What Happened to November?

Where did November go to? One minute it was October and now its almost December. November seems to be over before it even got started. Mind you, it never really felt like November, shops have had Christmas decorations out for most of the month. How are they going to top that in December? Put out Easter Eggs? No, that happens in January, just after the Xmas/New Year Sales, where everything that was overpriced before Xmas reverts to it’s normal price.

My mail box is full of brochures for things I don’t need and/or can’t afford. Many of the items seem to be for presents that you give to people that you don’t like! I even have a sales brochure for disability aids.

But this isn’t a “Bah, humbug” moment, this is about the disapperance of 30 days of my life without any achievements. Its as if I am just sitting in front of my computer, staring at the screen, as time goes by…

Only 24 more shop-lifting days ’till Xmas!!!

  1. I know what you mean Don, where did the years go never mind the months!

    In a small town near where I live the local council put up the Christmas decorations in September – I kid you not. It all starts way too soon now for every holiday occasion, we are wishing our lives away.

    Thanks for the video, that was one of my all time favourite films. Bogart was a great actor and I can’t recall ever having heard Sinatra sing the title song before.

  2. I’m with Bill on this, it’s the years slipping away that I’m more concerned about. It’s a cruel trick that the older you get the quicker the years go, to be fair it should be the other way around.

    Bah humbug.

  3. You are right Bill and John. When I was young I wished for things that took so long to happen. Now I can’t remember what I wished for. When somebody says “what do you want for Xmas” the answer would have to be “more time while I can enjoy it”.

    Since it is now December, I can wish you both a Merry Xmas and a happy new year, even though we’ve got another three weeks of shopping frenzy to get through before it becomes “Christmas”.

    So I’m flat out (like a lizard drinking) to get the best bargains money can buy. I think I’ll just give IOU’s this year.
