Laugh Until You Cry - My Favorite Carol


I am not out of Christmas carols – but for some reason, another Carol has been on my mind a lot, so without any further ado, here is my favorite Carol!


This is the song that I have had stuck in my head ever since I started putting these midweek posts together. Though it is not a Christmas song, it seems appropriate.

Now that I have you laughing, you won’t notice that we are at the end of our little adventure for this year. So, go out and enjoy your holiday, and when you have to laugh, remember Carol and her friends because Tim and Harvey will quickly have you howling in the aisles.

I know that we had some bumps in our journey this year, people were sick and then healed, others lost family members and have had to heal, but through it all, we have stayed upright and moving forward. I wanted to end on a belly laugh with no trace of a tear. I am glad that we had this time together.

Blu wags his tail in happy anticipation of a New Year. I swear, Tim and Harvey will have you wagging your butt like Mrs. HAwiggins, so go have a laugh.

Now, maybe do a little shopping for yourself from these lovely gifts.
