Tale of Three Angels — Six Word Saturday

Three little angels have a tale

Angel # 1:

This is our youngest granddaughter, Baby KP. This picture, as so many of KP, has a story. This is the first time she has held her bottle while drinking.

Of course Mrs. Jim and I think she is precocious to be doing that at age four months and three weeks. And aren't cell phones wonderful, their cameras can catch history in the making. Now if I just knew how to use mine--it blinks 12:30 constantly.

Tonight (Friday) we are staying with Karen, Billy, and KP. We are here for breakfast Saturday morning. It is special, KP's FIRST Breakfast With Santa! Of course we will take pictures.

Angel # 2:

Next is a fallen angel. She fell on the way to church, no less. Before she fell she was encapsulated in a snow globe/wind-up music box. The box still plays "Hark the Herald Angels Sing" though you can shake the Dickens out of her but there won't be any snow flakes. A little broken glass, perhaps.

Mrs. Jim bought her when we were newlyweds about 37 years ago. Mrs. Jim is very prudent and of course she bought it on an 'after Christmas sale' so she could save a lot of money.

At the Ladies Fellowship Luncheon Mrs. Jim was responsible for setting and decorating one table for eight. The fallen angel was slated to stand as part of the decoration but somehow she jumped off our couch onto a Persian rug. The glass globe couldn't take the shock.

Angel # 3:

Angel # 3 has found herself a boy friend. He is a cute one although he keeps weird work hours since he is in Santa's Nutcracker Service. I remember when I was in the Army and had to stand guard. Guard duty is a 24/7 type duty. The only reason that I could tolerate it was that we all got the next day off.

She should have a name but for the life of me I can't figure out what to call her. Her maker did not give her a name. Come to think of it, the boyfriend nutcracker guy doesn't have a name either.

They look like a Lonnie and a Sharon to me.
I'm partial to that first angel myself. She's a real cutey!
*giggle* thanks for a post that made me smile!

Happy 6WS!
Loved your three wonderful little angels.
KP is a beautiful angel. Perhaps you can call the last angel, Rose and her boy friend looks like a Gerald to me.

It's true, angels are among us.
Loved your angels!
happy 6WS
The first little angel is indeed the best one of all. I'm sorry that Mrs. Jim lost her angel. That's a very long time to have something so precious. well she still has it, but it's not whole.

Have a terrific day Jim. Big hug. :)
Three little angels,
each with a story to tell—
come, friend, listen well.
Dear Jim,
Thanks for singing so nicely all the way from Texas.
Your KP angle sure have lots of strength in those small arms, as well as a good hand/eye coordination.
AN early bird that treasure of yours.
I like Mrs. Jim having the foresight to buy Christmas ornaments after Christmas Day.
Knowing there'll always (almost) be a new Christmas.
Hope she can find a new angle before New Years Eve.
Were you a soldier in Germany??? Those Nutcrackers cannot be bought elsewhere (or at least, that's what I believe.)
The nutcracker deserves a ballerina angle just like the ones in Tsjajkovskij's famous Suite.

Wonderful tales.
Love all the angels, Jim.

But, no angel food cake? :-)
That first Angel is absolutely ADORABLE. :)
who is the klutz who dropped and broke the angle, i mean angel
ha!...the first angel is a sweetie pie mr. jim and the second one is a sad tragedy and the third one is a fallen angel too. after all, she fell for that handsome fella' in uniform!! terry
I really enjoyed your three angel tales. Sorry about the snow globe though. That's a bummer.

Thanks for playing 6WS!
Angel #1 wins hands-down!
