You can even say it glows…

17 Dec

Twiddles is a reindeer mouse.  Little is known about this rare breed of mice found only in a small patch of vegetation west of Melbourne.  Scientists are baffled why reindeer mice, usually looking like any other mice on any non-public holiday, suddenly sprout antlers and red glowing noses come mid-December.

With a diet of peppermint lollies, eggnog, and fruit cake, reindeer mice have a perpetual sugar high.  Pretty handy during that mad rush to prepare for the silly season.  Twiddles helped me, or tried to help me, decorate the tree. The trimming and fairy lights do bring out the natural red glow of his nose.

Twiddles has already left for the north pole (with my trimmings and fairy lights!) to join the annual sleigh ride and nibble on the sack of goodies before kids around the world receive their presents.  On Christmas eve, aside from the usual milk and cookies, please do leave a peppermint lolly for this little hitchhiker.

Merry Christmas everyone!

    Awwwww, Twiddles is precious! And I think you are so kind-hearted to ask us to leave him a peppermint candy after he ran off with your tree lights and decorations!!! Very nice of you.
