Christmas in June

I know it is not the right season.  Well when you do free lance work you are never on the same season.  Another one of my favorites was also made for a book that is now xcld.  One of my fondest childhood christmas memories was the chirping dove that my grandmother had oon her tree.  You had to plug it in to hear it, and hear it you did.  It was not so much of a lovely chirp but more of a chirpy siren.  Kids loved it and the adults hated it.  Before my grandmother passed away she gave me that “lovely” ornament.  It is on my tree hanging out with its cord hidden.  I plug it in when no one is a round, and I smile.
