those kids are stringing lights on her
    and tinseling her hair

    I oughta wake her up
    before the fireworks begin.
    But I wanna see those blue sparks fly
    when they plug her in.

  8. Happy Boxing Day, eh?

    This is my favorite holiday of the year, because Christmas next year is the farthest away it an be. Don't get me wrong, I'm no Scrooge, but I am soooooo happy when it's over.

    I equate it to hitting yourself in the head with a hammer, because it feels so good when you stop.[​IMG]

    I like that! LOL It can sometimes be so true. I love visitors and have them often but I also love it when they go and everything settles down and goes back to normal.​
