Here it is Christmas Day again. Every damned year I say to myself, “Huh? Didn't we do this just last week? Of course, only old people say things like that. If you've got any little kids around you know they think it's been about 10 years since last Christmas.
For the past several years, we have celebrated here with Penelope Keith. Today marks the fourth annual appearance and I intend to keep doing this each Christmas until something comes along that delights me more.
If you are a TGB newcomer this year who is not British or Australian and may not know who she is, there is a bare bones biography of Keith at Wikipedia. And here is some more information from 2013 when she was made a dame for her charity work in the New Year Honours list that year.
The even shorter version is that she is an acclaimed actor and comedian, primarily in television but on the stage too. You can see excerpts from some sitcoms she has starred in at YouTube.
Bottom line: she is a funny woman. So, here is Ms. Keith's justifiably famous version of The 12 Days of Christmas. No video, just audio, and I promise it is worth every minute.
Happy Christmas, everyone, and enjoy.
