This is my collection of Pipka Santas on the the mantle in our living room. Wish you could see the detail on the figurines - they're just lovely. All of these Pipkas have animals as part of the design. Gotta get my critters at Christmas too. :o)

Have a joyous holiday season and enjoy this little Christmas poem from me to you.

T’was the day before Christmas

and in Cyberland

the ladies of Topdown

are all feeling grand.

I feel fortunate, indeed,

to ride with this crew;

they’re insightful, delightful

and write GREAT books, too!

We love vampires and fairies,

cowboys and cops,

homespun and historicals

and of course, Special Ops.

We write to entertain you

and we treasure your thoughts.

We’re so happy you’re reading

our blogs and our plots.

We’ve had a fantastic year

as our books will attest

and we LOVE all our riders.

You guys are the best!

Lots of hugs we all send you.

From our course we won’t veer.

Here’s a promise from Topdown:

There’ll be more books next year!

So on behalf of Deb, Lois and Kathy

Michele, Helen and Susie,

Betina, Christie and Kylie

and me, Cindy, (the floozy)

Merry Christmas everyone!!!

We hold you all very dear.

It goes without saying, but...

Have a Happy New Year!!!

Hi Rossella. Well, as you can see, I'm NOT much at writing poems - but at least it rhymes and every word is from the heart!

Buon Natale to you too!
