Christmas Day

This photo does not do the tree justice. My sister spends literally hours on her rotating Christmas tree. All of the ornaments are made by her, with beads and "jewels" imported from various European countries. She receives kudos and newspaper publicity for her handiwork, all well-deserved.

My posting has been hit and miss this season because of family illness, memorials, and other time-consuming events; it's not been a terribly terrific year, but 2009 will be better. Posting will be hit and miss 'til we get to Mexico January 31 when I will resume my Mazatlan photos. In the meantime, stick around--don't abandon me! More important: HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO YOU AND YOURS!! PEACE TO THE WORLD AND GOOD CHEER TO ALL!!

    i apologize for such limited commenting lately (and for this cut-and-paste today). Life has gotten in the way, as I can see has happened to you, too, Kate. I'll email you privately.
