King Me!

When I was a seeker
I sought both night and day
I asked the Lord to help me
and he showed me the way....

Tonight I was a seeker.  I was seeking my Christmas Tree stand and I had no idea where I had stashed it a mere 11 months ago.  I sought high and low, over laundry piles and under spare hangers and blankets.  It occurred to me, while I was seeking, that it was no wonder the Kings weren't exactly on time to the Bethlehem Birthday Bash.  They were probably looking for the stuff they needed:  pieces of gold, a Myrrh traveling caddy, a fistful of Frankincense and a couple bags of camel chow.  Suddenly I didn't feel so bad that it took me awhile to find my well-stored stand.  I was in pretty good company.

Getting a tree, getting it inside and in the stand and watered is definitely a step in the holiday direction.  The cats are pretty happy to have something new and outsidey to sniff.  I'm happy that the tree hasn't fallen over yet, and it has a stand to stand in.  On?  Tomorrow I'll see what decorations I can find and see if we can't get this show on the road.

I bet the kings said that too.

Generally I like ethnic nativity sets,
but I don't know about this one.
The main guy looks a bit like the Frito Bandito,
and what....did he EAT THEM?

Please Please Please Please tell me
they all arrived on a Fischer-Price Bus.

Camel, I don't know who you think you're fooling.
There is a TSA agent ready to
"make your acquaintance."

Toilet paper tube nativity set.
I'm not sure if it's for when you're flushed with excitement
or for when you don't give a crap.

The expression on the woman's face is priceless.
I'm not sure what I like the best:  The jazz hands,
or the "Oh Lord, WHY ME?" body posture.
She's probably the one that told the Kings to take a left
at Albuquerque.

Well, Rubber Ducky is THE ONE.
Not sure I can explain the duck on the left that has the pox.

Nativity Set or nine-pin bowling figurines?
You make the call.

Of course, I'm concerned about the guy on the left
who looks like he's in the middle of a hold-up.

I might really love this.
Those are the grooviest kings ever.
