Lovely evening with the family and another Christmas video.

Mickey’s Magical Christmas: Snowed in at the House of Mouse. This one included Donald Duck as Scrooge McDuck.

I wonder what Charles Dickens would think of that? lol

Wikipedia offers up many potential sources of the idea for Scrooge. This one is my favorite:

“The man whom Dickens eventually mentions in his letters[11] and who strongly resembles the character portrayed by Dickens’s illustrator, John Leech, was a noted British eccentric and miser named John Elwes (1714–1789).”

Grocery shopping and errands today, so of course behind in client work, which necessarily pushes my fiction off to another day.

That’s the way it goes, eh?

Have a lovely evening, everyone!
