I assure you that Mrs. C does not want a box of Trojans, not even Trojans ribbed for her pleasure, for Christmas. Of course, Odysseus was one of the Greek warriors. She might enjoy a visit from Odysseus, while you take me to England (it goes without saying: you pay). I'm on Santa's nice list. Maybe. Merry Christmas. Love, Janie

Thank you for the Christmas chuckle, and the origin of that saying, AND for your much better version of it! Have a great holiday, Mr & Mrs Chatterbox :)

You were reaching on that one, but you had me all the way to the end! Merry Christmas to you as well!

This was like some of my posts where I have to warn readers - Now bear with me, the path to the point is circuitous :)

I agree with my friend, Tabor. That's quite the stretch... a long one at that. The answer is jewelry. Now put some hurry in those muscles and splurge on her bling. Merry Christmas!

A blessed and beautiful Christmas to you and your whole family. (Yes, even your mother.)

Have a lovely Christmas, and I will look forward to more posts next year. I will not be opening anything large in the shape of a horse by th e way.

I always thought the recipients of that horse had to be remarkably trusting.

This would have been a nice gift for me if the giant wooden horse had been filled with chocolate. Merry Christmas to you and your family!

I think it is rather interesting that it was not until the ruins of the city was finally discovered that even just the existence of Troy was no longer seriously doubted by "enlightened" scholars.

I hope Mrs. C saw the humour in the box of Trojans.
