Poem for Christmas by Animal Healing.

One December night, a thud came at my door. When I looked to see who, or what it was, I found it was a paw. There he stood before me, a dog all clad in red, and in the clearest voice he spoke to me and this is what he said. “I am your Christmas Dog and you must come with me, get your coat and wear a hat there are things that you must see.”        I thought that I was dreaming and still slumped on my chair, but before I could even argue we were flying through the air. I held on to his tail and hollered really loud, “Don’t worry,” he yelled on back to me, “we will soon be on the ground.”       We flew on down so really fast and flying really low, we slid right down a persons roof and landed in the snow.  We were in a town so far away, and wondering what to do, I looked around and shook my head, for this town it shed no clue. All the lights were burning, in houses all around, and all their fires were flaming as families huddled round. “What is here?” I asked the dog as strange as this all seems, “Come with me,” he whispered,” and we headed on with speed. We did not knock upon a door or drop into an Inn, but headed for an alley and there a rubbish bin.       “Look beneath the bin,’ said the Christmas Dog,”and see what you can see.” And so I bent and looked and what a shock for me. A mother and her pups were freezing in the snow, they hid beneath the bin, for there was know where else to go. “There are other families in this world tonight, barked the Christmas dog, “with no fires to keep them warm, no food is served upon a plate, or coats or hats are worn. You can help this family, or will you walk away, just like so many others who have passed them by today.”                                                                                      Standing in my doorway, I thanked the Christmas Dog, for knocking on my door and so he smiled and tipped his hat and waved a friendly paw. I went back to my chair and sighed with great relief, I was not alone this Christmas night or thinking of myself, or wondering of such foolish things of which I could not help. Instead I had the greatest gift, the warmest Christmas treat, a family I was helping, all asleep by my fire and curled up by my feet.   Copyright © 2017 Animal Healing   stevenrowle@outlook.com    animalhealing.sp@outlook.com                                                        665-235-689   952-209-241

Wanted – Loan of a Guitar  American Coffeehouse guitar jam staring on Torrox Costa beach boardwalk            Hi everyone my name is Buzz and I’m from America.  I am retired and I have been playing guitar (non professionally) for many years.  Hopefully I can rent or borrow a guitar again this winter whilst in Spain.  Anyway, I would like to start an occasional informal low key daytime guitar jam on Torrox Costa beach starting in January and going through April.  I will be staying in Torrox Costa for three months   I like to play, mostly acoustic folk music, Bob Dylan, Crosby Stills Nash, John Denver, Tom Paxton,  the Beatles, Stones, Neil Young kind of stuff.  If you would  like to attend my low key guitar jam on Torrox Costa beach please let me know.  It is completely voluntary and there is no commitment of time or money required; just a chance to bring musicians and lovers of acoustic music together who love “old time” acoustic music.  If you play guitar please let me know.
If you would just like to come and listen in let me know.  Basically if you play guitar I would ask that you play a few songs and the jammers may want to accompany along with you.  I arrive in Torrox Costa January 15.   I would like to start my jam the first week or so thereafter.  So come and support my new “American Coffeehouse on the Beach” this winter in Torrox.    ps: I did not vote for Trump
