The Nutcracker, Talbot's Peak Style

Ok, the post is now up. For that one person who saw my place holder, thanks. ;) For everyone else, here's the story that started out as a simple bit of flash fiction before it ran all out of control. But I think I shall leave the man-candy at the bottom. Merry Christmas, everyone!

 The Nutcracker, Talbot's Peak Style

I settled on to the couch with a big bowl of popcorn and a huge mug of eggnog, wrapped up in my favorite comfy blanket, ready to begin my Christmas Eve ritual of watching the late showing of the Nutcracker on PBS. Yes, I know it’s cheesy, but I love all the melodramatic music and fantasy of this holiday tradition. I first watched it live when I was eight, and Lex took me to see it my first Christmas with him. He’d given me my first ever Christmas dress, a beautiful green velvet and plaid taffeta little girl’s cocktail dress complete with a black velvet opera cape, little black kitten heel pumps, and an honest to goodness white fur muff to tuck my hands in. He said it was a ‘proper tradition of my people, and like all traditions, it was horrible but good for me to experience nonetheless.’

Big Cat by-the-numbers ~

"I would rather be exposed to the inconveniencies attending too much liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it. " -Thomas Jefferson (1791)

"All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing." - Edmund Burke

"It's easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled."  Mark Twain

"Only a fool fights in a burning house." Klingon saying.

'A standing military force, with an overgrown Executive will not long be safe companions to liberty.'—James Madison

JFK... to paraphrase... Washington D.C. has the best of both worlds. Northern hospitality. And southern efficiency.

The most powerful weapon is the human soul on fire.

~ Have a lovely and merry December ~ 


And, May you live the dreams of your heart, not in interesting times...

Merry little Christmas kisses from the Kougar...
