Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas from Skye and I to all of you for celebrate. Enjoy your day - may it be blessed with the gifts of sharing the warmth & happiness of family, loved ones & friends or if alone then at least with the gifts of kind reminiscences of them and them of you. A special Christmas wish to all of our military service personnel on foreign land or on the seas - God bless you and protect all of you, each and every one - have a Merry Christmas.

Me, I am not alone this Christmas. I've got my mongrel Skye (aka: Skye Girl Of Tomorrow) and the three wisemen tortoises. I'm sure if they could talk, they'd wish you a Merry Christmas as well. 

First Christmas I can recall not having a tree so I lit up the dog.

Doesn't Skye look pretty in her Christmas present. I call it her new atomic collar, after all what would Skye Girl of Tomorrow wear if not atomic! It's still pretty dark out there when we start our walks some mornings; for instance we were out there today at about 0600 and the eastern sky had no real hint of the coming dawn and that lit up collar makes it a lot easier for drivers to see her during our early and late walks. End of the walk, at a few minutes past 0700, the sky was just lighting up nicely.

Right now, Skye is taking after after-walk snooze. I am sitting here enjoying a cup of very strong black coffee, I often need one after our morning walks. Sent a few text messages to family, hope to make some calls later on. I've got a nice rib-eye steak in the fridge that I'll cook up for our dinner (at least she'll get the bone, probably a nice chunk of the steak too), maybe I'll also boil a few shrimp too. I've got an HB Hefe Weisse waiting in the fridge, to be enjoyed with dinner and maybe will also have a wee dram of Kirschwasser. Figured I'd treat us to an extra nice dinner today being it's Christmas.

All the best,
Glenn B

Merry Christmas Glenn.
I'd invite you and Skye over but it's
a pretty long drive.

Stay safe.
