Hope you have a wonderful festive holiday
ps – Mayhem, Chaos, I hope that you’ve both been good enough to make it onto Santa Claws’ present list and that you get everything you’ve asked for (ok, your human says apart from the fridge opener Chaos, that ain’t gonna happen)

Hope your Holidays are the best ever. I’ll miss the Misdaventures on BOX-ing day. But that is probably the best gift you could give May.
Wishing the three of you a very Merry Christmas, may it include food-y goodness, nip, sparkly mice and some fetch.
Happy Holidays! I love playing scrabble (I’m on Words with Friends if anyone is interested). so I found that article super interesting.

Aww, that’s a cute picture of May.
I’ve read and enjoyed a few of the books you’ve read and a couple of others I hope to read soon. We have a long weekend ahead of us, so who knows… I might find the time.
Have a wonderful holiday, Chris!!

A recent post from Tracy..What I Read Last Week
Merry Christmas! I hope the holidays have been good for you.
Love the pictures of writers and their cats.
Even better than Terry Gilliam’s Christmas card is his instruction video linked in the Christmas card post.
Cool natural world photos!
A glow in the dark crowbar doesn’t sound half bad if you need to crush someone’s skull in the dark. Course you lose the surprise factor. 😉
Hmm… I’m not sure my butt is all that distinct.
