Little Red Charlie: Nov. 28

LRC remembers well what Monday mornings mean at his Christmas workplace. Children return to school. Mom has a morning meeting and errands and work. Margie the dog tends to nap on the sofa.

So, this clever elf needs some daytime entertainment. Today he's reading a book (Christmas kind, of course) in the family room. The page he's reading? "E is for Elf." (Boosts his self-esteem.)

And come 3 p.m., he'll be perfectly positioned to watch children unpack backpacks and complete homework and listen to dinner being prepared. Around 7 p.m., he's hoping to listen to Mom read aloud Chapter 9 from Winnie the Pooh by A.A. Milne. (He really is a silly old bear.)
