Happy Christmas

They say copying is the sincerest form of a flattery. Flattery, however, is insincere. This copying is a very sincere compliment to YP.

  1. I have enjoyed following your life this year through your blog and your visits to mine where we have shared thoughts and views of things, probably more than here if the truth be known, but the content of our blogs are different of course. Happy Christmas Graham and thank you.

    1. Thank you too, Rachel. We do discuss more on your blog because you blog a lot more than I do and, more to the point, you blog many more 'challenging' subjects. May it long continue.

  4. Happiest of Christmases and most Blessed of Yules to you, dear friend! The warmth of friendship is heartier than the biggest log fire, and reaches across the ocean without extinguishing even a single spark. May the New Year bring you good books you haven't yet read, great wine you haven't yet tried, and anything and everything else that makes you smile!

    1. Thank you, Meike. Well now I know that 2020 is a Leap Year which is something I hadn't thought of. It will be handy having the extra day given the people who have said they will be visiting in February.

    1. Thank you Monica. Wouldn't it be lovely if we had a wish every year that would be granted. We would have to consider when to use it. If we decided to save it for an emergency something silly would happen such as "I wish it wasn't raining" and then that would be your wish gone until next year.

    2. Graham, that's pretty much how it goes in the classic children's book by Edith Nesbit, Five Children and It - "It" being a Psammead, or sand fairy, that can grant wishes... I think it was one wish per day there, but the result was similar anyway (or worse!) ;)

    1. Aye, Adrian, taken in the sun on Christmas day 2010 in New Zealand. Yesterday the bubbles would have frozen in mid air. That's an interesting thought. How low a temperature can you blow bubbles in?

  16. Wonderful photo, full of light and air and sparkle. When I was in NZ in November that's what I noticed about it too. Happy Christmas and a good 2020 to you, Graham.
