THE EIGHTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS PARTY
Surely, Sallie had misheard the lyrics as she dozed in the chair…but no, the doorbell rings and there stand “Jingles”, the neighborhood St. Bernard…Around his neck was a little keg…we suspect it was peppermint schnapps, but Sallie immediately confiscated the cask AND his keys…and ordered him to stay the night…
“K-9 Bob will get after you,” Sallie warned Jingles, “if he catches you with that keg.” Jingles agreed to stay the night and joined the party, leading the singing with, “I saw mommy kissing Santa Claus…arf, arf, barf, barf..”
That Jingles has a heart of gold and he’s got big bells to boot!
