    What Christmas Memory reminds you that you're never really that far away from Pink Flamingos and a beer no matter where you live

    I remember when I was just a kid my Mom got very tipsy drinking red wine while she was making out Xmas cards one year
    She fell asleep on the couch and when she woke up later she fell down and woke up with a nice shiner on one eye

    ... so my father had to live down that he was a wife beater for 3 weeks
    because Mom as a penchant for Merlot

    Ah such happy childhood memories icon_biggrin.gif
    Cheers to One and All !

    My dad whom I hate was demanded by mom to at least try to be a father and do something for us.

    Lol well he gave us things at his house wrapped in newspaper.

    It was funny, what a dumb ass.

    I do remember lots of screaming....my grandmother and great grandmother (who I lived with for a while) would be yelling at each other over something, screaming hurtful things at each other, and then my grandmother would storm out (screaming "damn it all to hell") and I would see great grandma pull out some whisky and and start to chug it. (This was normal year round but more obvious around "special" holidays like Christmas). The best was when company would just drop in after a blowout...everyone got so happy, loving and full of cheer so fast....

    Not Christmas but last Thanksgiving. . . .

    My best friend's cousin was in town at the family time share. We were all doing a small 'friends' thanksgiving. So about 8PM I'm on my way over and ask them if the turkey's almost done.

    K's response is, "We forgot to thaw it out, it won't be ready till 1."

    I get over there to find out the rest of the story.

    They forgot to thaw it out so they put it under hot water in the tub.

    Then after a few drinks they were in the hot tub. K got the great idea to thaw the turkey in the hot tub.

    It was moist.

    I hope no one ate that turkey. The hot tub is very unsanitary. If anyone did, it seems they got lucky.

    Being from south Louisiana, we hardly ever get snow...ever.

    Most times, we would spend Christmas at my grandparents old farmhouse in the country. The house isn't well insulated, so feeling the heaters blazing on one side of us while feeling the outside 40-degree temperature on the other side and seeing the windows fog up made it feel like it was Christmas. icon_razz.gif BTW, the foggy windows are what we cajuns call freezing cold and Santa's reindeers don't pass through the swamps, so he uses 8 alligators borrowed from Boudreaux's Swamp Farms.

    My dad accidentally killing the family dog right in front of all of us. We all were sitting in the car on xmas eve ready to head to grandparents and he was getting something on the bench in the garage where a 4x4x10 board was on the bench. He moved it to get what he needed and it slid off right onto the head of the Rat terrier dog that always followed him around. Not what a 5 yr old wants to see on xmas.

    Oh that's so sad ....

    We had a little pug dog when I was growing up
    and she had to be put down one year when I was about 11 or 12
    That was a real downer Christmas icon_confused.gif

    Thanks, I can honestly say that was the first time I ever saw my dad cry. He came over and grabbed me off my moms lap and just kept saying he was sorry over and over.

    My Dad cried too...
    He was a much better suited being a Father figure to them
    than he was to his own kids

    mine is pretty good overall, there have been times when I just want to smack him upside the head and say "your my dad I shouldn't have to ask"
