Merry Christmas!

December 25, 2009 | Karin's Blog | 21 comments

Hubby wrote a poem, sing to the tune of Jingle Bells!   Oh, and we managed to get a picture of Santa’s littlest helper!

Getting published is a goal.

Like a hard working little mole

We type and write and theme and scheme

And with much pride we beam

A complete work to submit

Got read by a half-wit

Not accepted we throw a fit 

New York doesn’t know shit, OH!

 

Writer spells, writer spells

Working all the day

Plots that thicken, nothing like Dickens

We don’t care anyway, Oh!

 

Writer spells, writer spells

Working all the day

Plots that thicken, nothing like Dickens

We don’t care anyway

 

A month or two ago

At conference I took a shot

I pitched my work you know

She said it wasn’t hot

I’m wondering aloud

How to make this story cook

Published I’d be so proud

Gotta finish this damn book, OH!

 

Writer spells, writer spells

Working all the day

Plots that thicken, nothing like Dickens

We don’t care anyway, OH!

 

Writer spells, writer spells

Working all the day

Plots that thicken, nothing like Dickens

We don’t care anyway…

Santa's Helper
See you next year!!
 
Karin*   Oh, and tell us what your single most fave Christmas gift was!

  2. Mary Marvella

  3. Terry Odell

    Wonderful. And keep writing. The talent is obvious.

  4. Susan Shay

    Susan

    Love the poem. She is absolutely adorable. Hope you are all having a wonderful holiday.

  6. Donnell

    Now that tune’s in my head with some real catchy lyrics, and what a cute grandbaby! Congratulations to the Tabke family!

  7. Liz L.

    Oh my! Hubby missed his calling.

    Baby Gia (can’t remember the name) is a beauty.

    We spent Christmas with my three grandchildren and it was a blast.

    My favorite present was from my whole family. It was a box with “Official Book Signing Pen” on the outside and when you open it, there’s a silver pen with Liz Lipperman, Mystery Writer engraved.

    Yeah! It’s starting to feel real.

    Merry Christmas, TAbkes.

  8. Edie

    Another great poem! And cute picture. 🙂

    It sounds corny, but the single most fav gift is being is being with family.

  9. Donna

    What a precious little girl…her first Christmas, how special.

    Hubster was right on with the poem.

    Have a Merry One!

  10. Monica Burns

    Cute poem. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!

  11. B.E. Sanderson

    LOL, Thanks to both of you for the song. =o)

    Like I keep telling my own Hubby, I already had the best gifts of all – him and Daughter and our furry gray monster. Still, the best gift under the tree was… don’t laugh… a griddle. Now I can make pancakes just like my mother did when I was a child.

    What was your favorite gift this year, Karin? (I mean besides that gorgeous grand-baby.)

  12. J. Carson Black

    Oh, she’s gorgeous! Absolutely beautiful, and such a sweet face.

    Hub, what can I say?

    You continue to rise to the challenge, scaling even more dizzying heights! As lauded as Karin may be as the writer of sexy cops and hot romance, I can well see the day when, addressing a bank of microphones and held-up cell phone cameras, she will step to the microphone and declare, “I’m the woman who accompanied Hubby to the RWA Conference!”

  13. Hubby

    LMAO – Thanks, Jake!

  14. Melanie Atkins

    Too funny. Your hubby has a way with words. lol Love the part about NY. *smirk*

    Your granddaughter is precious! OMG, you must be so thrilled!!!

    My fave gift? A massage gift certificate from my son’s gf. She’s a licensed massage therapist who works at two spas. Awesome!

  15. Karin Tabke

    aside from Baby G? the lovely scrapbook my daughter made for me of my granddaughter. priceless.
    and my boys gifted me with a Wii Fit.

  16. Karin Tabke

    What a fabulous gift, Liz! and so well deserved!

  17. Karin Tabke

    Susan, hubby is a wonderful writer. He just lacks the discipline to keep his ass in the chair and his fingers on the keyboard for more than ten minutes!

  18. Karin Tabke

    Edie, I’m right there with you!

  19. Karin Tabke

    Jake he already hangs out with me at con. when i let him. but maybe you’re right, one day it will be the other way around.

  20. Karin Tabke

    oh, a massage. i so need one! lucky you!!

  21. Liz Kreger

    That is too funny, Karin. Nice going, Gary.

    The little darlin’ looks adorable. Too cute for words.

    Merry Christmas.
