Some old-fashioned fun!

'Twas the night before Christmas & out
on the ranch
,
t
he pond was
froze over & so was the branch.


The snow was
piled up belly-deep to a mule
,
t
he kids were
all home on vacation from school
.


And happier
young folks you never did see-
Just all
sprawled around a-watchin' TV.


Then suddenly,
some time around 8 o'clock,
there came a
surprise that gave them a shock!


The power went
off, the TV went dead!

When Grandpa
came in from out in the shed
.


With an armload
of wood, the house was all dark.

"Just what I
expected," they heard him remark.


"Them power
line wires must be down from the snow.
Seems sorta
like times on the ranch long ago."


"I'll hunt up
some candles," said Mom. "With their light,
&
the fireplace,
I reckon we'll make out all right."


The teen-agers
all seemed enveloped in gloom.

Then Grandpa
came back from a trip to his room
.


Uncased his old
fiddle & started to play

t
hat old
Christmas song about bells on a sleigh.


Mom started to
sing, & 1st thing they knew
Both Pop &
the kids were all singing it, too.


They sang
Christmas carols, they sang "Holy Night,"
Their eyes all
a-shine in the ruddy firelight.


They played some charades Mom recalled from
her youth,

And Pop read a
passage from God's Book of Truth.


They stayed up
till midnight-and, would you believe,
The youngsters
agreed 'twas a fine Christmas Eve.


Grandpa rose
early, some time before dawn;
And when the
kids wakened, the power was on..


"The power
company sure got the line repaired quick,"
Said Grandpa -
& no one suspected his trick.


Last night, for
the sake of some old-fashioned fun,
He had pulled
the main switch - the old Son-of-a-Gun!
