Eager child at Christmas.
Enthusiasm, lack of self-consciousness.
Ripping up the wrapping while smiling big for posterity.

Dad with football, son with machine gun.
Eager Christmas Part Two.
They look nothing alike.
Shame, that.
Dad's unbelievably handsome.

Tiny boy with kitty.
Siamese boat cat: her purr's as loud as the engines.
She speaks with her throaty voice, sound of the breed.
Good kitty: stretch tall for a sweet gentle scratch behind soft ears.
