Date: 17 Dec 15 - 07:01 PM

Gently pushed open, the door squeals on rusty hinges. He steps into a dusty, cobweb-strewn, room. Cold air wraps like a reverse blanket, enhanced by the hole in the roof.

From somewhere comes the sounds of tentacles slapping on jello. Somehow he knows it's lime jello.

"This'll take some doing," he thinks, and whistles for his trusty steed. The horse, jet black save for three white socks, gingerly enters. "Let's get this place working again," he says. "Please."

the swedish ladies have an aversion to dust and cobwebs and smelly horses so after they have shampooed the horse they get to going with their brooms and mop buckets. singing all the while and thinking of the krumkake they have stashed away.

Squiddy, helplessly smacking the surface of the frozen jello pit with he one free tentacle, lies deep below the ice, hoping that someone will warm the place up.

At the same time, the fella with the sword politely requests a glass of Neversweat whiskey for himself and another, larger, for his horse.

you did not. Swedish ladies can clean and cook and chop down trees and shampoo horses and never get dirty or sweaty or sudsy like the rest of us. And wait till you see what they made for the burgeoning crowd with no real food on hand..some oats from the horse's sack, a can of condensed milk, some berries that looked pretty much like lingon berries growing outside, a splash of brandy and voila, some Christmas pudding.

As the place warms, the ice on the windows panes starts to thaw. In some places this is not good, i.e. bad, because the ice was the "glass."

Meanwhile the horse (named "Bossy" after a cow) thoroughly enjoys the Swedish shampoo.

And the man with the sword downs another Neversweat.

He seemed to be looking for something in the flames, something lost years before ......... "I remember, he started.... I remember ............" He took a swig from the bottle, reminiscing in his mind, was that really true, did that really happen, was I really there, all those years ago ........

I'm glad that they got things right this year. I remember the year that someone sent for a Swedish misogynist by mistake. Once it was explained that a masseuse rubs people the right way and a misogynist rubs them the wrong way, the Swede was banished through the magic connecting tunnel to the Mudcat Recovery Ward and is now assisting Hurty Gertie in the Physical Therapy room....

Speaking about the tunnel to the hospital, it was chronicled in last summer's adventures in The Recovery Ward that the Squid had found himself a wife and a number of young squidlets were running about in the Tavern. Their number was diminished by a few having perished in an ill advised journey into the hospital, where the Squid and Liz The Squeak had to rescue the survivors. For now, the link to the hospital has been closed and secured. There are quite a few left, and they are gathering whatever they can find to use as ornaments on the yet undecorated tree, so keep a close watch on your belongings.....

The alligator came back through the alley gate and has assumed his usual role as bartender....

Liz is once again hogging the loo, and the usual line is growing and folks are beginning to grumble....

A long way away can be heard the sound of the dulcet tones of the Ozzies. It is so much further for them to come that they started walking right after last Christmas (although not backwards) bringing with them the smell of eucalyptus and wombat poo, a smell reminiscent of Christmases past. And dead stuff.

Muffled by winter wind, the distant thundering rumble of a 1948 Indian is heard on the cold air; the deep throb of it shakes the Tavern walls and grows slowly louder, finally coming to a rumbling halt in the parking lot just outside.

Shaking snow from a wide-brimmed bush-ranger's hat, a tall, handsome stranger enters, knocking the snow from his hand-tooled snakeskin boots. He sidles up to the bar, hoping for a glimpse of the Gaelic barmaid, but it seems she has left town.

Nettled, he orders a double single malt with a Guinness chaser and limps over to the far corner of the hearth, settling down with his honey-hued 1953 Dreadnought, and starts singing quietly about some cowpokes way high up in the Sierry Petes.

Sierry Pete enters, spurs jangling. "Ah don't like anybody singin' about that dad-blamed song!" he says quietly but with venom dripping on every word. His hands quietly resting on the faux ivon grips of his twin, silver mounted .44s, hanging from his black, hand-tooled buscadero style gun belt with the silver conchos.

"Ah plumb don't like it," he repeats, and pulling his 1000x silver belly beaver down toward his eyebrows, glowers at the man with the guitar.

"Damn, he says to himself. I shouldn't have asked him to change that light bulb."

Severn then goes about placing a wreath at the spot with a sign saying "DeFrosty--Snowman (Ret.) 2015-2015", when a policeman runs up, stops, points his pistol and yells, "OK, FREEZE!"

the instant the policeman said freeze, one of the more unassuming patrons, emerging from the cold coal bunker in case of the air raid thought..that is it. we can capture the energy of the falling snow, as well as the melting snow, as well as the light waves bouncing off the snow..this will make siberia and lapland and international falls prime tourist destinations, as they are already but mostly for the sturdier sort..this way everyone could enjoy the northern lights and the reindeer stews (sorry Rudolph and Vixen ec.) She grabbed a pencil and a tablet, as she was an old fashioned engineer, and worked out the equations. Sure enough..five times as much solar or other energy than straight solar. This would revolutionize the world. Did she dare hope? Did the world dare hope? Would big bad oil steal her patents, which she planned to open source? No more widows freezing in the garrets. No more frostbite in the Klondike. And the harold angels did sing then.
