Brrrr...Baby, It's Cold Outside

Right now, most of us in the US are in a cold snap. And cripes, it's not even winter yet. O_o Bet we'd all be a lot happier with the cold if we were one of these guys, huh?

Oh the kind of world we'd live in if we all could be that cute and cuddly. LOL

Hopefully I'll get an opportunity this coming weekend to go see a few of these guys. A local amusement park transforms the entire park for Christmas and there's a "polar walk" display where they've got a few penguins. It's cute and campy, but that's about how I like things.

Speaking of cute and campy, sat with the family earlier and watched the How the Grinch Stole Christmas cartoon. And it struck me how it, even after all these years, people could still learn a lesson from it.

So, I leave you with this:

And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow, 
stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so?

It came without ribbons. It came without tags. 
It came without packages, boxes or bags. 

And he puzzled and puzzled ’till his puzzler was sore. 
Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before.

What if Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store. 
What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more. 

- Dr. Seuss
