Christmas Eve

Christmas Eve, originally uploaded by Chris S Thorpe.
As the excitement and anticipation grows, rumor has it that the red suited one has been busy checking lists and tuning up his sleigh. At our house I see seven fish awaiting the oven!
Hope this finds you "home for the holidays". :)

Playoff Time

December and once again it's crunch time for many teams in the NFL. Except for the talented few (Green Bay Packers) many NFL teams face elimination from the post season.

Long Island's iconic Fire island Lighthouse....The December chilly winds have arrived making walks on the beach a bit less appealing. Time for this snowbird to start packing. Life is good!
