He Always Drank Wine

Corrie and my favorite Christmas carol was sung at church for Midnight Mass. Here we are, sharing it with you. May your bridle always be silver, and your saddle always be priceless. Happy Christmas to all.

Oh stewball was a racehorse, and I wish he were mine.
He never drank water, he always drank wine.

His bridle was silver, his mane it was gold.
And the worth of his saddle has never been told.

Oh the fairgrounds were crowded, and stewball was there
But the betting was heavy on the bay and the mare.

And a-way up yonder, ahead of them all,
Came a-prancin and a-dancin my noble stewball.

I bet on the grey mare, I bet on the bay
If Id have bet on ol stewball, Id be a free man today.

Oh the hoot owl, she hollers, and the turtle dove moans.
Im a poor boy in trouble, Im a long way from home.

Oh stewball was a racehorse, and I wish he were mine.
He never drank water,he always drank wine.


Happy Holidays!

Jackie

Okay Okay, so the package was SUPPOSED to go in the mail saturday, but I lost track of time. And of course silly me forgot that the post office would be closed on Monday, and then again today because of Ford's death. So tomorrow it will finally be getting in the mail (of course with my luck I probably just jinxed it and it'll be thurs before it gets in!)

btw, I *think* I'm going to be coming to Italy for a visit in March. Still not sure of exact dates yet, but I'll email you soon to see what your schedule is like - I'd love to come hang out for a weekend!

Stewball is my kind of racehorse if he always drank wine. Vino italiano I should hope.

I'll be back in a week...physically, that is. Mentally I'll be somewhere else. ;-)

Hauoli Makahiki Hou!
