The quiet beauty of your amaryllis clearly speaks to me this Christmas Eve.

This thread and its many posts and sharings has become a soothing oasis. My sincere gratitude to all who contribute to this thread and who make it what it is.

Decorated by the oldest mobster...

Decorated by me. We had 10 for dinner and overnight, sadly a few less than
previous years, but still polished off more than half of a 22lb turkey...

The youngest mobster knows how much we enjoy National Lampoon's
Christmas Vacation so he got these 2 sweaters for me and hubby....

I hope everyone is enjoying their holidays.

I'm a little more colourful than that :P ....

My American geography may not be the greatest, so I am puzzled how one can have such a gorgeous view of crashing
waves when they are in the Capital of Texas?

Thank you all for what you "ALL" bring (sanity) to this part of the world (forum). Peanut, LOVED your bio and that beautiful vacation home!! BS, I can only dream of your flowers, my grandmother would be so proud of you. She LOVE growing flowers (including California Poppies-just beautiful). This was during the 1960's-1970's, she was shocked to learn what some people do with those beautiful flowers. Me like my mother did not inherit that gene.

MOB, I too am a big fan of Christmas vacation. I would wear those sweaters with pride. And I loved your treel Stu, I have family that came from part of your country, that came to the US sometime in the early part of the last century, it is an area I've always wanted to visit (bucket list). Please keep those beautiful pic coming.

To everyone, Happy New Year's and mostly Good Health!!

Peanut
loved that picture of the sunset. Pretty awesome and I can think of worse things to look at of an evening.
Sydney loves to put on fireworks on NYE, and this was was a bit of a damper.....huge thunderstorms from 5PM - 8PM. Then I went to a pub across the road (like about 50 yards across the road) where they had a rooftop view and sat there with Mrs Kiwi talking, drinking (It was her 45th birthday) and taking photos of the 9PM and midnight fireworks. Sorry, the photos were from my iPhone so not the best, but hope you enjoy.

OK, got it working but I can't work out how to post different images :cry: maybe another time

I posted elsewhere to say that I moved from a unit (apartment) to a house recently, and it has been a slight adjustment from living in apartments for 20 odd years.
There is a lot of outside work and maintenance, and lots of interaction with Mother nature.
I recently came across 2 European Wasp nests on the exterior of my house. I thought I'd just try to remove the one I could reach and found out rapidly that they are aggressive, they protect their nest quickly, and they sting multiple times. Fortunately I did not take any photos so will give the pleasure of sharing those a miss.
I have a professional coming out next Tuesday to remove both nests :D

I've gotta work on that. I live in Arizona, brown boring countryside. Maybe I can show you how I spend my New Year's Eve. Tell me again how to post a pic here.

I use Tinypic . It’s free and easy for people like me who are not so good with technology.
You pic a file from your photos , then select message board . You sometimes have to fill out a security word to make sure you are real . Then press upload . Copy from your device . Pop on here and paste .
Or if you really get stuck Mr Crguy has let me email them then he uploads them for me . So out with his role but he’s that kind of guy .

Hey Peanut what’s that big knife for ??
I have spent the day feeding a little squirrel that is playing in my garden . A new neighbour has a new hobby . Killing them . So I have been busy quietly feeding it so it does not cross the road . My youngest son loves them . Ha
