Simon has asked Marcia to join him in opening the calendar today. It is his turn and he is wondering what will be inside.
They find the number 19 door pretty quickly.
Simon doesn't waste much time in reaching up to open it.
He opens it up, reaches in and pulls out a package.
Look Marcia! He says.
Two little fox pups.
Marcia reaches over to have a stroke of the little fox cub Simon is holding.
How cute! She says.
Simon pops the first down.
The placing of the second pup (or kit) calls for a closer inspection and a lecture!
Now Mrs Fox, you make sure you look after your little pups with care and NO EATING THE WILDLIFE! He tells them sternly.
You know Simon, I don't think they will, you didn't have to be quite so gruff you know. Marcia tells Simon.
Simon looks at Marcia a bit startled.
Sorry, I didn't meant to sound gruff. You don't think I have frightened them do you? He asks.
No I am sure they will be okay. She reassures him.
The fox family look quite settled.
Simon poses for his Christmas photo.
Simon is from the mid 70s and is a 'blue suit' Gregor.
Marcia missed out on her photo when she opened the door so here is her Christmas portrait.
Whispering....Marcia is probably the least pretty of my girls, but has a charm all of her own. She is Gotz 'No Nose' from the early sixties.
