Happy Christmas Everyone.

Click on the image above to receive a large, more discernable helping of my sincerest mass-produced wishes.


  1. And a very Happy Christmas to you from The Other Side of Paris where we're covered in snow. Brrrrr! But it is Christmasy.

  2. Thank you Dumdad! Having been raised in the odd, in-between world where we have Christmas on the beach or under an umbrella in the garden, yet receive cards covered in snow and robins, my perfect Christmas would be a little helping of each. That way I could have heavy steamed pud and custard in front of a blazing fire, as well as pavlova and ice cream and strawberries and then a refreshing swim!

  3. I think you should just move Christmas to your wintertime!!!

  4. Why on Earth would we want to do that Jinksy? So we can be cold all the time too? (Goes off laughing)

  5. Ah, you are busy herding whiteness.
    Get that intruder!

  6. What is Santa doing to that flock of sheep? Honestly, the jolly fellow is quite insatiable!

  7. Well yes Violetsky, to be honest they are not so much 'whiteness' as 'creamy-slightly-grey- with-a-touch-of-dags-ness'

    And if you don't know what dags are, Google is Your Friend.

    YP. Let's keep it clean at Christmas. Or only slightly daggy.

  8. right - Dallas Area Gerontological Society. got it.
    it's also a gorcery store, apparently. am not shopping there.

  9. Oh my, you are right Violetsky. Dag must be very much a 'downunder' term. Try this place:

    I had my first white Christmas ever! It actually snowed in Dallas for the first time in 80 years on Christmas. I was there. One more check off my bucket list.

  11. thank you, Katherine hope the season is a happy one for you and yours as well.

    and best wishes for the new year.


  12. We are past Christmas here, but the snow is still falling. And we look forward to the beginning of a new decade. Hurrah! Thanks for your happy greeting. Patsy.

  13. Judy - Welcome to TLVD! Yes, we are hearing all about your whiteness in the Northern Hemisphere. A friend had great difficulty flying out of either JFK and LaGuardia to get back home here for Christmas...

    sUN, thanks for your message - wishing you sUNNy days even if they are not always warm.

    Yes, Pat, a new decade. I hadn't really thought about that.
