Are your Christmas gifts wrapped and ready?
Have you put up your tree?
Our SHARECROPPERS are beginning to decorate their SHOTGUN HOUSES. . .
and MS. HER CROW is headed their way with a load of cypress, cedar and pine trees. . .
cut from the banks of the PEMISCOT BAYOU (Dell Ditch). . .
They don't have a lot of money to spend on STORE-BOUGHT decorations. . .
so they make-do with what they have. . .or what can be found. . .
I think Cowboy has done the most decorating, so far. . .
We won't ask whose pants those are. . .
They look large enough for Santa, don't they? But, they're the right Christmas colors. . .
Cowboy's neighbors. . . the Turners. . .
are waiting for the Christmas trees to arrive before finishing with their decorations. . .
but they have started with. . .
a WREATH at the door. . .
and one for their prize laying hen, Harriet. . .
Won't be long until our Sharecroppers will be ready for SANTA. . .
He'll be visiting CHRISTMAS EVE. . .at MIDNIGHT
He stops at the DUNCAN FARMSTEAD every Christmas Eve. . .
to visit with the animals. . .and to rest a little. . .
John and I spied him one Christmas. . .
Read about it at:
Young or Old. . .Rich or Poor. . .Make-do or Store-bought. . .
We all look forward to another Christmas together with family and friends. . .
on our little DELTA FARM.
We are also featured in the HOLIDAY ISSUE OF DELTA CROSSROADS. . .

and other stories about Christmases Past with our family.
