Good Fences Finding a Secret Hideaway

Ho! Ho! HO!  While munchkins and adults everywhere have been chasing mischievous, little Elves in red pajamas, I followed the real deal!

As only seen on this week's 


Oh, yes I did!  Absolutely the real deal.

Here's the proof!

Yesterday, I found myself shivering and waiting outside my own gate, for an answer.

Is that a calendar across your belly?  Or, a secret coded clue?

Reading the sign I gave out a sigh, Elves Only?   But, I must get inside!

I knew parachute jumping would prove worthwhile! Of course, I ventured inside.

Do you want to know a secret?  On the other side of that fence is my house!

Our finest adventure, is to believe...... 

"Imagination is a very high sort of seeing."
  -  Ralph Waldo Emerson

What we've often only dreamed about and heavily imagined, since childhood, has now been proved without a doubt.  But must be forgotten.  This is our little secret!

So dear friends, it does pay to always keep your eyes open.

  "Still round the corner there may wait, 
A new road or a secret gate."
-  J. R. R. Tolkien

Someone is obviously counting down the days on that calendar - but who?

I wondered about the inclusion of the panda, but according to Wikipedia pandas are indeed known to live in snowy areas. And I don't know what the penguins are doing, but they are very cute.
