Ruth …from 2018….did I mention she is also a Tom Brady fan?

Ruth …from 2018….did I mention she is also a Tom Brady fan?

With the Seahawks now in the top spot in their division …I thought Ruth might need some cheering up…for those that are not on Ruth’s route …Ruth celebrates when the Seahawks lose and she has not been able to celebrate much this season. I tried to get her into the Twinkle Light Holiday Parade but, maybe next year?

Anyway, many people on her route do not appreciate her celebrations, many just have learned to live with them and some even enjoy them …she has also been stopped by the Forks Police Department and given a warning!

And then there is a small group of Seahawks fans that go to her house when the Seahawks win! Much to her neighbor’s dismay … So this one is for Ruth …

‘Twas the night before Christmas and all through the west

The Seahawks were playing, they were playing their best;

The stockings were hung by the big screen with care,

In hopes that Russell Wilson would throw passes with flare;

The children were nestled all snug in their beds,

While visions of them sleeping all night danced in my head;

With mother in her Seahawks jersey and me in my NFL cap,

We settled in to watch the game, the cat in my lap,

When out on the street I heard such a clatter,

I sprang from my chair to see what was the matter.

Away to the window, I flew like a flash,

The cat went a-flying, with a mighty crash.

I threw open the door and what did I see?

By golly, by golly … it was Ruth-ee!

She was riding her ATV dressed in 49ers gear,

And was that Frankie Valli, that I hear?

The music was blasting she was singing along,

But the game wasn’t over yet it was too early for a song!

And then in a twinkle, I heard something in the air,

It was handfuls of candy she was throwing there!

A wink of her eye and a twist of her head,

Soon led me to know I had nothing to dread;

She spoke not a word, just kept singing away,

And filled all the stockings, it was time for the first play!

She then sprang to her ATV and gave a big whistle,

And off she went like the down of a thistle,

But I heard her exclaim as she drove out of sight,

“I might be back later if the Seahawks lose tonight!”

Hoping everyone has a wonderful Holiday!
