Wishlist for the 12 Days of Christmas

 

**********************

.

 

As my regular readers know I have been assaulted by the shambling hordes of The Walking Dead in recent weeks following my blog statement “I’m Not Crazy, but my Zombie Crew may be” …

So I was a little shocked – but delighted — when @kysilka came at me with the idea to host a Twelve Days of Christmas blogathon! It was, I thought, a chance to escape the rotting flesh for a few moments and bring my readers back to the days when my freak flag wasn’t flying full mast.

Ummm, yeah,…. about that.

Like everything else in recent weeks, it didn’t turn out exactly like I planned…because as soon as I sat down to think about what I would want my true love to bring me, welllllll, you’ll see ….

.

 

How it works: Participating bloggers are putting up their personal version of the “Twelve Days of Christmas” on their blogs and leaving their post URLs in the comment section below this post.

.

 

So here it is and try not to cry …. Juliette’s Twelve Days of Christmas dedicated to my TBFF Pauline, a.k.a. @AspiringMama without whom I literally could not have done this …

    Hey, lady! Somehow, I just knew you’d find a way to zombie-up a children’s Christmas story. Nice job.

    lol This was a riot.

    Here’s mine. It’s longggg so bring food and a drink.

    There are no zombies. I know. I’m fired. But I had to get the vamps out of the way before I could make it to zombie camp. Deal with it. I did bring 13 mojo bags to place around the next camp so we can all get some sleep at least.
