The weather outside is frightful...

It's 12 degrees at Shelmars and Mijmy's. It's so cold, Weldon can not get downstairs to the Way station, 'cause there closed!!!

Poor Ave is at Kribcers, the cafe' where she's only around the corner, but we hope she doesn't get frost bit on this cold, dark night...

The grand is snuggled all comfy on the couch, while Mijmy flipped through channels...just like a grouch! Now, why be grouchy when it's almost Christmas day?

Well, he's upset 'cause there isn't enough money for Christmas; again! Yea, sure, Shelmar has made each family member something; but Mijmy could not give Shelmar any money for extras: (in other words, he's getting nothing for Christmas THIS year!)

Shelmar is in front of her 'puter, all cosy and warm, 'cause she has a secret caught in her heart. Even though there ain't much to go round now, soon, very soon, the stockings will be full of good cheer!

You see, she also was in this contest mentioned before, and won the listing Queen crown...for listing, of course!

What happens when you list? Well, you sell, sell sell! You make money for presents for your loved ones to get. Then you wrap them all in silence... with a smug feeling of glee, 'cause you know you've got what everyone wanted to see!

The grand, with visions of sugar plums dancing in her head, said "Pappy, what is Nana doing with all the presents she has hid at my house? Well, Mijmy arose from the couch with such a clatter, Shelmar sprang from her computer to see what was the matter!
"What PRESENTS do you have hidden at Ave"s" he ask in a hush.

Why, the presents I bought when I got paid for my sales! You did not ask me if I had had sales, you just told me I'd have to figure out something to make for most of our gifts...

They where all so happy later that night, when Mijmy declared" Shalmar saved our Christmas! What a delight!
