    Default Merry Christmas to all

    'Twas the night before Christmas & out on the ranch,
    The pond was froze over & so was the branch.

    The snow was piled up belly-deep to a mule,
    The kids were all home, on vacation from school.

    And happier young folks you never did see-
    Just all sprawled around a-watchin' TV.

    Then suddenly, some time around 8 o'clock,
    There came a surprise that gave them a shock!

    The power went off, the TV went dead,
    Then Grandpa came in from out in the shed.

    With an armload of wood, the house was all dark.
    "Just what I expected," they heard him remark.

    "Them power line wires must be down from the snow.
    Seems sorter like times on the ranch long ago."

    "I'll hunt up some candles," said Mom, "With their light,
    And the fireplace, I reckon we'll make out all right."

    The teen-agers all seemed enveloped in gloom,
    Then Grandpa came back from a trip to his room.

    Uncased his old fiddle, & started to play,
    That old Christmas song about bells on a sleigh.

    Mom started to sing, & 1st thing they knew,
    Both Pop & the kids were all singing it too.

    They sang Christmas carols, they sang "Holy Night,"
    Their eyes all a-shine in the ruddy firelight.

    They played some charades Mom recalled from her youth,
    And Pop read a passage from God's Book of Truth.

    They stayed up till midnight-and, would you believe,
    The youngsters agreed 'twas a fine Christmas Eve.

    Grandpa rose early, some time before dawn;
    And when the kids wakened, the power was back on.

    "The power company sure got the line repaired quick,"
    Said Grandpa - & no one suspected his trick.

    Last night, for the sake of some old-fashioned fun,
    He had pulled the main switch - the old Son-of-a-Gun!

    Be as smart as you can, but it is always better to be wise than to be smart.

    This is a good one JRow, We had a thread awhile back about someone grumbaling about the power being off. Those times can be a lot of fun if you look for the good things instead of feeling mad about not having power. EB
