They Will All Be There

Christmas With Family

by country ranch writer

Home for the Holidays Contest Winner 
Home for the holidays! Our redneck family has always come home for Christmas.
All the hunters in the family have full beards or are growing lots of whiskers.
They come home, for this one -day hunting deer and turkey some, whistlers

They are waiting for the deer and turkeys to seek out their decoys spot.
Being ever so silent; still- using their calls to bring them into view to be shot.
There will be more than one relative showing Christmas Spirit in the lot

Showing their family, their hunting skills, bringing home the biggest birds.
Who in their hunting party is going to say the blessing in so many words
The turkeys and deer will be plenty as long as no complaints being overheard.

Christmas time was a time to share and for everyone to be together once a year.
Oh! Dear here comes the Bobby Shade - tree, Boy Blue, Tom T, yelling where's the beer.
They all have bad tempers so we were all warned in advance just to stay clear.

Who else will show up here out of the clear? Oh look, it's Uncle Joe and his weird friend
Dear Lord, I am having this weird dream all over again. Hope they both stay down wind
They smell of white lightning again will this nightmare for me ever going to come to an end.

Honey wake up! You were dreaming, saying no, not again. What's wrong with you?
I said, it is the same dream all over again, what am I going to? I love you, really I do!
Do dreams like this really come true? Something is happening, you got whiskers too!
