The Soapbox family and Rudy the rescue dog would like to wish you and yours a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and a peaceful and happy holiday.
Some of you may have noticed that Rudy has become rounder and furrier; but then again, who hasn’t.
See you next year!

Rudy is very debonair with his rakish appearance! 🥰 He’s the BEST rescue dog I know! Happy Holidays to everyone! 🤗

I think Rudy is as cute as ever. Happy Holidays everyone
Warm wishes to you and your family and many, many thanks for your continuing efforts to inform and motivate us!!
Merry Christmas and I’m looking forward to your political insight and analysis in the New Year, with Thanks. We might even have an election and get a new government.
Well I’ve certainly become rounder and furrier. lol . Rudy is a cute little dog. He reminds me of Gus, our daughter’s little mutt who acts as though he is an alpha-male. Strangely enough, he gets away with it.
Merry Christmas to you, Susan, and all those you love. I hope you will continue to have the energy to write your insightful blogs in the New Year, as I enjoy reading them immensely. I know there is a ton of research behind them, even though they read as extemporaneous thoughts. Well done, you!
A couple of pounds, oh well. He is a much healthier and happier dog than he used to be. Happy Holidays to all.
Thank you, Susan, and Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your family.
As we age like fine wine, a few extra pounds is important. Happy Holiday, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Thanks for all you do!
A very Merry Christmas to you nd yours, and best wishes for the very Happiest of Nee Years. Stay safe and stay warm!
Let’s also hope we see a historical result on Election Day in May: the first Alberta Premier ever to be re-elected to government after a defeat.
Merry Christmas Susan! Thank you for all you do all year, I appreciate it very much.
Heh, that look on Rudy’s little face. Our Fizzy was so excited to get her little gift, it was adorable.
Susan: Thanks for sharing this Christmas greeting. I hope you and your family have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. I’ll share some more fitting music. This is in my music collection, and it is a great album, Wheels Of Fire, released in 1968. It is from the supergroup Cream, who compromised of guitarist, and vocalist, Eric Clapton, bassist, multi instrumentalist, and vocalist, Jack Bruce, drummer, percussionist, and occasional vocalist, Ginger Baker. This is a composition from Ginger Baker and Mike Taylor, Passing The Time.
Susan: Here is my second song pick. It is a Mark Barkan composition, Pretty Flamingo. Manfred Mann are the group, and this was released in 1966. Jack Bruce, who is in the middle, on the album cover, was a brief member of this group. He played bass, and did backing vocals on this song. Paul Jones did the lead vocals. Manfred Mann are a great British Invasion band, because of their catchy, and uplifting music. Manfred Mann, (originally from South Africa), would for Manfred Mann’s Earth Band, in the 1970s.
Susan: Here is my final song pick. This features two former members of Manfred Mann, Jack Bruce, and Paul Jones. It was recorded in 1966, and was released in 1967. Paul Jones and Jack Bruce wrote this song, Sonny Boy Williamson. It’s a homage to the late blues harmonica player. Paul Jones is on vocals and harmonica, and Jack Bruce is on stand up bass.
Merry Christmas & happy holidays to all:) PS: I might be rounder, but hopefully not ‘furrier’!
Best wishes to all for 2023!
