Deck Us All With Wednesday Threefer #1LinerWeds

Christmas always makes me think of Pogo Possum, a comic strip my grandfather, mother, and I loved. It was by Walt Kelly, and featured the animal denizens of the Okefenokee Swamp.

I can remember my grandfather singing me this Kelly Christmas carol:

Deck Us All With Boston Charlie.

Kelly, of course, is responsible for two other well-known one-liners:

We have met the enemy, and he is us.


Don’t take life so serious, it ain’t nohow permanent.

This post is part of Linda G. Hill’s weekly blog hop, One-Liner Wednesday. If you have a one-liner or just like them, follow the link.

A WRITING PROMPT FROM ME TO YOU: Do you have a favorite holiday song? What and why?



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    the two quotes I knew. And, believe wholeheartedly in the first.
    now, the carol- obviously they don’t pay attention to alcohol limits.
