I believe it's plagiarism... but all in good mutation.

Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the RVMdom
Not a mutant was stirring, not even a new one..
The stockings were hung by the dash with care,
In hopes that RVM0 soon would be there.

The mutants were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of curiosities danced in their heads.
And mamma in her kimono, and I in my flannels,
Had just tuned our ponders for a long nights mutation .

When out on the picnic table arose such a clatter,
I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter.
Away to the window I flew like a mutant,
Lifted the shades and pulled back the screen.

The moon on the breast of the morning dew
Gave the lustre of mid-day to objects anew.
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But a miniature sleigh, and eight tinny reindeer.

With a little old driver, so lively and quick,
I knew in a moment it must be RVM Nick.
More rapid than eagles his coursers they came,
And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name!

"Now Dasher! now, Dancer! now, Prancer and Vixen!
On, Comet! On, Cupid! on, on Donner and Blitzen!
To the top of the palm tree! to the top of the wall!
Now dash away! Dash away! Dash away all!"

As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly,
When they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky.
So up to the slide-toppers the coursers they flew,
With the rainbow rider full of RV Upgrade gift certificates, and St Mutant too.

And then, in a twinkling, I heard on the roof
The prancing and pawing of each little hoof.
As I drew in my head, and was turning around,
In through the door St Mutant came with a bound.

He was dressed all in shorts and flip flops, and t-shirt -
His clothes were all covered with Hawaiian desings.
A bundle of gift cards he had flung on his back,
And he looked like a parrot head, just opening his pack.

His eyes-how they twinkled! his dimples how merry!
His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry!
His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow,
And the beard of his chin was as white as the snow.

The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth,
And the smoke it encircled his head like a wreath.
He had a broad face and a big round belly,
That shook when he laughed, like a bowlful of Martys jelly!

He was chubby and plump, a right jolly old mutant,
And I laughed when I saw him, in spite of myself!
A wink of his eye and a twist of his head,
Soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread.

He spoke not a word, but went straight to his mutating,
And filled all the stockings, then turned with a beef jerky.
And laying his finger aside of his nose,
And giving a nod, out the door and down steos he did go.

He sprang to his rainbow rider, to his team gave a whistle,
And away they all flew like RVM on his to PA.
But I heard him exclaim, ‘ere he drove out of sight,
"Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good-mutation!"
Steve, you told the Dickens out of that mutant story. Good job!

Great job Steve! Just the touch to start off a great Christmas Eve.

Barb and I want to offer our warmest holiday wishes to all our Mutant Brothers and Sisters wherever you may be. Have a safe and happy Merry Christmas and we will catch up with you on the back side.

MERRY CHRISTMAS, HAPPY HANUKKAH, AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR to all of our mutant friends. I sure am itchin' to hit the road.


Steve:
What do I do to sign up for GC REDO? Are we going zip-lining again? I think we aught to have a windshield decorating contest and let everyone vote for a winner, we need to give Tim some competition. Have you talked to Wayne about how the Texas Boomers do meals. It sure sounded easy.

Wonderful, Steve! But doesn't Annie have anything for you to do? 😉

You remind me: we should have the fireplace going for atmosphere. It can blow cool air, very useful here in the near-tropics 😝 while still making RVM0 feel at home.

We wish all mutants everywhere and your families a lovely Christmas and all that that means to you.

Bravo Steve....

Merry Christmas mutants...

Just finished watching the movie "MUD", with Mathew McConahey..... Reese Witherspoon
It was filmed in Dumas, AR, where I lived for 27 years.... Town of 5,000... Taught school there.
The best part of that was the Arkansas River, the river was wide and lots of sandbars.
If you watch the movie, you will see where i lived from age 21 to 49.......
Smile... Then I moved to Little Rock..
Then I met Larry


Thank you Larry
Happy Holidays.....

We have seen the movie :thumbup::thumbup:

That's two thumbs up from us. We just watched Christmas Story 2 - it's not as good as the original and it's hard to have different "old man". Still - seen the other dozens of times... lol.
We be having RGV Mexican food for Christmas lunch with Don and Sandee. Something different for sure.
