Puff Puffed Puffing Time

A pipe collector as my father was and his fathers mother had been,
a walk with three pipes adorning my chest in hopes to share a puff with a friend. 

Fox apologizes for speaking in third person, I do not know what came over Fox.  Perhaps all this fame, prize gooses and smokey has gone straight to his furry antlered noggin.  Egg Nog...  can't wait.

Bobby Had Had a Bag

Tweleven nights earlier this month,  overnight duffel in paw, scuttled out of Burrow after it gnawed on me that I had a compromising ant infestation.  Scratch Scratch...  no, no positively not...  Molly Fox refused my tale to join my tail to join her tail in her den.  Defeated I hastily climbed the Great Welshep Worthington Oak to slumber a branch.  GRRRR!  Owl Swooped... duffel taloned... fly high... ahhh... beautiful a silhouette in the bright white full moon.  Single Fox in need of a new overnight duffel big enough to sack a 1st prize goose.

Stick 'Em Up

Allow me to introduce you to a good friend of mine.  His name is New England and I am his heart, as I am the 5 point Fox.  It seems my left antler seems to be sprouting another point, but for now is a nub.  In the case that it continues to grow on, I shall simply invite Mrs. Molly Fox to file it on down with her pearly teeth.  Five points is more than enough.  Not the number of antler points which matters, but what you do with what you have.
