You know Susanne and Clark Kent and Eric and Layla . . .
Cowboy and Liz and Marie and Pamela . . .
But do you recall the most famous Hutchins of all?
Petey the one-eyed terrier
Had a very funny eye,
And if you ever saw him
You would even say,
All of the other Hutchins (and Jacksons!)
Used to laugh and call him names.
They never let poor Petey
Join in other family games.
Then one humid afternoon,
Pamela came to say,
“Petey with your one-eyed sight
Won’t you guide the Bookmobile’s flight?”
Then all the Hutchins loved him,
And they shouted out with glee,
“Petey the one-eyed terrier
You’ll go down in his-tory!”
Merry Christmas to all, and to all a great December.
I’m fading to black for the rest of the month to enjoy some family time.
