A Christmas Quote

And in came little Bob, the father, with at least three feet of comforter exclusive of the fringe, hanging down before him; and his threadbare clothes darned up and brushed, to look seasonable; and Tiny Tim upon his shoulder.
--A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens

Kati, do you know I have never read "A Christmas Carol"? The words you have shared with this quote make me wonder why. What a gift, for an author to be able to paint such words. I love quotes. They give us sweet tastes of stories, inviting us to come find the book and enter. I love the picture you have shared, too. Tiny Tim looks especially festive, doesn't he?
