a fishy looking Christmas

Uncooperative Guppies
While they were decorating our classroom (which is now quite gaudy and spectacular with lights), the guys decided Jose and the Guppies needed to be decorated up as well. Window clings not only cling to windows, but they also cling to aquariums. Love those 9th graders.

I just had to tell you. This morning as I started to come awake I had "and a hive of silvery bees" in my head. I knew I knew it from your site; but I also woke knowing I knew it from somewhere else, too. And I finally got it: the Jumblies. My father used to read it to me when I was very very small and needed a bedtime story. I can hear his baritone now, "far and few, far and few..." it is the most wonderful memory.

Murr, Did you make my day, or what? I loved the image, hence the choice for blog title.
Those sorts of poems from Lear and A.A. Milne are things from childhood for me too! I have read them to my daughters as well, The Owl and the Pussycat was their favorite.
