Well Amigos, there is great relief in the ongoing saga of the Missing Baby Jesus: a new Baby Jesus has been purchased by the Church Nativity Committee and our top Grimes County correspondent who happens to be Slow’s cousin and is a/k/a Church Organist has sent pictures to confirm. Thank you very much Church Organist, and keep the news flowing.
The exhausting three-year drought of the kidnapping of the BJ is now officially over. The person or persons responsible for the disappearance were never discovered so no one has been brought to justice for the crime which is now a Cold Case, but then you can’t have everything.
New Baby Jesus arrived just in time for Christmas – Hooray!
Unfortunately, Bad News often follows Good News, and this is certainly the case (heh, heh) in Navasota, Texas, on this 15th. day of December with 10 days left until Christmas.
Manger Members now homeless – manger fell into disrepair and disintegrated
Manger members scattered randomly across church lawn –
gaping hole in leg of Wise Man’s camel – no repair budgeted this year
The cow is too far away to adore anybody
The Church Organist’s brother The Country Farmer is exasperated with the Nativity Committee and their reckless disregard for historical accuracy and has demanded the Chairman be fired – if he can be found. The Chairman ran off with one of the ladies in the choir two years ago and has participated in the meetings from an undisclosed remote location since then. However, sounds of waves crashing in an ocean are often heard when he’s on his speaker phone during meetings. Hmmm…
So the high drama that surrounds the Church Nativity Scene continues in 2014 with no relief in sight. The Red Man has trouble remembering how the outdoor scene should look. Luckily, one appeared today in Columbia.
Now that’s what I’m talking about
Get me outta here Percy, Pretty is working late at the Mast General Store tonight, and the old woman Slow is dangerous when left unattended…duty calls.
All I can say is HEHEHEHEHE!
You can’t make this stuff up – well, I guess YOU could!! 🙂

This is a darn shame. What is wrong with people? I just shake my head when I read over and over the drama that happens in our world. Merry Christmas my dear friend
Yes, exactly, what is wrong with people?? I wish I knew!! Merry Christmas to you too, Terry!!
Shocking and shoddy!
Exactly…those people in Texas have got to get a grip on their priorities!!!! 🙂
Clearly the people of Texas are far too busy building monuments to the football gods to concentrate on a lowly manger. I hear the Aggies are at it again, and did you catch a look at that new Baylor stadium? That must have been one huge offering plate to collect all those donations! No, it looks like that new baby Jesus will just have to brave the elements until he can field a good football team. 😉
Now Miss Harper Lee, you know we had Pretty and Slow had the biggest chuckle this a.m. when Slow read your comment to Pretty!! The old woman Slow said baby Jesus might need to field TWO football teams: one in Texas and the other one in Columbia!!!! Too funny!! 🙂
Shockingly a true story, I witness news, church organist…………..it is hilarious though, he he
You are our most Reliable Reporter, Church Organist!! What a relief to see a new Baby Jesus, but what a shock to be “manger-less.” Woe is Country Farmer – he doesn’t approve at all. 🙂
Merry Christmas Sheila!
Merry Christmas to you Cristina!!
