THE SPACE ALIEN ENJOYS A WINTER HOLIDAY

The Space Alien is taking a well-deserved winter vacation — a lovely ski holiday!  

Loyal Readers will certainly admire the Space Alien’s perfect form at an unidentified but definitely fashionable ski resort!

THE SPACE ALIEN PEPARES FOR DECEMBER 25, 2022

Tonight was nearly the end of Hanukkah this year, so the Space Alien had to prepare the menorah and fry lots of potato pancakes!   

And then, because it was also Christmas Eve, the Space Alien had to help Santa with the reindeer!

December 25 was also the birthday of a dear friend, so the Space Alien needed to get right to work on a lovely cake! 

The Space Alien hardly knew where to begin!  

“Just begin at the beginning!” the Space Alien kept murmuring, and somehow it all fell into place!

The first challenge was Hanukkah!  The Space Alien had helped Judah Maccabee win a great battle and wanted to light the oil lamps but there wasn’t enough oil!   But miraculously the oil lamps remained lit for eight days!  


Here, with Judah Maccabee looking on, the Space Alien holds this lamp aloft so that all can see it!

But tomorrow is also Christmas - and oh my goodness, Santa’s reindeer have all caught colds!  How will Santa deliver lovely gifts to all the children?  

The Space Alien and Rudolph will help! 


Then the Space Alien scurried to the kitchen and baked this lovely cake for a dear friend with a birthday on December 25!  
Such an exciting day for the Space Alien!    Exhausting but Perfect!  

The Space Alien wishes all Loyal Readers days that might be Exhausting, but that turn out to be Perfect!

THE SPACE ALIEN HELPS THE WINDOW WASHERS

As Loyal Readers know, Your Editor lives in a tall apartment building.  From time to time the windows need to be washed.  This task is done by brave men in a specially designed platform securely fastened to supports on the roof.   

Here is a picture taken on July 26, 2022, right outside Your Editor's apartment!  


The Space Alien saw how hard they were working and offered to help!  

Here is the Space Alien, now well equipped, preparing to carry out this important task!   

Thank you brave window washers!  And thank you Space Alien!

THE SPACE ALIEN RECALLS INDEPENDENCE DAY

The Space Alien has been studying the Declaration of Independence.     

The Space Alien's carefully framed facsimile of this document in which the United States declared independence from Great Britain, is dated July 4, 1776, the date on which we celebrate this event.  

It was necessary to explain to the public the reasons for this declaration, and it took two days to reach agreement on the text.  Today we may read this in our own copies of the Declaration of Independence.  
 
Loyal Readers may appreciate this exclusive photo showing the Space Alien helping Thomas Jefferson with this important task!


 Once Congress had approved this resolution it was sent to a printer and 200 copies were made. Of these, 26 remain.  


Here is a link to a printable copy with with more information: 

And here is more historical information.

The Space Alien urges Loyal Readers to read the Declaration of Independence today, and to consider how we can fulfill and expand its promise!
