Neelin and Silver Heights were playing the seventh place game at press time. Twas the night before Christmas a twas the night before Christmas and All through the House not a creature was stirring except for that Louse. He packed and he loaded when no one could see his Auger his Rod and his one Man shanty. The gear was All piled by the Chimney with care in Hopes that his buddy would soon be there. His wife and his kids were All tucked in their Beds As he dug through the Freezer for fresh minnow Heads. Out of his pjs and into his Cap desperately hoping Shell sleep a til he gets Back. He crept Down the stairs and he loaded his gear his Best fishing Bud better soon be Here. When out on the Lawn there arose such a Clatter that Jerk finally made it but tripped on the ladder. Away from the window he Dove to the floor and hoped that no Light came from her door. When what to his wondering eyes did appear his buddy All dressed with a full Case of Beer. More rapid than Ever they loaded the truck if they Are caught at Home they Are stuck. Now move it or lose it you Ole bag of wind if we get caught i can not be your Friend. Then suddenly a burst of Light did appear the look on their face was nothing but fear. You loser you Jerk As she called us by name i caught you again at your Little game. From the top of the porch to the top of the Wall she yelled i and she screamed with her usual Moose Call. And then in a twinkle she hit the roof he heard the prancing and pawing of her Little hoofs. As he turned around he knew in his head it might be Christmas but he is still dead. She was dressed in a Robe All covered in fluff now go get your gear she yelled in a Huff. A bundle of gear he Flung on his Back he knew of his troubles As he opened his pack. His eyes How they twinkled his dimples not merry his Cheeks were like Wano a Ulberg gone fishing roses his nose like a Cherry. His droll Little Mouth was drawn like a Bow and the hair on his head went White As the Snow. The stump of the pipe he held tight in his Teeth and the smoke encircled his head like a Wreath he had a Broad Little face As he Hung it in shame its All buddy a fault As he pushed off the blame. He was Chubby and plump a fearful old Elf As she knew his ideas in spite of himself. A Wink of her Eye and a twist of her head soon gave him to know he had lots to dread. He spoke not a word and went straight to his work As she mumbled to herself that she married a Jerk. And laying her Finger aside of her nose she gave a nod up the staircase she Rose. He sprang to his feet As up the stairs she did go done to even try it she swung her head to and fro. I heard him exclaim As she went out of sight Quot merry Christmas to you dear and have a Good night Quot if you have any Good reports Send the details and a Contact name and number to Jig at Rig bait and tackle.
