That is the ugliest sweater I have ever seen,
Gold splatters on the red and green,
Background snowflakes adds some sheen,
Christmas balls – count ‘em, there’s sixteen.
Does that poem scream at you? Do you want to say, “That’s too much.” The end result is gauche. Too much.
So, keeping it very simple, I’m saying:
I’m off to see the kinfolks, the lovely, lovely kinfolks. —Not following the Yellow Brick Road, nor am I wearing red patent shoes, nor am I taking the dog. 😀 I fed the fish and watered the plants. Now I’m outta here. See you after Christmas.

About oneta hayes
Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...
Merry Christmas Oneta— May the blessings of the Lord rain over you and your family
Merry Christmas and safe travels, Oneta! Some of those sweaters do begin to approach Ugly Christmas Sweater status, but they’re part of the fun of the season. I guess!
Actually I thought they were quite pretty and festive for many years, but they are being a bit extreme now that people have started having Ugly Sweater contest, parties, and such. Merry Christmas, Linda. I bought a new Kindle Fire 10 so I will be able to read while I’m gone. My present to myself.
How wonderful! My present to myself is going to be the hardware to hang a couple of bird feeders at my new place — which, by the way, I love. In fact, I like it better than my old place. You never know!
Glad it was worth the move.
Christmas blessings to you and your family, Oneta. May God protect you on your travels and give you the joy only can provide🎄❤️
I receive your blessings with joy. You and your family be blessed with his Christmas joy.
Hey be safe out there traveling. Kindle is awesome I would have no blog without one
