Dem Hills

Snow covered mountain top.
(click image to enlarge)

Thar's snow in dem hills.
Last night I was freezin'
Cold was me toes and heels.
With blanket of woolen
From me head to me ankles
Covered meself to keep from shakin' .
Temp'ature in the forty
Made snow so white and purtty.

Up there it's white, oh so white...Christmas.

Merry Christmas to all!

Maligayang Pasko sa inyong lahat!

and i can say you're also lucky
to see a white Christmas
on those dem hilly!

Thank you for the warm Christmas greeting. Happy New Year to you and everyone in your family.

Mas maganda nga ang Pasko sa atin, mas masaya. Dito sa amin tahimik lang. Ang snow naman ay nasa itaas lang ng bundok pero malamig din...sobrang lamig ngayon.

Salamat sa dalaw.
