Merry Christmas

On Sunday we had an ice storm here in SW Ontario, and while it wasn't kind on the trees or on many hydro customers, it did the magical effect of encasing the boughs and branches in ice.   Here's the view of the decorations on the yews outside our house tonight.



The Christmas tree in the living room of Chez Padre.


Skittles the Cat has her stocking ready for Santa.   Was she a good cat?   I think she's being rather optimistic.


For those of you who are people of faith, Kay and I wish you a blessed and joyous Christmas.   For those of you who aren't, may you know rest and joy with those you love this holiday season.




  1. All our best to you and yours from the BEE!

  2. Merry Christmas to you and Mrs Padre too! Hope you have a great day

  3. All thr best for Christmas for you and yours, Padre. Enjoy getting to go to church as a punter for once and try not to grade the padre giving mass for style, performance and ability.
    As for Skittles, remember that cats are held to a different standard as too "good".

  4. Mike
    Merry Christmas to you and Kay. Is this a working day for you?


  5. Happy Xmas Padre. Fine looking feline if I do say so.

  6. Merry Christmas sir. I hope your having a great time with the family!

  7. Thank you all. Mrs. Padre and I had a very happy Christmas. I was able to help lead a Christmas Eve late night mass, but just adorn a pew with my sweetie on Christmas Day. Company for Christmas Day dinner, delicious food washed down with wine and eggnog, my homemade pies for desert (apple and mincemeat), and good conversation.
    No wargaming presents to speak of, but some lovely clothes and useful household items. My lovely wife decided I needed a book on compost gardening an another on making shadow hand puppets. I don't understand what goes on in her head half the time, but it is a fascinating thing to observe. Tonight I shall settle down with a rum and eggnog and treat myself to the Too Fat Lardies Christmas Special.
    Wishing you all the best for the remaining holidays.
